Do you have family who are unsupportive of your business?
“When will you get a real job?”
“How's your hobby coming along?”
They don't understand it's your passion to make art.
They're not aware that there's a growing demand for handmade products in the market.
They don't have faith in you and they don't believe it's a viable and sustainable, long-term career path.
You may be fortunate to have family who've had exposure to owning their own business and completely support your every step. Entrepreneurship is the best thing ever.
But for some of us, our family has been earning college degrees, scoring corporate jobs and making steady monthly pay checks with benefits.
They've never experienced working for themselves.
Their upbringing and lifestyle makes it hard for them to understand why you'd ever choose to become a “starving artist”.
Here's what happened to me.
