When you succeed, they will say…
“Well, look at who his granddad is. They all have money. He had everything handed to him.”
“She had nothing to do with it. My cousin does all the real work there.”
“Must be nice to have all that money without doing anything for it.”
“Yeah, she was doing it all wrong. She should never have been in business.”
“That was a stupid idea for this town.”
“I told him it wouldn’t work.”
“I could have done that better.”
No matter what you do, they will talk about you. And sometimes it will hurt.
I don’t have an answer. I just want you to know it’s inevitable.
