How to get over friends who won’t support your business? How to stay motivated?

Anonymous
One of my friends insisted on helping me out with my hair business. We set up an appointment but she said she couldn’t make it, which is understandable I get it, life happens.

Before she had to cancel I did kinda find it odd that she had a doctors appointment 30 minutes before the hair appointment and told me last minute. I asked if she wanted to come in later that day or whenever her appointment was over but she had to cancel altogether.

Then I had another friend who wanted to help out but her car is still broken (since last year according to what she told me) and I mean she could still make it using lift/uber, I even offered to pick her up myself but ya’know, she “couldn’t make it”. And she has a job and I know she doesn’t walk to work. I tried rescheduling and they don’t know when they’ll be available.

Any way I could move on and not feel so bummed out about this? I have no one else to ask about supporting my little business.

And I don’t wanna sound negative, but sometimes I feel like some friends wanna bring your hopes up on purpose then flake out last minute to make sure you don’t succeed.

I could be wrong but that’s how I felt in both situations. I get being busy with life but nobody is that busy.

Thanks for the replies. Also with this situation I wish they would’ve just said no if they didn’t actually wanna help instead of saying yes then canceling and not wanna reschedule
