Being an entrepreneur is mentally challenging. Let’s explore the topic of mental health and resilience together.

Being an entrepreneur can be mentally challenging, especially this year. When we reflect on what entrepreneurs need in 2020, we feel that an infusion of mental health is an answer. We strongly believe that mental health is a long-term success factor for any entrepreneur.

Join us in our initiative to openly discuss mental health and entrepreneurship.

  • We will look at why this role is challenging and how you can check whether you are on a good path.
  • We will offer you insights into how other entrepreneurs cope and what are the strategies that work for them.
  • We will see how resilience can be built up.
  • We will have a shared learning session with the opportunity to build connections.

Our goal is to leave with some useful and applicable tools. The event is planned as an open event so you can join as it fits you.

Let’s stay mentally well, and let’s connect!

Note: This event is accompanied by a daily morning meditation session during the week. Join us!

Responding to challenges from a place of openness and trust instead of a place of scarcity and fear is vital if you want to thrive and not just survive as an entrepreneur. You can learn to develop a resilient mindset. What is needed are three elements: attention, intention and cultivation. Don’t begin to weave your parachute when the next major challenge arises, better start now.
