What to do about an ex friend who is in competition with me in business in my local area who is spreading lies about me.

I was made redundant in august. She said i could do cash in hand work for her. When i said im not comfortable with that but would set up as a sole trader and sub to her she initially passed me work saying i wont effect her in any way. Now she does not speakvto me but spreads lies about me hurting my clients dogs snd doing a bad job and that they will see what im like in time. What should i do worried about my new business i have been working very hard sibce then and dont want it ruined by her....

Let your work speak for itself. Do your job with excellence and integrity and things will work out in your favor. Don't let her lack of character be a stress to you. ...As a consumer, I wouldn't listen to someone like that... I would take my business where ever I had originally planned on going and if I wasn't satisfied THEN I would go somewhere else. Most people can see right through caddiness.

Tell her if she doesn't stop, you'll file a law-suit against her. Especially if she is hurting your business and you can find people that will testify on your behalf. Hit her where it hurts...in the pocketbook! Then she'll be so discredited, it won't matter what she is saying anymore.

You won't be ruined, just ignore her. She's trying to hurt you with her lies. Don't play that game with her. People like that have nothing better to do than ridicule others because usually they are jealous. It will annoy her more than you if you just ignore her and stay away from useless drama.

Send letters to you clients with coupons to encourage them to come to you and some money back guarantees for satisfaction. Say something like "if you have experienced a bad result come see the experts". You can't control what other people say or do but you can go around them over them and through them!
