My best friend wants to go into business with me, but I don't want to with her. What should I do?
I am not sure how to deal with this one and I am definitely staying anonymous about it.
My best friend wants to start a business with me and I don't really want to.
She was thinking of something child-related as we both have young kids and on the face of it, sounds like a great business idea and I am not against it.
I can see a lot of positives and I think I would enjoy it.. fits in with our lives and all that sort of thing.
I have lots of reasons to say no to her but most of all I don't want to fall out with her and lose our friendship
We have known each other since Junior High so I know her inside out.
In short and the main reason is
I am worried she won't come through... she is a bit flaky and unreliable and I am completely the opposite...
Tidy, organised, I turn up on time, do what I say I will...
That sort of thing
Probably a bit anal about stuff but I know myself well enough to know she would drive me crazy.
I would end up getting left with things to do and she will lose interest part way through.
How do I get out of this one without hurting feelings and losing a friend?
