Do want to start a business but don't have support from friends or family? If so, you're not alone.

Many entrepreneurs face the difficult task of getting much-needed support from those closest to them. This support can be critical for success: receiving encouragement from the people you love and respect the most can go a long way towards helping you achieve your goals.

In some instances entrepreneurs get support, but that support is only temporary: if the business isn't successful in a certain amount of time, that support begins to wane. people will begin to question if you're doing the right thing. others will suggest you quit and get a real job. Other entrepreneurs get support no at all and must go it alone.

Both cases can be demoralizing for entrepreneurs.

When in this situation, it's important for entrepreneurs to remember one thing:

Getting others to support your business aspirations can take more than simply telling them what you want to do.

You must use psychology.

This course will provide the following lessons:

  • Discover the top reasons family won't support your entrepreneur dreams and how to overcome them

  • How to view things from the perspective of your family and how to use that insight to your advantage

  • How to change your mindset of family members who won't support your dreams

Like any other endeavor, getting the results you want takes careful planning and preparation. This course provides the tools to help you get the support of the most resistant family and friends.

By using the tools presented in this course, you could be one step closer to getting the support and encouragement you desperately desire.

Who this course is for:

  • anyone wanting to start a business
  • people who have started a business but aren't getting the support from family they desire.
