“Let these (people) know your worth. Ain’t no discounts.” — Fabolous
I don’t believe in asking my entrepreneur friends for discounts and you shouldn’t either. I would much rather get a discount from a major business like Amazon or Target, companies that can afford to give them. Most of my friends who own businesses are investing more resources into their businesses than they are getting out at this point so how could I ask for 33% off?
This doesn’t mean I don’t use coupon codes on my friends’ sites or accept free products they offer but asking for a hook up specific to me is wrong. This is their dream. It’s their livelihood. If you wouldn’t take a discount from your boss on your pay for a week, why would you ask them to?
Make supporting your circle a priority.
