Your friends and family don’t support you because they don’t trust in what you’re doing. Show them results and let the action speak for itself. Then, those people will come to you. And you probably didn’t even ask for it (or expect it) at all.

While going that way invite people to watch your journey, so that the only thing you’re asking of them is their attention, not more. The responsibility for the success of your business is on you. The duty is yours. If you’re lacking support find the environment that gives you support or work harder and gain exposure by showing up - every day.
Why are you so quick to support someone you don’t know, who has plenty of money already, but you can find a million reasons not to support someone we know?
Remember when you support a small business, you are helping families feed their kids and pay their mortgage, not adding a few more zeros to a celebrity’s bank account.
To you, if you have a friend owning a small business:
Rihanna releases a lip gloss, you buy it. Michael Jordan puts out some new trainers, you buy it. Dr. Dre has new headphones, you buy it. Oprah promotes weight loss programs, you jump (if you can) on board. Beyoncé has a concert, you spend $ 250 on a ticket.

It was a week where I felt at my best in terms of productivity and I had some reward time when I went to see Nile Rodgers and CHIC in Berlin, in the only concert in Germany.
As usual, I’m letting the worker and CEO of stolenvoice speak.
