Managing Anxiety As An Entrepreneur

Alright guys,

Entrepreneurship can be really damn hard

And when you add anxiety into the mix, sometimes it feels like you just can’t get ahead.

Anyone who knows me knows I’ve struggled with anxiety disorder almost all of my life. It really started to show itself when I was young and my mom was sick with cancer and my sister was sick with a life-threatening disease at the same time. Since then, I’ve been on so many different anxiety medicines, and trying to find ways to naturally help my anxiety attacks that would seem to show up more often than not.

Self-care isn’t selfish. Wellness is a business decision, people.

18 Lessons I Learned in 2018

This last year I quit my 9-5 job. I broke off an engagement and relationship. I launched a successful web design and branding business where I’m now booked out for months (!!!) I moved to Raleigh, North Carolina from Louisville, Kentucky. I learned how to live by myself and pay the bills alone for the first time ever. I got off all my anxiety and depression medicine by practicing mindfulness. I doubled my corporate income by working with my dream clients in my own business, doing work I love. I adopted a dog I couldn’t love more if I tried. I made new friends. I fell in love with myself again. 2018 was so good to me and I learned SO many lessons along the way.
