Today’s question is….
I’m really trying in my business, but how do I deal with an unsupportive spouse?
This can be a doozy, so some questions to ask yourself –
Does my spouse support me in most areas?
What other areas does he or she not support me?
In my gut, what do I feel this lack of support is based around?
Have I tried other “things” spent other “money” and not been successful? IF so, why was I not successful? Be honest. Did I really go all in, give it everything?
Have their been multiple things?
Does my spouse understand how my business works? Understand Network Marketing? Is it just a lack of education?
Have you asked to sit down and go through it with an open mind to at least understanding it?
Robert Kyosaki and Donald Trump wrote – Why We Want You to be Rich: Two Men, One Message, The Business School: For People Who Like Helping People, The Business of the 21st Century – all of these books are either about, or have chapters that profile Network Marketing in a very positive light.
Create a space where he/she can see beyond the hype and propaganda some reps put on MLM.
Robert Allen, John Gray, Brian Tracy, to name a few big names – all involved in Network Marketing as distributors for a company.
Make a decision, and I mean a REAL decision. Decide if you are all in, and then schedule a family meeting.
Sit down, and share your goals, your reasons, your heartfelt desires and let them know what you would most like from them, how they can support you, and what you would like to do, as a family and a “team” when you start making money.
No hype, no BS, just real, raw and committed. Then, listen. Answer questions and DO NOT get defensive.
Most often, the break down is in communicating effectively. He said/she said and everyone assumes. Lots of things.
Share what you intend to do, write out a business plan that’s based around your actions and activities. That’s all you can control. But, and here is the Big BUT – be ready to commit to that plan. Don’t be a talker. Talk is cheap. Be an action taker!
I do promise you this, when you can “show them the money” – things can begin to change. Not for everyone, because with some, it’s a much deeper issue. But for most, success, in the form of monetary compensation has a way of turning the biggest of skeptics into happy believers!
