If you've researched the Dustless Blasting business for any length of time, you know that it's a great opportunity. But what if your family is not on the same page?
Here is our best advice for getting your family onto the Dustless Blasting bandwagon.
1.) Get your wife involved
One of the best ways to get your wife on-board with this business is to involve her in it. As you're researching the business, make sure to share things with her that excite you. Ask her opinion on things. Researching the business as a team will help her see the potential in the same light that you do. Doing your research privately, then laying the big question on her at the end is going to be a much harder sell.
Consider that having your spouse as a business partner, in addition to a romantic partner, can be a wonderful symbiotic relationship. She may have skills that can be very valuable to your business. Can she manage your company's social media accounts? (She's on Facebook all day anyway, right?) Would she like to answer the phone or respond to emails? Could she handle the accounting side of the business?
If you have a son or daughter, they could help you in the field when they're old enough, which would be a great way to teach them the value of hard work. And wouldn't a successful family business be the most amazing gift to pass on to them someday?
2.) Consider your work/life balance
Building your business can be a lot of fun...especially if you have an entrepreneurial spirit! But building a business is also time consuming, and it's important to consider your work/life balance. Even if your family is not involved in the day-to-day running of the business, your endeavor is going to impact them.
When you speak to your partner, be realistic about the amount of time that you expect to invest in the business, and take her needs into account. Especially when you are just starting out, it could take up a lot of your time and energy.
A good compromise can be setting limits for yourself. For example, you might agree that weekends are family time, and you will only work on weekdays. Everyone will have a different situation, so communicate with your spouse and figure out what is best for YOU and your family.
If you set clear expectations about time and stick to them, no one will be disappointed.
3.) Understand your family's finances
Our business opportunity has helped many families achieve a lifestyle greater than they could have imagined. Although this opportunity has almost unlimited income and growth potential, there are financial risks in any business venture.
Understanding your family's financial situation and making sure you AND your spouse are comfortable with the investment is critical when launching a business.
Let's face it, the last thing you want to hear is "I told you so" in the unlikely event that things go downhill. This is one reason you should get your spouse's blessing, aside from the other obvious reasons.

5.) Show that you will have more time with your family
Tired of being cooped up in an office building from 8–5? One of the best things about Dustless Blasting is that your hours are as flexible as you want them to be...after all, you're the boss!
If you are making the average rate of $300/hour, you would only have to blast for 7 hours a week to achieve a 6-figure revenue! For most of our contractors, this business allows them to spend more time with their families.
We hope these tips will help you have a productive conversation with your spouse. We've seen so many supportive families achieve financial success through Dustless Blasting, and we hope yours will soon join them!
