no bs business school May 12, 2023

In today's episode, we're going to talk about the elephant in the room - the desire to burn your business to the ground and walk away.

I want to start by asking you an honest question: have you ever thought about quitting your business? Have you ever felt overwhelmed, burnt out, or like you just want to give up? If you have, you're not alone. As entrepreneurs, we pour our heart and soul into our businesses, but sometimes things don't go as planned. Sometimes we feel like we're in over our heads, and like we just want to throw in the towel.

Now, I'm not going to pretend like I have it all figured out. I've had these feelings more than once in the past couple of years. But what I do know is that there are ways to cope with the emotional toll that running a business can take on us.

In this episode, we'll explore why these feelings are common among entrepreneurs and what you can do when you experience them. We'll talk about the importance of self-care and how to cope with stress and anxiety. We'll also discuss practical steps that you can take to keep your business going, even when you feel like burning it to the ground.

And perhaps most importantly, we'll talk about the importance of having a community of support around you as an entrepreneur. Having people who understand what you're going through, who can celebrate the good days with you and support you through the tough ones, can make all the difference.

So if you've ever felt like giving up on your business, or if you're struggling with overwhelm and burnout, this episode is for you. We'll dive into the tough conversations and explore how to bounce back from wanting to quit your business.

Let's jump into this conversation together!
