Friending Your Friends
Or, The Funny Thing About Friends Part 3
–By Jan McInnis, Comedian and Keynote Speaker
with people who are nice: you know, people I would want as friends. If someone isn’t nice, I put a not-so-nice note in their database record and take ‘em off the mailing list. I don’t want that kind of negative energy in my life, regardless of the money.
I’m writing this article not to brag about my friends, but in the hope that it’ll cause you to take a minute and appreciate yours. Make sure you surround yourself with great friends because I think you must choose carefully with whom to spend your valuable time on this planet. Thank you for spending some of it with me.
