    Cutting toxic people out of your life can be difficult sometimes, especially if it’s a family member or close friend. Unfortunately, we outgrow people and cutting them off is the only thing you can do. Surrounding yourself with people on the same journey as you and people who believes in what you are doing is critical when you are on your entrepreneur path. Great interview, thanks for the share!
