My mother is reaching 55, and she raises ideas for start-ups every now and then.
I am a software developer and I'm used to rapid prototyping, so I keep urging her to just go ahead a do it! I believe in agile test-tweak iterations to get to a viable business.
My mother owned a small business that got into difficulties in the 2008 recession. She filed bankruptcy and started working as a salaried sales woman in a big company.
She doesn't love her job, and she keeps talking about the good old days when she was her own boss. On the other hand, she's very afraid of opening a new business because she's afraid to fail again.
I want my mother to be happy and earn money doing what she loves.
I keep telling her 'go for it', I research her ideas, I offer mine and think of a business plan... But then she raises so many drawbacks and forgets about the whole thing for another few weeks.
I'm getting tired of hearing all her ideas over and over again, and investing so much energy to help her achieve them, and again and again seeing her do nothing.
How can I make her just go for it and achieve her dreams?
Thank you all!
