DN62 - [Personal] Dealing with the Difficult Days: Confronting Entrepreneurial Depression

January 20, 2020

Pursuing the entrepreneurial path can be a very rewarding career, but it can also be a lonely one. There are plenty of ups and downs in the journey. There are long hours, uncertain days, and times when it seems like nothing is working out like it should.

 

In those times, entrepreneurs have to dig deep.

 

That is what this podcast episode is about. These are the days when our friends (or loved ones) don’t believe in our dreams, when our doubts get the better of us, or the obstacles in our path seem bigger.

 

It in those times, entrepreneurs need guidance on how to make it through.

 

The problem is, there aren’t many people that like to talk about. People like to focus on the money, talk about the deals, and the vacations.

 

They don’t like to get real.
