At least once a year Steve Drost invites me to his party—and every year I remind Stephen about the money that he borrowed from me back in 2009. The money that he swore up and down that he would pay back “in one week” and that if he didn’t he would promptly pay a huge penalty. I waived the penalty.
“Just pay me $500 and we’ll call it even.”
“Okay John, can I PayPal it to you?
And then I don’t hear from him for about another year.
“John I have a great investment opportunity..”
“But Steve you haven’t made good on the last one.”
I would not loan Stephen any money
I would not go into a partnership
Frankly, at this point, I won’t spend time listening to his ideas, because nothing ever comes through.
I think Steve Drost is a bad risk.
