    Default experiences in having a good friend as your booker?

    i got this offer from a good friend of mine. im still not sure if i should do it or not.
    anyone in a situation like this and if so able to provide some pros/cons?
    I'm just a girl, standing in front of a boy, asking him to love her.

    Pros :
    • cool conditions of working
    • booze
    • he will trust you
    • you can trust him (about payment)

    Cons :

    • Money and friendship are not usually 2 things you wanna deal with at the same time

    I'd go for it.

    The con listed above will be a recipe for disaster in my opinion.

    thing is that im a really nice guy and i know, that if a party doesnt pay off id suggest him to not pay me the price i asked him to and lower it. my fear is that he could get used to it. this would be the only reason not to do it. gonna think about it.
    and if i wont have him as my booker he could still be my hooker

    Meaning you would pay him ?

    So the solution is right here :
    He books you, you play. As a payment, he accepts to be your hooker for the night. Problem solved.

    OR You can always except full payment/amount decided before for the gig from him and if you feel you under performed or didn't get the draw that was expected, you could give him some money back. That way he knows to always pay you the full amount, no questions about it.
