From a licensed psychotherapist turned business coach perspective, the link between mental health and entrepreneurship seemed clear. But during Mental Health Awareness Month, an unexpected twist emerged: the unique challenges female solopreneurs faced. What I discovered shook me to my core and fueled my passion to address this issue. But what was it that I found? Keep listening to find out.
In this episode, you will be able to:
Prioritizing Mental Health
Entrepreneurs should focus on self-awareness and self-acceptance to better understand their mental health needs. This can enable them to identify the warning signs of declining mental health and take appropriate preventive measures. Incorporating self-care, establishing a strong social support network, and seeking professional help when needed are essential steps in safeguarding mental well-being.
Mental Health and Entrepreneurship
The high-stress lifestyle that often accompanies entrepreneurship can take a toll on one's mental well-being. Acknowledging the potential issues and taking preventive measures to ensure mental health remains strong can be key to overall success in business.
There is no "Good Time" to Prioritize Mental Health
Mental health deserves ongoing focus and attention, and there is no "good time" to start prioritizing it. Waiting for an opportune moment or certain revenue milestone may lead to dangerous delays or neglect of mental well-being, resulting in a mental health crisis. Fostering mental health resilience and stability must be a constant endeavor, incorporated into daily life and business practices.
