Hello To All Business Women,
When it comes to having success in a home based business one of the most important things is believing in yourself and your business. So how do you find a way to believe in yourself when other people like friends and family don’t?
One of the hardest things to deal with when working your home based business is when a friend or a family member doubts your or your business. Sometimes it’s even enough to make people give up on their dreams and quit all together.
While we all want the support of our friends and family it’s important to know that just because they don’t believe in you or your dreams doesn’t mean they still can’t come true.
Whether it’s your best friend, your cousin Glenn, your Grandma, Spouse, Co-workers or parents the sting of having someone you love not believe in your dream is hard to deal with. However it can be over come.
The first thing that home based business owners might want to do is have a sit down talk with their friends, family and loved ones. Let them know that this is a choice that you have made and you’re sticking with it, be firm.
Let them know that you are going to give this all you have and that you believe in the business you have chosen to be a part of and you would love to have their support. Most people who really care about you will be more than happy to stick by you once they know that this is a decision that you’ve made and you’re sticking by it.
Keep in mind that some of the people in your life may have had a negative experience with a home based business before. That will no doubt play a part in how they feel about your new business. Don’t let it get you down.
There are a lot of reasons why people fail in home based businesses. Perhaps your friend or family member was just part of a bad company. Maybe they didn’t give it enough time and energy to really see any results. Whatever the reason, you need to know that just because some people have not been successful before does NOT mean that you can’t or won’t be.
Above everything else you want your family to know that you love them and respect their advice. (Even if you’re not going to follow it, haha) There is no need to get upset or have an argument just to defend your business.
The best thing to do when someone you love just won’t support you in your decision is just to work hard and prove them wrong. Nothing makes a negative person eat their words like RESULTS. Trust me, when the people you love see you making money…they’ll come around!
