Have you noticed that whenever you change, you’re sure to upset someone close to you? Usually someone who’s resisting moving forward themselves. It could be a spouse, a parent, or a friend.
It happened to me with my second husband. I was an aspiring journalist when we met, sorely underpaid, but with lots of free time. Three months after the wedding, I decided to focus on building a profitable business.
He didn’t like this ‘new me’ one bit. It eventually led to our divorce.
At first I was crushed. But when I started interviewing six-figure women for my second book, it hit me.
To go to the next level financially, I had to surround myself with people who were cheering me on, not trying to rein me in.
