Saying no to a friend (NOT DATING RELATED)
I find myself in a awkward situation.
I run a fairly active meetup here in Dallas. We don't really have any sort of mission statement apart from people meeting others and exploring the city. Pretty much I put up events that I think will be fun, unique or a good way to hang out, as well as a monthly happy hour (cause drinks always help). It's been going on for five years now, with me having taken over 3 years ago. People seem pleased with it, and most of the events have good attendance.
A friend recently started her own travel website, where she and her partner give out tips about how to travel cheap, though behind a paywall. Yesterday she told me she had a great idea for an event, and I was hoping it wouldn't have something to do with her business. Sure enough it did.
She wants to do a happy hour where she and her partner "Give out" 7 tips about how to travel for almost free (While pimping their website I'm sure). Her idea is 30 minutes of socializing, followed by their powerpoint presentation, followed by more socializing. It basically sounds like a timeshare presentation to me and I feel it doesn't really jive with what the group is about. Not to mention I don't want members thinking I'm using the meetup to spam them.
So how do I basically tell a friend that the meetup is more important than helping her business?
