I have been unemployed since July and received a small severance package that ran out on 10/31/06. I am collecting unemployment benefits while continuing to find employment. I have signed up to become a financial coach with Primerica Financial Services. My wife thinks I need to work a 9-5 job with benefits. Why does she think this? And why doesn’t she support me?
Primerica is a difficult business to be involved in. The income is not guaranteed and you really have to be good at self-motivation in order to make it work. Since she’s your wife, she either doesn’t believe that you have the proper mental capacity in order to make this business work for you (it’s extremely difficult) or she’s concerned that you will not be making a large amount of income for several months.
Talk to her and find out why she’s not supportive. This business is hard enough when you have support of loved ones. It’s even harder without it.
