Imagine with me for a minute that I started a business selling basketballs to people and I had just started the business so I hadn't even made any money but I knew that in history there have been some people who have made a lot of money selling basketballs and when people play basketball they get exercise and that's good for them so wow this is great...
....but imagine then if I tried to get all my friends to also sell basketballs because when they sold a basketball I got a little piece of their sale and so I also wanted them to get other people selling basketballs because if the whole world was buying, selling and playing basketball the world would be better - right?
No...the world would be incredibly annoying because I don't need a freaking basketball and I don't need a business selling basketballs and nobody is gonna listen to me give them a sales pitch about a business selling basketballs except my friends who feel bad for me...so then it gets worse because now I don't really have any friends anymore because all my friends are now only business prospects....do you see where this is going. The world is not better because of this crap.
One of my business mentors Jeff Jochum told me a long time ago to "never shit where you eat" or you'll have no friends and people without friends don't succeed.
If you already have a business I suggest sticking with your core business and building that up. This is not the time to branch out - it's time to buckle down and get some solid relationships and a foundation.
so there's my 2 cents...ciao.
