then I would have to charge my non family customers double or even triple to make up for my loss. Do you think they would understand? Probably not. This means that I either treat everyone the same or I can not do business with family or no one at all. I prefer to treat everyone the same. My family and friends may not appreciate this though I am sure my other customers do so much that I don't need any friends just enemies who i do business with. This may seem harsh or unfair. You have to understand though I once sold 3 pieces of lingerie to a friend of a business associate of mine.
Another example was a fellow business associate who had arranged for a Private Pole Party Class for a group of 10 or more. She was nice in that she did not pre-charge the 13 women that were supposed to show up. And she only charged them her cost which was $15 a person. She made no money at all. Only the studio and instructor. 1 person showed up to accept her kind gift. She lost over $150 for her kindness. Business is great when you have no friends it seems and horrible when you do.
