This will be a discussion and discovery of the methodology used by entrepreneurs in dealing with some of the challenges and emotions in a non-traditional work environment. As self employed individuals or entrepreneurs, often we work odd hours and in non-conventional environments. We don’t have a water cooler to converse with others, are often alone and sacrifice steady social circles because of the odd hours we keep.
The three things we will discuss and explore are isolation, depression, and accepting success.
We will discuss the pitfalls of isolation and explore as a group ways of overcoming the isolated feelings that come with our career. We would then talk about recognizing and overcoming depression, which could be a direct result of the isolation we must try to avoid as entrepreneurs. The final topic would be dealing with success as entrepreneurs. Our DNA doesn’t easily allow for idle time, and the anxiety and fear of things being too good can often be crippling.
