Hi Vaijanthi, i am looking for desperate help. i was an airhostess, that quit her job to get married. i wasnt allwoed to work at all but i did a few exhibitions related to clothing and home decor. i got divorced after 6 years and found myself very stuck. A relative asked me to help him by teaching students ielts at his newly set up overseas edu consultancy, and while going through my divorce i did that for good 2 years. i took a break and traveled for 6 months as i needed to reconnect with myself. after coming back home, i joined as partners with someone who had recently bought a franchisee of an overseas education consultant. its been 6 months now. im yet to sign the papers because i needed to check if i can commit myself to this. i find my partner dishonest and she is limiting my growth by keeping me restricted to teaching. I undersstand we cannot hire staff till we dont make money, but the franchise owner is bound to provide me the same counseling training they provided for her.I find it all very unprofessional. Recently an investor approached me, asking me to run a similar company and he woukd be a 50% sleeping partner in the profit. it all seemed great until i proposed the idea that the company has to be on a name thats not his already existing group of companies and that i will start counseling after 3 months and hire a tutor to do the teaching. I dont understand why people dont let me grow. i am aware that for a city like Surat, my background and communication is goo and i am good at teaching ielts n toefl. But thats not what i want to do forever.
i feel lost and worried for myself. I am 34 and if i set up a business here and leave when i find someone to marry me, what happens tot the business? if i work here, im not skilled enough for a creative job. I do hav the options of leaving surat but i lost my dad recently and only have mom here. moving to mumbai or bangalore would mean paying rentals and i would hardly save anything.

There are a lot of questions that you have asked here and it isn't possible to respond to everything here. First of all make sure you are communicating what you feel to your business partner/s . You also need to ensure you communicate your thoughts in a professional manner, with the intention to find a working solution that works for all parties involved versus communicating to place blame. This is always a more productive and smarter way of communicating. You need to look at your statement " I dont understand why people dont let me grow." That is giving a lot of power in everybody else's hand, and you need to take that power back . Regarding your business and what will happen if you marry and move etc. You can only take decisions based on what your circumstances are as of now. When your circumstances change you can take the next decision based on your changed circumstances.
All the best.
Thanks and Kind Regards,
