Business 6.9

Relationship = Business. Business = Relationship. Simple. No long thing!

My analysis of relationship and how it works cuts across all platforms. The better you understand the business of running a relationship the better you can handle bankruptcy a.k.a broken hearted, left-high-and-dry, etcetera etcetera...

My first rule in getting into any business, I ask myself the most important of all question: What's in it for me? Now, many of us might see this as a selfish thing to do, but remember, no one will share your loses with you. Well, your friends and close relatives (if you are open to them) might use lines like "I know how you feel, take it easy and move on, bla bla bla sheep have a wool and wipe your tears." Bullshit! They don't. Or they might say "shebi I told you!" So? It's all political. Trust me.

Before going into any relationship (crushing, dating, sexing, marrying, or unNakeding), think of it from the businessman/woman's perspective. Do some kind of imaginary business plan (or relationship plan). Check the pros and the cons, create an exit strategy. Work through the process with no attachment at all, because you are about to invest the most valuable resources into it, your Dignity, Pride, Sanity, and Fragile Emotion. The last thing you want to be doing is spending that shit like it grows from a tree (funny it does. lol. On that kind of tree sha.).

For every relationship I get into, I see it as a business idea. Sweet and Juicy from the outside, but the headache of running it could be fatal to your mental stability. And the last thing I want to do is run a business that is doomed to fail. Love they say is blind, so why use a blind muthafucker to run your business? Shine your eyes! Love is basically an Advert Copy used specifically to boost your profit margin. So use it wisely. Because in the end, the poor thing gets the heat.

And as far as relationship goes, it's a double lane highway built on a single lane. And if the traffic is not well coordinated, you find yourself rolling down the hills of frustration. And trust me, its not the best thing to wish for during Christmas. If your business plan doesn't stand a chance in the real world, don't fool yourself, back the fuck off, else you'll be another statistic in history of failed businesses.

If you want to learn how to run a Fortune 500 relationship, think at the speed of thought, get stupid once in a while, but don't dwell in that shit hole. Know when to call it quit using your exit strategy. And even if you don't make it to Fortune 3billion, you'll still have your dignity, pride, and perhaps fragile emotion and mental stability to run another business from ashy to classy.

Good luck!

you are right actually to an extent.. you do have to think about the pros and cons. and benefits.. who wants to be in something that they are not profiting from. sounds crude but true

I love this analysis. Problem is not everyone is built to run a business...sometimes there is no exit strategy, and the truth hurts.

UnNaked, even though you're really crazy, I cannot help but agree with you. The long & short of this ur business plan is for every individual to love with his or her heart and think with his or her damn head!


But you're still crazy o!!

I agree 100%.
That's how to approach relationships and marriage.When I was getting married I looked at it as a business proposal...what's in it for me?It paid off big time...4 years and's all good
