“Dear Verbalizm, I’m 6 months into my journey as an entrepreneur. I’ve made several strides to build and develop my business, but the more time, energy and effort I put into my business, I lose more and more friends. Many of the people I spent a long time hanging out with aren’t interested in hanging out and my social life is starting to suffer.

Mr. Anonymous, I’m glad you had the courage to ask us for advice. The thing with the journey to success is that it depends on how you spend your time. Do you spend that time growing yourself and growing your business? or do you spend it in a rut, working a dead end job and spending money you don’t have to go to parties and wake up the next day with a hangover and no memory of the night before? How you spend your time is an important factor. Even then so, WHO you spend your time with is just as important. If you hang around people stuck in this rut, they’ll more than likely drag you back into it.
You are only as evolved as your 5 closest friends, and if they choose to leave you because you’re doing better than they are, you’re better off alone. If they want to leave you because you spend more time on your growing business than you do with them, they’re not worth it. It’s best to simply work through what is in front of you, that being your business. If your friends don’t support you in your journey to success, it’s their loss
