    My fellow Indians will understand that majority of the Indian families, specially the middle-class ones doesn't like this whole concept of being 'Self- employed' :/ They think it's a waste of time or not a permanent income solution. Some even like to think it's only for those who are lazy and doesn't want to work hard. Hence not a respectable one at first.

    Again, 'majority' of our society strives for a secure Government job or at least wants us to be an Engineer or doctor.

    Now I'm not saying it's because they are not educated or dumb, it's just the way our society is and they do it because they don't understand it or just afraid of all the risks associated with it but hey you gotta take risks for what you believe . Nothing comes easy and where's the fun in that.

    That's why when anyone declares that he wants to be an Entrepreneur or an Internet Marketer , everyone warns us, some laugh at us and only a few believe and stay with us .

    My parents support me on this matter and I'm grateful for it . It's the relatives that don't know a Damn thing that cringes me. Hearing the same thing again and again, all the warnings and cautions I should take etc etc , you get the idea.

    How do you handle all these questions ? :/

    I know six months ago when I said I wanna go on this route to some of my friends , they just took it as joke and now 6 months and a few hundred dollars later , everyone wants me to teach them how I did it. It's like they want to do it for earning some side cash and all you have to do is just plug and play. Nobody understands all the F*****G Hard work that is associated with all this.

    This is the mentality of everyone I meet . Nowadays I don't even bother telling them that I've already earned some cash cause then I'll have to babysit them but you see I want to tell them. It gives me hope and confidence .

    I know once I start earning a huge deal, everyone will praise me, typical . It takes time though, and I'm just fed up of answering all these stupid, prejudiced questions .

    if you are so concerned about these questions then why not you join a digital marketing agency as a freelancer and work on your projects sideways. That way you can learn more and also can answer your relatives :p

    Dont give a damn about how others have to say. Just focus on what you are doing and people would fall at your feet when you get the ball rolling. I would say my friends have been very demotivating sometimes, not parents as they have kept their trust on me.

    I have been in the field for 5 yrs now and my parents are happy that I am doing something of my own. Haters will always hate as you know and that should motivate you more!!

    6 months and a few hundred bucks later? They are asking you questions because they are laughing at you behind your back.

    That is about anywhere you live in the world. If people dont understand it they think it is stupid but keep doing your thing. Think if Bill Gates had gave up where we would be.
