One of the subjects I am most vocal about is entrepreneurial burnout. Why? Because I experienced it firsthand and want to save you from doing the same.
By December of 2009 I was working like a mad man – 15-16 hour days, 7 days a week. Business was very good, but working so much was taking its toll on my health and impacting my family.
I ended up in hospital from exhaustion, and knew something had to change. My wife and I took some time away, during which we decided I would become the virtual CEO of our business. By 2010 we had done it; now I have 3 day weekends every week, and work 6-7 hours a day Monday through Thursday.
On today’s episode of Youpreneur FM I share my personal recommendations on avoiding burnout and setting yourself up for the long-game of entrepreneurship. Listen in and take notes so you never have to go through what I did.
“Entrepreneurship is a long game!“
