When to Walk Away

Today I suggested my company walk away from a deal that's on the table with a billion dollar company.

I did so for one simple reason. We haven't felt good in the two meetings we've had with them so far.

They want to get started with us but they're pushy and uncomplimentary at the same time. I figure the same rule that applies to dating or friendship should apply tobusiness: If you go on a couple dates and don't feel good on each one, lose that person's number.

It doesn't matter how good looking the person is. If you don't feel good afterwards, don't go back for more.

Seek to do business with people that love what you do and treat you well. Your greatest rewards in life will always flow from choosing things you enjoy, not tolerate, in life.
