Stop buying products or services SIMPLY because they are being sold by friends, relatives, or close associates and not for the VALUE the product offers.
I buried that feeling of indebtedness in 2017. Call me heartless. Call me mean. I’ll be good.
Look here, sometimes you don’t need a product or its not even a priority, but you go ahead and commit funds to it to promote a brother or a sister. More of buying an item you don’t need but you want to be there for the seller!
It was my biggest headache up to 2017. A big stress factor. From legal services, Audit, Tax, IT services to Marketing. Why?
Just because we do lunch together, don’t think if you give me sloppy services I will understand. Because “You are my guy”, “Man we have come from far.” “You are my OB/OG, You are my homie”.
These terms have been used to screw me. Am done. Yet on the other hand I engage new people because I just want the job done properly. They don’t know me. I don’t know them. But they do their work and go. They even exceeded my expectations.
…. And this is two way.
I know a big number of people who give me business maybe for the above-mentioned reasons. Just as I demand top class service, so should I offer it in return.
Call me out for my failures. If I can’t meet the promise I don’t deserve that penny. Let me not be a stress factor be to you.
