Don't Tie Your Self-Worth To Your Business

Don't Tie Your Self-Worth To Your Business

Having your self-worth fully tied to your business is a slippery slope. It's the same as having your self-worth tied to a relationship. If you get destroyed by it not working, you won't be able to continue to the next step—and businesses are a long term thing.

So take care of yourself and make that a priority. Protect your mental space by blocking out time to think.

Creating Space

How do you create a space for yourself away from the stress of your company?

You also have to be very intentional about balancing friends, family, and relationships with work.

Find A Mentor

The best thing we can do is find a founder that is one step ahead of us to give us perspective. 

Opening up to someone that can be impartial, that can understand your struggles, give some perspective, or even just give an ear to the problems you're facing—sometimes that’s 50% of the solution.
