I already closed up shop with a startup after a year once because of the pressures she created, but I wasn`t making much money anyhow so I didn`t let it get to me.
However, I have had my new business since August, and she is already doing everything she can to force me to give up and "get a job." This business has a much higher earning potential (average job around $5k and 50% profit margin), but it is just taking time to get sales moving due to boostrapping it.
I know that this can have a big payoff if I just give it a chance, but my wife`s bad attitude and willingness to give up so soon is driving me nuts. It`s like someone constantly telling you to be a quitter.
To be fair, money is tight right now. I am working in the wee hours of the morning delivering newspapers to make sure the bills are paid, but we don`t have money for even the slightest extras. For me, it is worth delaying some gratification for a big payday down the road, but to her, all she can think about is short-term getting a paycheck now.
I already came very close to leaving her for this earlier this year because I just feel we will never agree on this subject. She is just too entrenched in employee-think, and I would rather live in a cardboard box than go back to working a day-job.
Any advice? Please?
