There are certain people you should never do business with, let alone consult with on a regular basis. Edwin Miranda has listed four types below for educational purposes.
The Four People Edwin Miranda Warns You Against In Business
1) You should avoid anyone in consulting who spends their time talking more about people than they do about the brand. Edwin Miranda warns that consulting with gossips can do more harm to your company than good.
“They are not there to talk shop or how their consulting firm can help you. They are there to gather dirt on you and others in the office. Stay away from these people. They can take back anything they have learned and used it against you later.”
2) Did you have a very frustrating meeting with a consultant who flies off the hinges for no specific reason? That type of person is very temperamental, according to Edwin Miranda. You are better off not getting involved. Thank them for their time and lose their card.
You do not want to get into business with someone like that. Anything can set them off. That is not good for business.
3) Edwin Miranda explains the third type falls under the “victim” category. We have enough victims in this world right now. We do not need anymore. Avoid getting into business with them. They will make everything about “them.” That is something your business cannot afford.
4) The self-absorbed is an extension of number 3. Once again, they will make everything about them. Your company deserves someone better, even if just on a consultation level.
