Don’t get us wrong, we love our gal pals. So much so we created an e-guide at Career Contessa that will help you build your ride or die girl gang. But not all of your friends are the best influences when it comes to your professional growth.
That’s not to say they wouldn’t throw you a killer bachelorette party or be there when you need a shoulder to cry on, but being aware of your friends’ priorities can help you look out for ways their behaviors are influencing your career.
We’re not telling you to ditch them because they don’t want to climb the corporate ladder as fast as you or don’t understand your startup life, but in order to reach your goals you may need to keep an eye on certain friendships.
