When Did You Tell Family and Friends You Were Going into Business for Yourself?


Your friends and family are 100% on your side - but the way they express their care and support can vary widely. One thing I've learned? Not everyone shares the same cost-benefit analysis when it comes to self-employment. (That may explain why reactions to my news ranged from "That's totally awesome!!" to "Are you sure you wouldn't prefer a little more...job security?")


When did you tell family and friends you were ready to go into business for yourself, and what was their reaction? How did you go about making the Big Announcement?

When Did You Tell Family and Friends You Were Going into Business for Yourself?

Most of my closest friends knows that  I was reaching my dream, but I didn't tell them during the building of the beginning until everything was ready to start to work.

some of them feels bad ,because they think I should share and look for help.

Others think I'm selfish, but the true is that every time I was saying something about it something bad happen. in the end I did it slowly without talk until its done.

Never easy.
