The answer may surprise you.
The answer is “yes!” They may be ruining your business.
It takes a certain kind of person to understand that achieving big goals is possible. They have to have a certain mindset.
More than likely, your friends are not supportive, cast doubts on what you are doing or make you feel guilty for not spending time with them because you are busy building your business.
One mentor of mine told me that your network is your net worth.
I thought, “Really?”
I started looking at my network and realized that wasn’t the net worth that I wanted to have!
So I started joining masterminds, going to industry events and hiring coaches and consultants.
Before I knew it, was looking around and realized that my closest friends and mentors were all 7 and 8 figure earners.
Not surprisingly, our income was skyrocketing because we were hanging around people who were bringing us up.
Our conversations around the dinner table were not “Are you really still doing that business thing?”
Instead they were, “How big of an impact are you going to make this year? Do you want to be a New York Times Bestselling author? I think you can do it. Let me give you some contacts to help you.”
Those kinds of relationships are invaluable.
Remember that being an entrepreneur is not a solo sport.
The bottom line is that you need to surround yourself with people that will help you play at a higher level.
