Some people have consulted me about their parents.
They say, “I want to quit the company and start a business. But my parents are opposed to it. So I will give up starting a business.”
If your parents are highly successful entrepreneurs, you had better listen to them.
But if they are not, I think it is nonsense to follow the parents blindly.
You are not a child but an adult.
Be independent of your parents.
You can choose your own way.
Will you be a successful business person if you keep obedient to your parents forever?
Will you be happy?
Will your parents take responsibility for your whole life?
Parents always worry about their children.
That’s the way it is.
It is not a bad thing.
Rather, you are happy.
But your parents wouldn’t know how to make a business successful.
They are different generations from you.
So they would not familiar with the latest businesses or technologies.
I’m not saying that you shouldn’t respect your parents.
But I just say you should be an independent person.
