It started well enough as old friends meet. Talk about new business being set up, the excitement of moving into a new office. Trading licenses acquired. Alas, capital is lacking. Though I do not have any to offer, I do know of those that can and may be interested. Sadly, my enquiries were not satisfied. Their backers were kept as a secret from me. Thus, I assumed that I am not trusted enough as I have trusted them, I feel excluded. How am I to help open the door when my question is not answered and I am not privy to the whole scenario ?
I tried putting myself in their shoes and I still can't justify why such a trivial fact should be kept a secret. Not least from a person such as me, considered an old friend who is trying to help. Thus a door closes, and I felt distanced. As much as I would have liked to help, the feeling I get is that perhaps my enthusiasm is not required or even appreciated. Without even trying I sent a small white lie saying that the investor I mentioned is not interested to invest in their field at this time.
I wish them luck.
