I came across this article I want to share from Entrepreneur: "Stop Spending Time with Toxic People".
I completely agree with its sentiments. It's inevitable that at some point in your career, you will associate with toxic people. They may be good people but for some reason you and that person are oil and water.
Not everyone is meant to get along. You will do yourself and even the toxic person a favor by limiting or even letting the relationship go.
There is nothing healthy about forcing a toxic relationship to continue. You will both be better off walking away or at least letting the business relationship fade away. You may make better friends than business partners. And that's okay.
We filmmakers are entrepreneurs. We are only as good as those we work with. So if the people you work with are toxic then everything you do will have toxins.
Cleanse yourself in 2014! It really makes a difference to your performance and your life!
