I'm sharing this because even in this early of a stage, I know that what was encountered that night was NOT the way business is conducted. If you are going to dive into owning your own business, no matter what it may be, know that the key rule is to leave emotions at the door. Business, no matter how nice you are, is a cut throat atmosphere and you will have your good and your bad and you will come across a lot of the bad. But never, never let anyone bully you into doing something that you know is not right for you. In the end, you have to make the choice that's the right fit. Now you might make some enemies along the way but know that not everyone will conduct themselves in an unprofessional fashion.
On the other hand, try your best to be as professional as possible because in the long run, you will see that more and more of the good people will be more than happy to work with you for years and years to come. We managed to put that lesson into play that night and have cut ties with that company. But we know that another opportunity will be coming down the road.
