You have a great idea for a business, and you can’t wait to share it with your friends, family and loved ones because you need their support and advice?
Is this you? I understand, that happens for all of us, but here are 3 reasons why this might be bad, like REALLY bad idea.
1. They love you and want the best for you. This means that they want to support you in whatever you’re doing. So when you present the idea to your closest ones, they might get very excited, and want to support you with a lot of couraging words and advice.
They might say: “that’s an amazing idea, you should do it!” or “you are so good at what you do, you’ll definitely be a success!”
So why is this downright harmful to your business? Because they don’t have a clue whether your market thinks this idea is something that’s missing or even has the potential to become a high-selling business concept.
Just because your idea seems brilliant, or you have a deep competency and knowledge within this particular subject, it doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s going to results in a successful company.
Luckily there are ways to figure out and design your business in ways that actually sell! I have created a 5 parts free video series to figure this thing out. Click here to access the videos.
2. They don’t want to see you succeed. This sounds horrible, but it might be the case. This can have so many underlying reasons, some are connected to plain jealousy, and some might have to do with the changing family dynamics. Or maybe they just don’t believe in you.
Either way, when you are stepping into the unknown, the last thing you need is to have people around you who continuously tell you your dreams and plans are a waste of time.
3. They haven’t done it themselves. Many people LOVE to give advice, but when you are building your business, regardless if you are doing it in your areas of expertise, or in some completely new area – it’s really crucial to only listen to those who have done it, and have got to the place where you want to get. Anyone else’s advice is just opinions, and they don’t do much good for your progress.
This is one of the reasons we get so hands-on with our clients’ businesses: from the moment they enroll into our growth accelerator, to the moment they are finished for the particular development step, they share the ups’n’downs mainly with our coaches, and not so much with their loved ones.
The amazing thing is this: once they start getting the momentum, and they see how their ideas form, and clients start to roll in, their loved ones also start taking notice… some will congratulate, and some will not want to acknowledge the success.
Either way, our fierce women leaders are fully focused on their missions and don’t need that external approval to step up and lead their game.
