Entrepreneur’s Talk

Thursday, January 10th, 2019

I meet a great many entrepreneurs, who readily talk about the fears that grip their clients but a small minority, who will voluntarily talk about their own fears and the consequences. It is “as if” vulnerability = failure or weakness. When in fact it is the polar opposite.

The reluctance to talk has a spiralling effect on individuals’ health and wellbeing, where stress is overlaid by more stress. That is why very few entrepreneurs succeed long-term without a strong support system. People, who are ideally placed to listen and offer qualified feedback. To be blunt, to be honest and to be supportive. Who those individuals are only the entrepreneur can ultimately determine.
