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 Startup Coaching

Your startup deservers the bests possible opportunity to succeed. Being successful means achieving your goals. The ups and downs cause us to be unsure and un-centered. When this occurs mistakes are bound to happen. If you have an idea and you believe you will succeed then you need to give yourself the opportunity to succeed. Feeling like superman and trying to run the whole startup without assistance can prove to be detrimental to the cause. Coaching and mentoring assists in developing the proper strategy for success to occur. When the strategy is organized and well planned out we are able to implement the processes to see the success be achieved.

A typical coach call will involve different problems that exist within the current strategy. It will look at the opportunities that exist and how to take advantage of them.  This hour is spent passing the current hurdles that an entrepreneur is facing.

The mentorship program involves long term development of the skill sets required for success. As issues arise, the mentor is able to provide the tools and techniques required for critical decisions. The mentee learns over time to grow a successful startup such that they can replicate the process with more startups. The strategy of a startup is critical to its success and something that requires complete dedication.
