Opinion Needed

Hey gals. So, I am a Designer for Origami Owl. & Consultant for Thirty-One. My friends have been pressuring me to get them items at my cost not retail. How can I nicely tell them that doing this will not benefit me and its an additional source of income for my family. Specifically Lilly's medical expenses and equipment. i feel like if I say something to them that i am being selfish but at the same time I think it's wrong of them to ask that.

Thoughts?

    I would explain to them that you started your business to make money for your family, and selling to them at your cost isn't going to do that. Let them know that they are welcome to become a consultant (under you of course!) and would then get items at cost, but that you can't afford to make exceptions for them. You could also consider doing a friends and family discount once a quarter or once every 6 months or something like that. Give them a small percentage off, but one where you still make money.
