    Non compete while you work for someone is cool. After a separation, is not.

    Did the guy prepare to start his business while still employed or actually compete with Core Shot?

    Cuz when buddy was found out he really did get fired/ lost whatever $ or security he had working for CS, nothing theoretical on that action

    Its like the original assertion in this thread the OP was owed something for almost nothing so what he really got was nothing

    I donítÖ. What?

    Enterprise and free markets means he can fire his ass, too. Working a side hustle is fine. Making your side hustle the same business as your main hustle isnít exactly ethically ambiguous. The reverse analogy would be to have long term employees unknowingly train younger and cheaper employees to do their job before being laid off, or giving new employees stock options while expecting them to work fewer hours. It happens, but itís bullshit when it does.
    focus.

    Yeah. You can yell FUCK YOU YOU FUCKING CUNT to a stranger at the grocery store. But why? Because we are supposed to be civilized.

    PS. Had some job interviews where they said they could start tomorrow even though they had a full time job. Fuck that. Might as well confess your fentanyl addiction.
    You must be a pleasure to work for

    ďI can start tomorrowĒ is a red flag if youíre currently employed. Donít say that even if you mean it.

    Or say that, whatever. But you better have a good explanation for it. Itís like watching your new girlfriend treat her ex like total shit. ForewarningÖ..

    noncompetes are a lazy shitty way to try to assert property rights over shit that ain’t yours. If someone leaves and takes your Rolodex, you gotta case. If you are just a shitty cumshot, you don’t. Fuck no, they don’t have to buy your glory hole servicing

    So, Iíve always considered myself self employed at whatever job Iíve worked. Think of it like being a mercenary. Itís just business. I do what you pay me to do and you pay me what was negotiated including whatever benefits package is part of that. Thatís as far as it goes. I have no other obligation to my employer than that and expect nothing else from them. You can build relationships with your employer but itís not a requirement, same goes for them.

    I donít conduct my personal relationships in this manner because itís not business. Whining about anything related to business is stupid. If youíre employee quits without notice thatís the price of doing business, move on. Whining about says more about the employer than the employee even if they were shitty.

    Whining about quitting without notice is stupid. Agreed.

    Hanging your own shingle while still employed, in the same business competing for the same accounts/clients/opportunitiesÖ.. that is not generally accepted as ok by anybody who has thought about it.

    ETA: there are compelling reasons to develop a meaningful relationship beyond ďhere to get mine,Ē if only just to get a little bit more meaning out of work. Not dissimilar to team sports. What you describe is almost adversarial and that doesnít really feel like a ton of fun. But you do you I guess.

    The meaning I get out of work is the work. Helping patients directly and by facilitating the work of the surgeons is the rewarding part if you disregard the compensation. I donít care about the administration and my employer. I do care about my teammates.

    I don't really hear anybody owning a mistake they made, just moving the blame to somebody else.

    10 pages of not fixing anything.

    I fired a guy who was handing out business cards to his side business while on my clock to my customers. His business failed and I hired him back.

    He was losing his house because his wife maxed his credit cards and wasn't paying the mortgage. He told me the truth, we still talk.

    He was desperate, some people suck, some are in a bad spot.

    Listing to people can be worth the time. It might only be 30% of them but its worth it. My mistake is wasting a bunch of time on the ones who don't work out.

    Never have a business that can't withstand the loss of a few people.


    We are at a 54 year low in unemployment, if your job sucks, change it.
    If you can't get people, change your company.
    If you can't change your company, leave.

    How about that latest jobs report? I blame it on people saying "I won't work for less than it costs for rent, food, car, iPhone 15+++++++++, craft brews, Hookers-n-Blow, , etc..".
    Go that way really REALLY fast. If something gets in your way, TURN!

    Update. He and I both slept on it. I didn’t sleep. Up since 3am.

    He said he had “too much invested” in his side hustle.

    But he was honest. Didn’t steal. And looked me in the eye.

    We shook hands and he left. Such is life. And biz.

    well if he really needed his main hustle then he was a dumb ass

    its not really a " no compete " in the usual sense which is where some one sells a business and can't be in that same business for however long was agreed

    say he was fixing widgets or whatever for you in his main hustle and then fixing the same widgets in his side hustle that is a clear conflict of interest, cuz even if he wasn't directly stealing from you he was taking your business, intelectual property but obviously some people wouldn't get that as we see from the comments

    so he has to choose which he did so now he will find out much fun your job is and he might come back with his hat in his hand looking for a job in a year

    if he really wanted to do a side hustle ( now his main hustle ) he should have picked a different one

    Is there such a thing as "dumbass property"? If not... there should be.

    The best you could play the cards you had and walked away with dignity. Not sleeping is a sign of caring.

    That is being a boss, satisfying end to the thread.
