What To Say To People Who Don't Get It

You know how it goes…

You’re super excited about your new coaching business and you feel like you could take on the world.

You’ve got a shiny new website, you’re building your list, and maybe you’ve even got a few clients. (Congrats!)

You’ve tried explaining what you do to your friends, your parents, and your old co-workers, but they don’t really understand.

Then you start noticing some not-so-nice comments.

That sounds fun, but when are you gonna get a real job?

It must be nice to be able to play on Facebook all day.

I wish I had that much free time.

You feel angry. You know your business didn’t happen overnight. You know you worked your little booty off to get to where you are today.

You stumble over your words, trying to find something clever to say in response, but in the end you feel completely ridiculous.

So, besides smiling and politely thanking them for their input, what can you say to people who don’t get it?

In this video, I’ll share:

  • Why this conversation isn’t really as important as you think
  • The one secret you must remember to stay focused (despite the haters)
  • Exactly what I say to the weirdos who don’t get it
  • What other successful business owners say when met with blank stares

Click below to watch (or listen):

Now it’s your turn! In the comments, tell us what YOU say to the weirdos who don’t get it. 

I know this is something we all struggle with, so I’d love to get a helpful conversation going on in the comments. Let’s pull our brains together and make this an awesome resource for responding to those tough questions.

I guess I say something along the lines of, it’s my thing, not yours and you don’t have to like it. (and secretly I think… see you in two years when you’re still in that day job you hate and I’m still following my heart ;-) )
