So you’re thinking of going into business with your best friends. Seems like a great plan, right? You get to make money while working with people you love and doing something you care about. But if you aren’t careful — or if you’re anything like Ders, Blake, Adam and Karl — you and your BFFs could shortly find yourselves at each other’s throats, vindictively sprinkling butt hairs into burritos.
Don’t let this happen to you. Follow these tips to learn from the guys’ mistakes.
DON’T GET DISTRACTED.
This should go without saying, but when you’re at work, actually do the work. Don’t get high instead and make a giant burrito named Shaquille BurittO’Neal.
DON’T HUMILIATE YOUR FRIENDS.
Don’t teach your friends a lesson by making them dress up in costume and drum up business on the street — especially if they are the type of friends prone to accidentally setting themselves on fire.
SERIOUSLY — DON’T EVER TOUCH ROADKILL.
Again, we shouldn’t need to say this, but whatever the nature of your business is, don’t feed anyone roadkill. That should be a given, but we don’t know what goes on in that head of yours.
HONESTLY, DON’T DO IT AT ALL.
Finally — and this is probably the most important tip here: Maybe don’t start a weed-based food business in the first place if you and your friends are avowed slackers whose ambitions rarely rise above throwing an 80s theme party and/or getting up off the couch. Just a thought.
