My wife supports me, financially, almost entirely, since my small online business (selling second hand physical book on Amazon) suffered a disastrous sharp decline over the last couple of years or so.
I should have started something consequential online 3 or 4 yeas ago. When I still had a reasonable online income and also savings to plunder.
No more income, no more savings…not anymore.
So she supports me (and I don’t really deserve it) But due to many, many false starts in various IM ventures, she does not really believe I can make anything work online. Currently she just about tolerates the situation. And she looks at me, eyes glazing over when I mention what I am looking at the moment. So this time I have to make it work. Not just for my own peace of mind, but for my wife, who puts up with it all.
Anyone else to whom I have mentioned my online business activities to, never really grasp the point. I know this because their responses tell me they are only half tuned in to my explanation. So I simply stopped saying anything, to anyone, except for something vague like “I sell stuff online”.
