Business vs. Friendship

So I know I said I would write the next post on pitching, but I was inspired to write on business and friendship after watching VH1’s T.I & Tiny: Family Hustle. Seeing Tiny’s hairstylist get upset about how she was treated caused me to ask, can friends do business together?
To me, the answer is yes. But both parties must be aware of the positions. They must be professional at all times in situations pertaining to work. They must realize that the job comes first and their friendship is second. I am not suggesting the friendship is irrelevant, but business must always come before pleasure. Feelings cannot affect job performance. You have to be willing to set aside personal differences and do what’s best for the company and/brand.
Having respect for each other also plays a major part in how well the collaboration goes. Without setting ground rules and expectations up front, the business and friendship could be ruined.
Friends can be great business partners with a healthy working relationship or they can turn into each other’s worse nightmare depending on what guidelines they establish.
