I've been in startup, development mode for past 2 years almost. The first prototype did not work as planned and I recently have started rewriting. I am fully committed, I dedicate all my time into this project.
My parents are making a fuss, saying I should give up this project, saying that it's taking too long.
I explained to them it's not something that simple to be finished in short amount of time. However, they are accusing me that I am making excuses to not get into graduate school or get a job.
About jobs, I had few interviews before, and applied to several places but did not get any job offers. So I had no other choice but to commit myself to this startup.
This is a one man start up....but seems like stress from the project is not enough, I have to be exposed to my ultra conservative parent's opposition.
What would you do? Have you faced any opposition from your family members? I know this is a business site, but I feel like human resource management on a fundamental level is a good skill to have.
