The Leading Researcher On The Entrepreneurial Psyche Shares Tools For Building Resilience

To get through the startup journey, you need resilience. This is why Psychologist Dr. Michael A. Freeman explains that every founder should prioritize a wellness-oriented lifestyle.

The entrepreneurial journey can be tough. And founders know this. But that doesn’t mean that they’re doing all they can in order to cultivate resilience. In fact, this is a part of their life that’s all too often neglected.

Psychologist Dr. Michael A. Freeman explains that every founder should prioritize a wellness-oriented lifestyle, including sleep, physical activity, and nature exposure. Founders should also take breaks, develop social support networks, and maintain interests outside of work. Managing market uncertainty requires understanding how your mind works and maintaining a proper attitude. The data we’ve found at Startup Snapshot shows that a majority of founders experience mental health effects from the entrepreneurial journey, but only a small percentage seek professional help due to stigma. It’s important for founders to accept and embrace their mental health characteristics and seek help when needed.

In this video you’ll get more information about these suggestions for startup founders:

  • Prioritize a wellness-oriented lifestyle, including sleep, physical activity, and nature exposure.
  • Take breaks and develop social support networks to mitigate the loneliness of entrepreneurship.
  • Maintain interests outside of work to avoid becoming unidimensional.
  • Understand how your mind works and maintain a proper attitude to manage market uncertainty.
  • Accept and embrace your mental health characteristics and seek help when needed.
