Self Care for Entrepreneurs


Entrepreneurship is among the most stressful endeavors you can pursue because it requires you to manage not only your own emotions, but others’ feelings and behaviors on a daily basis. From financial challenges to choice-making concerns, you often face high-stress situations that can leave you feeling beat up and uninspired.


Self-care is an essential practice for all entrepreneurs, but how do you know if your strategies are actually building you up so you can enjoy a long, healthy career? This course teaches you targeted strategies for self-care and wellness, starting with a comprehensive inventory of your whole self—personally, and as a business owner, parent, partner, friend, and community member.


You will learn techniques for how to stop absorbing stressors, manage challenging situations, build long-term self-care strategies for all areas of your life, and track your progress through a series of somatic and emotional self-evaluations. This course gives you the opportunity to invest in yourself so you can build a more grounded, inspired, and sustainable career as a business owner.


Learn about strategies for planning and implementing sustainable wellness activities that support professional and personal growth, and techniques for reversing or preventing entrepreneur burnout. Ideas for engaging yourself and colleagues in physical, emotional, and mental wellness strategies that support growth, creativity, and balance, along with tips for increasing fruitfulness, inspiration, and motivation, which ultimately lead to a balanced career will be explored.


PLUS, as an added bonus, you get a Business Resource Book List sure to inspire, motivate, support and propel yourself into your dream business.
