I can certainly relate to your situation, but not for the same reason. When I first opened my office service, my family seemed to have the same attitude about my job as your ex seems to have about yours. But a year and a half later, instead of making not-so-veiled suggestions about potential jobs for me, they are asking me about my "business."

Ask yourself if you really think of your "job" as a job, and if you do, then there is absolutely no reason for you to feel compelled to do anything else.

It really helped me to do silly little things like design a company logo, print business cards and publish a web site. I know it sounds silly, but when I had something to give someone who asked me what I do, it made me feel more professional.

I have also registered my business with a couple of local internet business services. You might consider joining your Chamber of Commerce or a Women's Business Owners Organization.

Once you start to feel like an entreprenuer, those around you will stop considering your job a hobby.

Good Luck!
