Tough question, right?
And I’m sure everyone has struggled with this as some point in their life.
I know I did.
Back when I started my web business, in 2005, I saw how successful it could be with a little work and focus.
So, I marched up to my mom and said, “Ma, I know everyone wants me to go to law school, but I’m thinking of skipping it to start a web business.”
At the time, I was slinging celebrity gossip and selling ads on my blog. Imagine what the mom thought about that.
*Trigger the steam out of the mom-pieces ears.*
“Wait, so you’re going to make fun of celebrities instead of going to law school? Absolutely not. I paid for all the LSAT prep classes…”
So, what did I do?
Here’s the Full Story…
My mom was against my business endeavor, but I kept at it. And throughout 2006, the blogging and gossip thing took off.
By the time I graduated college in December 2006, it was official. I was skipping law school, and by February 2007, I earned more than $20,000 in one month from ad revenue.
It helped that I got a ton of traffic, and was basically a “celebrity gossip celebrity.”
(Heck, I even remember the time I had Kim Kardashian on the phone for like an hour to talk about some store she launched in California).
So the question is:
How did I go from dealing with family and friends who didn’t support me…
…to launching a wildly successful business?
What did I do? How did I deal with people who, at the time, were seemingly trying to “keep me down?”
That’s why I filmed this new video.
In this video I share a simple technique I use to defuse distrust in friends and family.
Then, when you’re done watching the video, I want you to share a time when a friend or family member didn’t support you.
What did you do? How did you deal with it?
Surprisingly enough, we all handle these situations differently, and how we do it has the potential to help out other people who experience these same problems.
So, leave a comment now.
And if you’re dealing with other haters (not family members), I’ve got a video for that too.
