Friends: It's natural to expect support from those you've bonded with over the years, but sadly, that isn't always the case. Many of my so-called friends, people who preached about standing through thick and thin in friendship? Even during a year of running free yoga fitness sessions, their disinterest was evident. Basically, they were reluctant. In reality, they seemed more inclined to dine out with you, some when it’s free meal, apart from speaking for hours on the phone. However, when you try to engage them in your business, you may find their enthusiasm sorely lacking. The moral here is that, in many cases, it's better not to divulge your business endeavors to friends. A significant number of them might become envious and secretly hope for your failure.
Strangers: Surprisingly, the business world is filled with strangers who are rooting for your success. These individuals often transform into loyal clients, providing the support your business needs. A curious thing you'll discover is the number of people who are simply lonely and will use the pretext of business inquiries as an excuse to connect with you. While some may genuinely inquire about your business, others will exploit your phone number for forwarding various messages on WhatsApp. You might even find individuals promoting their own businesses or looking for free conversation. They view your phone number as a source of companionship.
