noun: reciprocity
  1. the practice of exchanging things with others for mutual benefit, especially privileges granted by one country or organization to another.
So do you have reciprocity in your life? I do you a favor and then you do me one?   I thought I did. I spent years encouraging and promoting friends as they "grew" and expanded their businesses.  I put contacts and opportunities I saw in their path and pushed them to use them. 

Now I have a new venture of my own and asked two people I most trusted to endorse it.  One did. (Thanks Kat Simpson of ) and one didn't (nameless, you notice?) 

Don't be that dork person - the Lame Person ala Rob Lowe in his new tv commercials.  If someone endorses you or promotes your business, return that favor somehow.   Don't say "oh I can't" and then promote someone else offering a lower quality service. 

And I've said this before - Be Careful who you follow and/or endorse.  Watch their public behavior and how they treat people that can't do them favors.   It's the best indicator of a genuine person

So sorry this has happened to you, Beth. You have been there for so many, taught so many and defended several. It is not fair that some folks are so selfish. It sure does not feel good to be blown off by someone you trusted enough you asked to help. Please know there are many who know you who respect you and would do anything for you.
