There will come a time in your business that someone will throw shade and think you will never find out about it. They will then turn right around and ask for your help.
These are the types of people you cannot invest your time in. They want what you have but they are also jealous.
They question your decisions and aren't self-aware.
If you're not self-aware you shouldn't be throwing shade at anyone. Period.
If you have a client who says they totally love what you do, begs to work with you and then at questions your advice and knowledge - you need to tell them to GTFO.
If you have a spouse who wonders WTF you're doing in your business, questions if you're charging enough and asks 20 times a day how much money you made - you need to tell them to GTFO.
If you have a friend who looks at you cross-eyed when you tell them about your business and how you make money - you need to tell them to GTFO.
If you allow someone to continue to throw shade... you must be a glutton for punishment.
Surround yourself with positivity, not shade.
