Starting a Business? Why can’t my family support me?

Starting a business is challenging to say the least. When we begin working towards starting a business we must plan accordingly for all business matters such that we can continually see success.  A series of collective wins boosts moral and hope changes to confidence. Maintaining a supportive group around us is often overlooked when starting a business. One of the biggest questions I often get asked by people in a startup or starting a business involves “Why do people not support me?”.  More specifically “Why does my family not support me?”.  A lot of time the issue arises from the spouse who they themselves fear the possibility of failure. The question we should be asking is “Why do we need our family and loved ones to support us?”. We should in theory not need this support from the external but only from the internal.

How does fear play a role with support?

Fear is an interesting part of human nature. We fear things that we need not fear at all. Our mind plays out a created scenario in a our head and the obsession of replaying it in our head creates a self limiting habit that destroys our opportunities for success. I have spent many coach sessions working with people to adjust their mind set such that new habits are created that do not rely on the support of others.

Why is good communication critical:

In the following video, I review an email by a viewer asking me to help in explaining how to deal with family and lack of support when starting a business. My walk through explains many aspects of the situation and how to deal with it but also how to make a complete mind change.  How to deal with the fear and how use communication to make things better. The way to continually grow support is by actively growing our communication skills. Without proper communication many issues will arise including trust and jealousy.

What is Business Coaching

The potential of your business is based on your potential. In a business setting we arguably fight the good fight based on our skill set in the industry we are in and based on the business know how. We typically attempt to achieve massive goals but miss critical steps in the process.  As problems start to grow turning to friends and family for help may not be the best option. Coaches and Mentors are a great opportunity for most business owners to re-center themselves, re-focus and start finding solutions to their problems.

Coaching usually involves an issue or two that needs correcting. This would be any aspect of the business. Our typical clients will present an issue that is causing a massive disturbance, opportunities will be explained with tools and techniques to achieve the possible outcome.

Mentorship typically involves clients who require long term assistance through their growth. This usually occurs when the business needs to grow, either at the beginning or after a massive failure. We work with clients on executing the strategies needs to succeed. As the client improves skill sets in the certain areas we focus on more areas to develop the critical thinking needed for the business owner to be able to succeed long term.
