If you have a business or you have a service you're rendering.
Step out of your circle of family and friends and market your goods/skills outside of that cycle.
Your family wants to patronize you on the low. But that breakthrough client/customer you're praying for is out there waiting for you to knock on his door, or be bold enough to contact him.
He's not on your WhatsApp status!
Don't enjoy doing business with friends and family. That's comfort zone.
You can't be strategic with family. And except you have very good friends that understand that business and friendship are two different things. Your friends want you to continue to give them ridiculous discounts until Jesus comes.
Find that courage. Go out there. Continue to knock on doors until one opens for you.
