What’s the hardest thing about making money at home?
Is it the government red tape? The rejection? The lack of experience? The painful mistakes?
As someone who has been making money at home for a long time, and showing other people how to do the same thing, I would have to say it’s none of those things.
In my experience, the hardest part trying to make money at home is all the people who you love and respect trying to tear you down.
As sure as I’m writing this article there will be people in your family, your circle of friends and especially in your job who will do whatever they can to bring you down.
Why do they do this?
Is it because they are mean, cruel and hate you?
No. Usually, your friends ad loved ones are just scared.
Here’s what I mean by that:
In many cases, people will try to stop your progress (probably unintentionally) because when you “make it” in what you’re doing, they will start to realize they need to be doing more for themselves.
They all want what you have and are going after, but most people lack the drive and courage to go for it.
And so, if you make it, then they will realize there is no reason in the world why they shouldn’t make it, too.
This is very important to realize.
Because I can guarantee you right now — the second you decide to make money at home and start doing the things that decision entails (like staying up late and on weekends getting things done, not going out as much, and not being interested in the same things your non-entrepreneur friends and family members are interested in), you will be a target. People will try to tear you down.
Just make sure you don’t take it personally, and don’t argue with anyone.
You can’t let anyone get to you like that. Just keep on doing what you need to do.
Keep working your business, learning about selling and marketing and keep doing the things everyone else is either too scared or too “good” to do.
