Speaking, Teaching & Consulting


We entrepreneurs are conditioned to think that if we “break down” something is going wrong.

I invite you to consider that, if you “break down,” something might be going right.

What’s wrong is we’re taught that, for entrepreneurs, stress, burnout, depression and anxiety are exceptions, not the rule. Or, if we experience them, we should keep it under our hats.

By implication we have somehow failed.

But that thinking is flawed.

We have to recognize that mental health risks are inherent in entrepreneurship, and, like all other risks we face in business, we have to control for them.
