Episode 168: “How do I respond to friends and family who think this business is a scam?”

Today’s question comes from one of our clients who is attending our immersion program in Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia. Immersion is a one-on-one coaching program that is offered to a small group of entrepreneurs who want to take their businesses to the next level. We usually offer Immersion as an add-on program after one of our Masterminds. For more information, click Here.

Steve, from Australia, wants to know how to respond to friends and family who think this business is a scam?

I explain that I dealt with this a lot when I was first getting started.

Even my own parents thought that I was throwing away my future by pursuing a career in affiliate marketing.

After sharing my excitement at the possibilities, but finding negativity from loved ones, I learned to keep quiet about my progress and keep my successes to myself.  To some extent, I maintain that practice today.

My suggestion would be to keep your business dealings to yourself; unless you have a spouse or a partner to whom you are accountable.  In that case, my suggestion would be to bring them to a live event so that they can see what your business really is all about.

MOBE hosts live events throughout the year all over the globe.  For information about Live Events, click Here.
