Years ago, I met a millionaire. He taught me 3 lessons.
1. Never ask your friends for financial help. They will look down on you.
2. No matter how bad things are, always look good. Do not let anyone see you sweat.
3. Do not spread your problems around. People will avoid you.
When you are a millionaire and start asking other millionaires for help, that means you have fallen. They will never send opportunity your way because you have become a financial risk.
Ask for advice.
Don't ask for money.
Your dignity and respect are intact.
You guys don't understand.
@akinalabi is my friend.
Never asked him for $1.
We have done some business in the past that brought me some money.
He can call me to do some business where I will deliver value and get money. So there is mutual respect and dignity.
Get my book CLARITY from okadabooks. It is a game changer.

You guys are under the dangerous assumption that all your friends want you to be successful. Some are envious of your success.
It was Joseph's brothers who wanted to destroy him. Friends could have done worse.
Maintain your dignity, self respect and honour.
Don't ask for money.
From the responses here, some people think your friends owe you financial assistance.
They don't.
Your financial problems are your responsibility.
They owe you friendship, not money.
There is a universe of difference between the two.
Let me shock you guys.
There's a guy who has Dangote's number. They became friends through family connection.

He has NEVER asked Dangote for $1. Even when he is in financial doldrums.

You know what?

Dangote introduces him to great people in society who open doors for him.
Get my book: 8 Laws Of Financial Freedom on okadabooks.

I watched this on 700club.
A millionaire fell into financial difficulty. He didn't ask anybody for help. He didn't declare bankruptcy to protect his personal assets.
He started SELLING his property to pay back debts.
Don't beg for money.
Ask for advice.
Friends will respect you.
How many of you here have ruined a relationship or seen relationships ruined because of money related issues?

Please be honest.
Your friends don't owe you money.
You cannot use friendship to compel or manipulate them to give you money.

Money is NOT a reward for friendship.
Money is a reward for value.
Called a friend who has connections on 3 continents. Big guy. I asked him how I can add value to his organisation. Shared some ideas with him. He was excited about the possibilities.

Do I need more money?
Never asked for $1.
Friendship, respect, honour intact.
Apparently people don't know the difference between asking a friend for advice and asking a friend for money.
