One of the mistakes people make is they misjudge their warm market. But your friends and families are for your success for the most part. I know there are always exceptions to the rule, and maybe I am naive, but think about it. If you were drowning in the water and you cried out for help your best friend or your favorite relative would try and help, or else I am living in a perfect world. At any rate I would at least feel comfortable to ask.
