You’ve Got to Do What You’ve Got to Do

It’s rather a bummer when you realize you really don’t have collaborators or ‘partners’ as much as you thought you did for your business. You realize this when it becomes clear that they are almost never there for you and you really don’t have any support – even when you are trying to support them. You begin to feel like an old shoe.


Keep it Real

The thing is that you still have to take care of your business whether or not there is support. That is if you care about it. I can imagine that realizing nobody is there for you really takes some of the joy out of having a business where you thought you had a partner. So really don’t let it stop you from your progress when this person fails you repeatedly.

You do have to wonder – if this person is spoiled, entitled, or just plain selfish? Maybe he is telling you he is not interested in the business anymore. If he doesn’t have the decency to discuss this with you and just leaves you hanging, then you should definitely bring it up. Get it all out on the carpet. Maybe it is just his ego where he can only act on his own demands.

Somehow he feels intimidated when you make a suggestion and his ego won’t allow him to lower himself even to help you when all you are doing is trying to help him. It’s a pretty sickly premise for having a “partnership” If you can’t even discuss some basics that will improve the business.

While you may not be in a position to just walk away and forget about him – shouldn’t be hard since he is never really there anyway. However as they say if you can’t change something all you can do is change the way you deal with it. So decide which way you want to take the situation. Stay and try to make the best of it. Accept that he will probably not change.

Or not – just let it go. Pick up your marbles and go home. Find another partner or even a new business. Of course do make an effort to resolve your issues on your way out the door. Make it clear why you feel you need to do something different.

How Much Will it Cost You if You Refuse to Spend Any Money?

It is a known fact that people like to get something for nothing. They love the words ‘Free’, “Special Offer’, ‘Sale’ or anything that will give them a break. After all with costs constantly rising for everything including basic necessities, and the fact that money doesn’t seem to grow at the same rate, we need a break.

free!

However, there is an unfortunate phenomenon that is apparent when it comes to business. Particularly for ‘freebie seekers’ they will gladly put their hand out and get whatever they can for nothing. However these are the very same people who absolutely resent even a mention of a small investment of money (or sometimes even time) to develop their business. They so just don’t get it.

It seems logical that if someone is being given a ‘leg up’ by receiving free resources to help them start out, that they would feel that they should build on that and invest even a small amount if that is all they have. What is often apparent though is that they will shoot themselves in the foot by absolutely refusing to contribute to their own business development. Their mantra is ‘you said it was free’.

Sure, if you don’t have it you don’t have it. It is absolutely true that while you may not have cash saved up to use for your business, if you really want to make your business work, you will find money that you already have that you could put to better use than you are. It is all a matter of priorities.

There are so many things we could do without to generate some extra money if we are serious about our business. There are also ways you can make a little money to save for expenses. Most people wouldn’t go so far as to go through garbage dumpsters to collect plastic and cans to make a few dollars, but there are those that will. They are not always homeless or poverty stricken people, but some that are just enterprising and they really value a dollar. They feel they are also doing good for the environment. Two great motivations.

You probably don’t need to go that far – just realize that those pennies add up to dollars. If you are not too proud to use coupons or buy ‘off’ brands that are cheaper you can start saving money right there and put it aside for a business fund. If you sit down and ask yourself if a movie is more important to you than the future of your business, sometimes the business will win. If not then it is possible you really don’t want or deserve to have your own business.
