It’s the good friend who starts to turn on you. Having had this happen to me twice I began to look inward to see if it was something about my personality that was causing this.

Again I don’t like to name drop my company in these articles so I will just say that I am in upcoming film studio with a focus on web. It took a lot of work to get this far; and to be honest still of hell of a lot of work to go.
