Market socialism is fully socialist (yet you suggested its implementation).
Capitalism and socialism are like oil and water. There is no mixing the two. You either have a socialist system with workers / public ownership of the means of production, or capitalism with privately owned businesses.
"Mixed economies" like in the Scandinavian countries are distinctly capitalist systems that simply provide welfare for their inhabitants and limit some of the excesses of a completely deregulated capitalist system. These social democratic* states still exploit workers, and as such shouldn't be supported by socialists as anything more than a bandage over the gaping wound that is capitalism. In social democracy, the bourgeoisie are still in control, and as we see in this modern age of austerity, the niceties of welfare and other services that were fought hard for can be easily taken away from workers. In regulating and attempting to fix some of the faults of capitalism, social democratic states actually present a more formidable opponent to socialists, as the self destructive nature of free market capitalism makes for instability and more opportunities for socialist agitation (note, I am not an accelerationist, nor do I support them).
Market socialism and mutualism combines the usage of a market (markets ≠ capitalism) with workers / public ownership of the means of production in contrast to socialist systems using gift economies (communism) or central planning. I find there are still issues stemming from the use of markets, but having worker's ownership at the very least should mitigate some of the more pressing issues and exploitation of capitalist economic systems.
Socialism is the antithesis of corruption and stagnation. In socialism, our imaginations and abilities are the only limit to our progress. Technology and science will never again be discarded or abandoned because it is unprofitable. Culture will be unchained as artists no longer have to sell out to survive. Corruption will be limited as well as we extend democracy to the workplace. No more will out of touch dictators we refer to as "bosses" control our workplaces. Think of how easy a monarchy/dictatorship would be to corrupt versus a democracy. In dictatorial systems, only a single person at the top has to fall to corruption. In democratic systems, this potential corruption is distributed across a wide array of people. If you still believe that socialism will be corrupt, then your issue is not with socialism, but humanity.
* The phrase "social democrat" has a long history and ties to Second International era Marxist politics. However, in modern use it refers to capitalist welfare states, not socialism.

I get what your saying kind of. So if i run a bussiness and let the workers take control money would be handed out equally or more mney would be handed to those that work harder?
Use capitalist policies
The workers in the business would all own a portion of it at that point, and depending on the type of socialism, could divide the surplus value they generate between themselves or the community in a myriad of ways. The commodities provided could compete with others on a market with surplus value directly remunerating the workers (market socialism), they could be freely given based on need (communism), they could devise a time, effort, or contribution based system (look into parecon and labor vouchers), workers could just decide to equally distribute surplus value between themselves or the community, or they could do something different. Socialism is much more diverse than it's critics give it credit for. When we reach socialism, it's in the workers' hands how they choose to mold society.
Thats awesome! :D
