Are you frustrated because your family and friends are not supporting you in your new business? Have you asked them to try your products and they said no? Are they unwilling to take a look at your business opportunity or join you? If the answer is yes then I want to introduce you to the concept of relational accounts. Once you understand what they are, and then begin to make deposits into them, you will find that many of these problems will suddenly start to disappear.
When you make the decision to become an entrepreneur one of two things is going to happen to you. You are either going to reap the rewards or pay the price of the life that you have lived up until the moment when you start your business. What does that mean? It means that if you've generally been a good person and gone out of your way for other people, when you approach them they will be willing to help. If you have invested in those relationships over time and nourished them, you will reap the rewards by them supporting you in your new business.
On the other hand, if you haven't invested into the relationships you have with the people around you, you will most likely struggle when you ask them for support. People who have lived a more self-centered life and not been willing to help usually pay the price of that life when they start their new business.
The good news is that no matter how bad things have been you can begin to change things starting right now. Start to look at every person in your life and imagine you have this relational bank account between the two of you.
When you're doing good things for other people and investing into that relationship it's like you are making a small deposit into that relational account. Every time go out of your way to help someone, show them genuine care and concern and value that relationship you are continuing to make deposits.
When you start your new business and ask that same person to help and support you, it's like you are attempting to make a withdraw. You may ask them to help you by trying your product, taking a look at your opportunity or referring you to someone they know.
The hard thing to face for many people is that if they haven't made any deposits over time into that relational account, when they try to make the withdraw they can't because the account is empty.
The good news is that if you start focusing on making these small deposits every day in the relational accounts of the people you know, you can start to tip the scales back in your direction.
Over time, the same people who were not willing to help you once they see that you really do care about them will actually be willing to support you. It won't happen overnight, but if you understand and commit to this process it will help you tremendously in your business.
In the video above I give you some tips on how you can accelerate this process and recognize what relationships you may have been neglecting. Be sure to share this training with the people on your team so they can leverage the power of this concept.
