What to Do When Your Own Family Doesn’t Support You

Let me tell you something 🗣: my family and friends didn’t purchase ANYTHING from me until about 2 1/2 years of being in business.

I’d tell them how excited I was, post on social media, bring items when I visited… NOTHING 😑

They went on acting as though I didn’t even have a business. Most wouldn’t even bring it up. Avoided it like it was some type of plague.

One of my friends even bragged about going to purchase a product from a celebrity that’s way more expensive than the products I carry. When she told me, she said “I just had to support her.”😒

I was thinking “you had to support someone who doesn’t even know you?!?”

I was devastated and discouraged which is why I’m sharing this with you.

Most family and friends won’t take your “little business” seriously AND THAT’S OK. 👍🏽

This isn’t about them.🙅🏽‍♀️

This is about you and your dreams.👸🏽

Don’t let their lack of support discourage you. Many won’t support due to their own insecurities and jealousy. Others may not be in the position to support you financially BUT that does not mean you can’t make it 🙅🏽‍♀️

There are BILLIONS of people on this earth who CAN and WILL support you.

Instead of focusing on those do not support you, spend your time seeking out your tribe of people who see your vision and value. You’ll spend less time trying to convince them and more time servicing them: the winning formula 🏆
