Today's question...
"I feel like the life I knew is falling apart before my eyes and my next steps are critical. I would deeply appreciate guidance and support.
Here is what's happening. I'm a twenty-year-old college student starting an online business, and last week I flew to New York City behind my parents' backs for a business event (with my own money) and they found out and decided to withdraw all financial support. I called my mom to apologize and she exploded, telling me that starting a business was ruining my life and destroying my relationships.
She said she would rather I take a semester off than work on a business while she is paying for my school tuition. So, I stayed up all night thinking and decided to take a semester off to pursue my business.
Then I called her today to tell her and she exploded in the other direction, telling me that if I drop out of school I will be putting a dagger into her heart. She tried to make me promise I will stay in school
It looks like at this point she will let me stay in school and work on my business, but now I genuinely think the best thing might be to take off a semester and work only on my business.
I don't want to give in to a compromise that isn't in my best interests, but I also don't want to tear my family apart.
How do I choose myself in this situation?"
Listen to James as he gives his real life advice.
