A spouse who is not supportive of home business can cause it to fail. Some spouses do this on purpose while others are not even aware they are doing it.
Here are three ways a spouse can sabotage your Internet business and cause you to quit without reaching your goals.
1. Is not supportive. Developing a successful Internet business takes a lot of support.
Because you have such a large learning curve you need someone cheering you on to help overcome the frustration you will no doubt feel. A supportive spouse can do wonders for your psychic as well as help keep you motivated when you feel like quitting.
They can even do more than just be supportive. They can actually give you a kick in the butt when you really need it. If you have a supportive spouse consider yourself fortunate.
2. Interrupts your work day. For whatever reasons people who work at home on the Internet are not viewed as the same as people who go to an off line job.
I guess that is true because of how easy access is to people working at home. Interruptions can cause frustration as well as rob you of important business building time.
If you are working your make money online business on a part time basis every minute is important when you are working. If your spouse is interrupting you for various things you need to put an end to that and establish office hours when you are not to be interrupted.
3. Asks you to do things when you should be working. This is another reason why you need to have established working hours.
It is too easy for your spouse to ask you to help around the house when you know you should be working. They may want you to go to a movie or do something with them when you should be working.
Many people like to work their own Internet business because they get to set their own schedule. However for this plan to actually work you need to set a real schedule of when you are working.
Make sure everyone in your house knows what that working schedule is and you are not interrupted. Then take the extra step of actually scheduling time to do things around the house or outside of it.
Hopefully your spouse is not sabotaging your Internet home business. If they are there as an excellent chance you can correct that by setting home office hours and establishing boundaries.
If you will do this the odds of your home internet business being successful will increase greatly. And of course when you start to make money at home your spouse will become your biggest supporter.
