Dear Experts, I just got a job working for a guy that has been my idol for awhile now. I've known him for years, kept in touch with him after I graduated, etc. I was so psyched when he offered me a job a few weeks ago at his company as a sort of assistant. He's a really busy guy, has a couple of businesses, is very well-known and successful in my town. So, imagine my surprise when I learned this week that A) he's cheating on his wife, and B) he expects me to cover for him when she calls. I don't know what to do. I know his wife, she is very nice. I think it's terrible that he is cheating on her, but I don't know the whole story, nor do I want to know. I just want to do this very cool job (I'm getting paid well too), learn a bunch, and hopefully, move on and up in his company. I haven't told ANYONE about his - not even my girlfriend because she would tell me to quit. Also, I would hate for it to get out and be my fault. What's your advice?

Fast-forwarding to today, he expressed urgency to relaunch with a short game to start generating revenue quickly and a long-term plan to establish themselves in the space.
