Now that I have completely went in a new direction with my chip chase I got cats from the past wondering what I am doing. When I first started the company I was young as probably most of you cats. Now I’m meeting people in their 40′s and 50′s who probably was old enough to be my parents and they were all shocked. Now when I first stepped in the door they didn’t really respect me and I was cool with that as I didn’t respect them. Most of the time I threatened to fvck up their whole business over 5 bucks so usually I got paid on time. So after some years they finally fell back. But, when I decided I think I found a better angle to the chips now they all are emailing me like what can this young cat be doing now that’s better than this hustle!
When I decided it’s time to move on I called up my clients and referred them to everyone I can vouch for in this game. Most of them I actually helped to start their business because they were people I could rely on at some of my vendors. When I say I helped them I mean at one time I probably hired them or floated them until they got their shit right. Now none of them thank me for it as they were all older than me and one lady in particular really couldn’t believe it. This lady was in Chicago and I flew up there quiet a bit on the North Side near O’hare. She didn’t know the first thing about starting a business and I sat down with her over a expensive lunch and pretty much showed her how I set up mine.
Fast forward to today and I get a email saying just checking in on what’s my next move. Now mind you I sent some of my clients to her because I know she can do the job. Me and her never really got along primarily because she didn’t like taking direction from me. Also, I pretty much schooled her in her early days of business as she was about to give me 50% of her business if I let her clients flow through my company. But, being that I don’t like no mess with my chips I just flew to Chicago and helped her set up her own shit.
Back to the story so today she emailed me saying I’m just checking in! Now part of me thinks she genuinely wants to know and the other part of me thinks this Devil wants to see if I have fallen. I have yet to respond to her email as I don’t like to respond to shit when I’m thinking. But, I’m leaning towards her checking in being under a devilish tendency. In all the years she has been in business we never talked once now it’s like what’s up? Maybe I’m overreacting but shit at least I’m reacting!
