I'd like to continue to be your friend. We seemed to work together well during that last project and have a number of things in common. But for the last year, whenever I suggest we meet for coffee and catch up, you respond with a FB invite to your latest sales event (or, excuse me, house party). I'm getting the feeling that friendship with you is contingent on buying your cosmetics/vitamins/herbs/whatever. I understand why you want to make a huge success of your moonlighting home business, be able to quit your day job and "live the dream." But I'm not obligated to buy something I don't want or need to help you do it. It's too bad; I really do like you.
