According to a University of San Francisco study undertaken by Michael A Freeman at least half of all entrepreneurs suffer from a mental health condition throughout their lifetime. I realised through the course of my own business career that though we are surrounded by positive affirmations and motivational soundbites (which I know are important to encourage and uplift founders) we do not speak about the challenges that we face enough, beyond overcoming financial challenges. I am really passionate about the importance of truth telling through our journeys as entrepreneurs and business owners and so in this conversation we spoke about coping mechanisms and the importance of self-care. I also spoke to my younger self:
