 Steveny we are NOT all friends here,,,,,,most of us are more ,,,,chat or forum aquantances,,,,,,,and this is not off topic,,,,,,,,,In business one needs to be friendly but one needs to be very selective and careful about being friends with customers or going into business with friends,,,,,,,,,,,i have repeat customers and clients in my business going back as much as 40 years and have done business with three generations of some  familys,,,,,,,,when we become friends with some people and socialize with people that are our customers and clients,,,,some of them try to take advantage and want you do do stuff for less money or sell them something cheaper,,,,,,,,we are friends ,give me a deal,,,,,,,,and if everyone is your friend,,,,well that can cause problems,,,,,,,,friendships can end over business dealings and business can fail because of friends,,,,,,,,,,its kind of a balancing act . The same kind of things happen in a lot when siblings go into business together or working for family.,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,I believe the word,,,,,, friend,,,,,,is used way to loosly now days

Thank you for share your business story @0317 That wisdom words of business advise being friends and selective friends come hand in hand. I do know a real friend will not take advantage of situation especially when you're business dealing with them. Those who claim to be friends will show their trueself when opportunity rise. As human nature we tend to be TLC. In business mindset somwtimes it best to cut loss and pull out to those whose use you to get what they want. True to self first "treat other as they treat you." I will reminber your words of advise @0317. Thank you for sharing with Our Community Forums.

@StevenY thanks for the tag tho I never ran a small business myself so not too tidbits I can share. Now in my experience dealing with small businesses what I find makes them thrive is in the way they treat customers. It’s when they treat people like friends and family is when they have a good business. Tho to @0317 point doing so can be a bit tricky when it comes to how much you’d charge for services.
