"You absolutely must have a business plan. Make one, and if it's not on that plan, don't do it." - everyone.
"So I've got this plan, but I keep getting asked to do stuff not on it." - me.
"Turning away business is never a good idea. Don't be so slavish to the plan, anything you can do to make money is fair game." - everyone.
"I'm almost entirely out of money." - me.
"Well what did you expect? You didn't stick to the plan!" - derp.
