I.Read and translate the text. Write down your translation of the first paragraph.
1. Many stakeholders have relationships with you and your business that the law regulates. Employees have rights, customers have protections, your contracts with vendors carry legal obligations, and your loan with a bank must meet legal standards pertaining to a few stakeholders that could have legal claims on your business. You must deal with all of these stakeholders in a manner that meets the requirements of the law. When dealing with lenders, the law says that your failure to pay can result in forfeiting your collateral. A vendor has the legal right to sue you if you don't pay your invoices. Even in cases where a violation will not subject you to criminal charges, you could be subject to a civil lawsuit, such as when a customer or an employee gets injured on your premises. As you deal with stakeholders, keep any legal implications of the relationship in mind.
2. Any new project you undertake requires financial support from stakeholders. To make money from an initiative, you must sell to customers. In addition, you may have to get credit from lenders and vendors. You have to safeguard stakeholder relationships where money is at stake. For example, you must treat customers fairly and honestly, or they can stop buying from you. If you consistently pay vendors late, they may stop extending credit to you. A lender may call in a loan if you fall behind on payments.
3. Some stakeholders can disrupt your business plans and cause uncertainty in the operation of your business. They can actually influence or veto your decision-making. For example, a bank that turns you down for a loan you planned to use for expansion has basically decided your expansion plan is not viable. If you decide to raise prices, customers may challenge your decision by refusing to buy from you. An investor may not approve of your new marketing plan, and a neighborhood watch group may influence you to install lighting to make your property safer at night. Though you may have gone into business to make your own decisions, stakeholders may rein you in with their own needs and opinions.
