When your successful you’ll attract haters and admirers alike. Different face same motives. To bask in your sun and get some success themselves. You see it all the time. When rappers get famous they get hit up by their long family member asking them how they are doing after they didn’t give a shot about you. Same with “friends”. And girls. They start smiling at you more and are a hell of a lot more friendly.
Though the girls thing I can accept as if I was a girl I wouldn’t want to date a loser either but the family and friends? Irks me. How do you not let it make you feel bitter and kill your good mood? The more successful you get he more you will attract these type of people. Just keep winning and move it along? If they want to hop on the train let them?

Wow yea... I think this is a great business idea, except it may slightly violate the commandment of Control. Do you have a plan for tackling that in the execution stage?

Andy may be able to help you with the AdWords aspect, and you should be off and running!

Perhaps focus on having a business idea and actually executing on it before you worry about shit like this.
Thanks for the input! Would love to hear more of your thoughts!
Seriously though if your not going to add to this post don’t comment on it. Now gtfo

From the rubbish you write on here it’s unlikely that you’ll ever have to worry about it anyway, good luck on your journey, 35 will come quicker than you realise ;)

I don’t advocate it for anyone, it’s an opinion based on what you write. You have every chance of making it, the sooner you write less, have less opinions, and actually get started as an entrepreneur the better. My first comment was all you need to know about dealing with fake people. When you have a business, start making money, you’ll know how to deal with fake people.

Because unlike a rapper or a sports star who’s clinger ons are looking for some rub or kick back from the persons new found fame, as an entrepreneur the fake people that you encounter are the ones that want to leverage off your business without providing value themselves. I deal with it every day. It’s not something that can be taught on a forum, it comes down to learning how to communicate with people, see what they really want from you when they approach you, see what’s in it for you, and wether it’s worth working with them or not. I’ve built relationships with people through business that started out more of a value add for them than me, but I judged that they were good people and worth building a relationship with, even if what they bought to the table initially wasn’t a lot.
And just the same I’ve done business with people that I soon learnt was a waste of my time. It’s a big variety.

Get your idea, start your business, and be an entrepreneur. Learn all this by doing.

I should add, if your worried about friends and family trying to sponge off you, it’s easy. They see your business grow, see you drive a nice car, live in a nice area, dress better than ever, so they think they can get a hand out? Just tell them sorry, all my moneys tied up in business and investments. Job done :thumbsup:

The job is to stay cool down under pressure

I mean keep your swagger cool.

Do these 3 works: Smile, Wave & Say "Thank you"

When you are doing better and if they hate on you for being successful, it means you are doing something right project for yourself.

Your "friends" should support you from the beginning. Same with your family, if they don't, then there is no reason for them to feel you owe them anything (which you don't) Everyone has a chance to make it in life, and if you do care about them, try to give them knowledge instead of material things.

Post it in the execution diaries man!

Seriously though, your pulling the cart before the horse, build a business first.

It's like me saying where do i invest 10 million dollars, when i have 35 cents in my bank account.
