What happens when friends and family are not supportive of your business efforts? It can be rather surprising to find out that they don't understand what you are doing, or think you're crazy to be doing it.
That's when it becomes important to build up a circle of contacts who will provide the support you need. They can be other business owners, clients or people you meet who are on board with your vision.
As you build your business, prepare for changes in your personal life as well as your professional one. Accept that these transitions are normal and that you are not the only one experiencing them. It's part of the transition process that most of us have to experience in order to connect with our purpose and express ourselves in the world.
