DESCRIPTION

A renowned psychotherapist shares how to navigate the most difficult parts of being a business owner

I wholeheartedly believe that entrepreneurship can be one of the best gifts you can give yourself. It can bring you freedom to design your life the way that you want to, all while doing something that you love. 

But as you probably already know, if not managed well, the stress of being a business owner can really take a toll on you. On the daily, entrepreneurs deal with things like decision fatigue, loneliness, and burnout.

In fact, I recently read an alarming statistic that 72% of entrepreneurs struggle with mental health, and I’ll be honest -- that number feels far too high, and a little close to home! 

It’s one of my goals to bring more awareness to this issue that affects so many people in business, and that’s why I invited Lori Gottlieb to be a guest on the show.

Lori is a renowned psychotherapist and New York Times bestselling author of Maybe You Should Talk to Someone, which now has a journal to go along with it. (Listen to find out how to get a chance to win one of these!) 

In addition to her clinical practice, she is co-host of the popular Dear Therapists podcast, and writes The Atlantic’s weekly Dear Therapist advice column. 

In this important conversation, Lori shares how to:

  • Find balance between vulnerability and being viewed as an expert
  • Lean on your own intuition more when making stressful decisions 
  • Tap into more acceptance and enjoyment when things change, versus fear 
  • Navigate loneliness as an entrepreneur

Plus much, much more! 

I’ll go ahead and call it right here -- this episode is going to be a fan-favorite. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
