“You Disgust Me.” Words that modified my enterprise – and my life – all the time.

by Marie Rodriguez

I’m disgusted employing you. You stole all my ideas, copied my brand, and have an identical enterprise with NO QUALIFICATIONS!”

Those are the remaining words I recall my beautiful friend of twenty years sending to me over text in our last conversation. She blogged about it days later.

Honestly, at that factor, I changed into so tired (life turned into a piece of a shit sandwich at the time) the words didn’t even sear the manner they had been meant to. That didn’t happen till months later after I re-examined the change.

Weeks earlier than this falling out, I had excitedly despatched her my new emblem – the first sign my new business plans had been authentic. I am doing it! YAY ME!!.

“You Disgust Me.” Words that modified my enterprise – and my life – all the time. 3

I had seen her just months earlier than over brunch. I was in her town for a convention and had a lot to tell her.

I told her I was going through some pretty significant shifts….Old friendships have been ending, I changed into elbow-deep in gaining knowledge of approximately something called “the law of attraction,” AND I had just been requested to put in writing a chapter for an anthology with the aid of an already published editor. Woot!

We talked for hours, and I told her I wanted to begin my business…should she inform me how she commenced hers? What’s concerned? How did you do your brand? – It’s so first-class! Your website? How do you locate clients? There were so many questions from a completely green-to-business me. I knew NOTHING, and I desired to discover the logistics from a person I cherished and depended on.

She was in enterprise for about a year, doing communications and video production. She became happy for me. Enthusiastic about sharing what she knew.

Then, best months later, I despatched her my emblem. I had designed it from a reasonably-priced do-it-yourself logo template tool I had located online (because all of us begin somewhere, proper?).

When I paid attention to my lower back, she texted me. She became dissatisfied that I “copied her logo.” I was at a loss for words…they had not been alike.

She went directly to annihilate me for copying her enterprise and being a total fraud because she had qualifications and was consistent with her. I did not.
