Ten years of friendship go by so quickly. They come and they go, and they are not to outdone by the moments, the really meaningful moments, with all of your other loved ones. Friendships mean everything to most people. However, ten years of friendship is still a very long time, and we hope to impart some wisdom concerning how to go about it.
First of all, don’t mix business and pleasure if you can help it. We know, we know, you got your latest promotion because you went golfing with the boss. But, are you really his friend, or are you his employee who doubles as a playmate, sometimes?
Secondly, don’t pressure them too much into doing what you think is best. When you have a devoted friend who begins to mess with your business on your behalf, then it would be okay to express concern for him if he seems to be going down the wrong path. Before that happens, though, don’t push too far or too soon.
Third, if you DO own a business together, then make sure that you compromise on things with which the two of you have difficulty feeling in sync. For instance, if you are eco friendly and your friend is not, then compromise by only having your business make small or utilitarian purchases which are eco friendly.
A great way to do this is to buy from Envirosafe Solutions for your company. Our products are special, eco friendly liquid products, like porta-loo treatment, toilet bowl cleaner, bath and tile cleaner, and solvent free degreaser. This is not even to mention the wide variety of other chemical solutions we carry, such as the diesel bug killer and the antibacterial hand wash. By purchasing these chemicals instead of the ones your company normally buys, you can make peace between yourself and your business partner and friend. You see, even little things like the cleaning and maintenance solutions you buy will, in the end, have an impact on the way your friend sees environmental responsibility. And that is good for everyone: (+61) 1300 88 90 70.
