How To Blow the Whistle, Get Heard, Get Paid,
and Live To Tell the Tale

“It takes a great deal of bravery to stand up to our enemies, but just as much to stand up to our friends.” —J.K. Rowling

Do you know that something is not right at your workplace—like tax fraud, securities fraud, healthcare or government fraud? Perhaps you’ve asked your co-workers or supervisors about it and were shocked or disappointed when they told you to ignore it. Maybe you have tried to change it. You might even feel that you are a part of it … and you can’t stop thinking about it.

Taking a stand. Telling the truth. Taking on wrongdoers. Doing the right thing—and reaping the financial rewards. Being the whistleblower sounds wonderful, doesn’t it? But it hardly ever feels that way. The process is hard and long. You will be accused of lying or told you are wrong. You will face retaliation from colleagues and friends.

When you feel that there is absolutely no other way to solve the problem—that is the time to blow the whistle.
