small story.
i had an idea for a side thing i could do and roughly make 400 euro per month. Found a semi-friend who could help me out , proposed a partnership to him.and then waited for his answer.
three days after that he said to me no.
Because of the birth of my second daughter i had no time to follow up this project and abbandoned it.
eventually thirty minutes ago i had the opportunity to discuss with him why he declined my offer.(offer included good profit margin for him)
he told me that he found it difficult to believe that i asked for something like this. he told me that i have two salaries coming every month in my house and going after such a small amount made him think that i have something wrong (he mentioned gambling - betting - mistress - drinking etc).
i have nothing of the above wrong with me.
i only want to escape the rat race.

the point i want to make here is that when someone is an employee and a well paid one, when he is reaching out to people to start ventures in order to maybe achieve fastlane or help along the way, people may think of him as a person in great need for money due to peculiar reasons. Because people of the slowlane mindset think that there must be something wrong with him because he cannot settle down with the money he gets as salary.

Why did you feel that you needed him in the first place?
