how self-care can boost business

Published almost 2 years ago • 1 min read

Hey love!

Everyone knows that self-care is good for you, but what no one talks about is how self-care is also good for your business. That was a conversation I was recently part of.

The Plutus Foundation asked me to be an expert speaker on the topic of mental wellness for entrepreneurs during this year’s Plutus Impact Summit. I was honored to be on a panel with two other self-care gurus for this incredible virtual event.

The topic is one that’s near and dear to my heart.

After all, I own and operate two businesses, have 20 years of experience working in mental health, and struggle with depression, anxiety, and workaholism myself…

…as does 80% of the U.S. population.

We need to talk about what entrepreneurs can do to prevent losing their damn minds while building and growing a business…because that sh*t ain’t easy.

So, I’m going to share my thoughts from that conversation with you now, Q&A style.

Hey love! You might remember me telling you about how I felt when I finally bought my dream car- a sexy, black Audi Q7. I wrote a blog post about it. Well, guess what? I just sold it. Don’t get me wrong…I loved that car. I felt successful and accomplished in it. Every time I wrapped my fingers around that smooth, leather steering wheel, a smile would cross my face. And I truly enjoyed the exceptional experience of driving a luxury vehicle. But during a money date, I realized that the Audi was...

Hey love! I innocently opened an email with a catchy subject line- "free resource to gain 1.5K subscribers". I mean, who doesn't want more email subscribers? Especially if you can boost your list for zero dollars. Little did I know that I would spiral down a rabbit hole and lose 54-minutes of my life to researching oodles of email marketing-social media-landing page-sales funnel-organic growth- affiliate marketing strategies. OMG...why did I open that email??? 😫 It completely derailed me from...

The young warrior took three deep breaths, slowly approached fear and asked, “May I have permission to battle with you?” Fear replied, “Thank you for showing such great respect by asking permission.” Then she asked, “How...
