On Friends and Customers

John Saddington @8bit

A friend of mine wrote something incredibly-kind yesterday and as I read it I remembered that my friend was once a customer of mine!

In fact, @titans was part of the very first #yenCAMP cohort earlier this year! I walked him through a business & community-building bootcamp and during that time we built a real, authentic relationship to the point of becoming friends.

Is that weird? It doesn't feel weird, especially in these insane times! In fact, most of my friends are folks that I have never met in the meatspace, so, this feels as natural as breathing these days.

I'd like to become friends with all of my customers, if I could. Perhaps the platform that we're building can help facilitate that even better...
