When it comes to business, that same attitude should be in place. Friends are friends outside the realm of business. But often some friends don’t have any business being inside the circle when it comes to your own company.

Don’t get it twisted. No one should go it completely alone. But you have to keep the right company.

    Great article! I wish I would have read it some time ago. In the last couple of years and rescently, I’ve had to drop a few toxic friendships that were adding stress and unnecessary drama to my life. I’ve always been a loyal and supportive friend and that is why it took me longet to finally drop them. It doesn’t meab that I hate them, it only means that I love myself and my peace of mind more!
