“Short accounts make long friends”.

A man uttered this phrase to me yesterday when paying me (promptly) for a gig. I liked it.

Immediately I was reminded of another business-related phrase…”It’s just business”.

Two different ways of doing things.


The first one encourages friendship in business dealings, the second can be used to excuse actions in business dealings that would rarely be seen between friends.

You can’t be friends with everyone you do business with. Respect should be a minimum though.
