burnout in Entrepreneur and small business owners

ways to avoid entrepreneur and small business burnout

Last October 2016, I hit rock bottom. After running my first business Finlee and Me for the last six years, starting Angela Henderson Consulting, taking care of two small children and also working full time as a mental health clinician it was time to stop. By body, both physically and mentally was done. And though I’m making progress the reality is that I’m still off on medical leave, but I don’t want the same thing to happen to you. So this is why I’ve created this blog post and free printable – 30 Ways to Avoid Entrepreneur and Small Business Burnout.
