Mental Health in Business

Will Talks Biz Podcast Episode 74 Mental Health In Business

“You might feel people are happy that I’m failing. Yeah. They probably are. So find people who are happy that you’ll succeed after you fail. Find those people.”

An often overlooked, yet critical topic, is mental health in entrepreneurship. It’s time for more people to break the stigma and have open conversations about the challenges we face as entrepreneurs and how to overcome them. Cassie and I discuss the importance of seeking professional help, surrounding yourself with positivity, and making positive changes in your environment. It is incredibly important to maintain a healthy balance and find support from others who have been through similar struggles. You don’t have to face it alone.

Don’t hesitate to seek help from professionals and those who have gone through similar experiences. You’re not alone in this journey, and reaching out for support can make a world of difference. Surrounding yourself with positive people and environments can help lift your spirits during challenging times. Choose a network that supports your growth and wellbeing.

When you notice negative patterns or feelings of depression and anxiety, take the time to reflect on what may have triggered them. Make positive changes in your life, whether it’s through hobbies, exercise, or setting boundaries in relationships and work. Stepping outside, enjoying nature, and engaging in activities we love can be incredibly rejuvenating and help alleviate symptoms of anxiety and depression.

Remember, success is not just about finances and accolades. It’s about finding balance and fulfillment in all areas of life. Prioritize your mental health and well-being alongside your business goals. Mental health challenges are common. There are resources and communities available to help you through any struggles you may be facing as an entrepreneur.
