entertainment industry coach question 560: What if you don't want the friend around because he's a "liability"?

This was in response to yesterday's blog. Okay, that's another can of worms. You are going to have to evaluate how important this friend is in your life. For example, you said he is a "couples" friend, and your wife loves his wife. You are going to have to tell him that you are being forced to hire other people. Or, if he knows that's not true, you will have to explain to him that you have another person who you have a better working relationship with and that you really want to keep your friendship and work separate.

The bottom line is.. again, if he's a true friend, he will have to get over his own "stuff" and be supportive of you. If he can't do that, you and your wife may have to find another couple to hang out with.
