Handling the “Haters”

Oh my goodness. What a freaking roller coaster!

Last week I had my best week in business. Ever. Then on Monday morning, I get a “hater”. You know, that person who has been disappointed, or is frustrated and skeptical… or just plain mean.

Regardless of their motivations, when someone comes at you like this, it can really throw you for a loop. And make you question if you’re really cut out for this whole entrepreneurship thing.

This is normal.

In every business I’ve ever run, my biggest accomplishments were ALWAYS followed by comments, “feedback” and outright verbal blastings from people who saw it as their job to take me down a peg or two.

If you dare to grow into your greatness, and publicly share with the world your abilities, your accomplishments, and your aspirations – you are going be targeted by people who make themselves feel better by shooting others down.

Below is a screen shot of the conversation I had with a disgruntled person on Facebook. Her reaction was to the event posting on Facebook of most popular teleclass I’ve ever taught, “10 Things to do to Triple Your Income in 2015”.

If and when the naysayers come into your life, I hope this example helps you find a graceful way to handle one of the less pleasant aspects of success!

Founder Mary Cravets started Simply Get Clients because she saw small business owners complicating growing their businesses. Or falling victim to the "build it and they will come" myth. So she developed the simple structure to cut through all the noise of social media, "experts", online funnels, advertising and more to focus on the central problem of business owners: getting more clients. And you know what? There is NOT a one-size-fits-all solution.
