I'm working in a family business, but I feel that there's no future in it. How to I convince my father to let me work outside instead?

    You got a headstart with family business. Maybe you can find ways to transform it instead of going out.

    Being a family business you have more power to chart the future. If it is brick and mortar, maybe setup a website, start e-commerce for it?

    I know some friends who have small family business like selling dried food, and went to e-commerce too.

    I presume objective is to gain experience to bring the business to greater heights or to manage it within expectations.

    But if you have no idea why you want to work outside, consider that it won't matter.

    So ask yourself why. Then question if the why is valid.

    Without understanding why, you won't have any progress even if your dad approves.
