The Bootstrapped Founder

Instead of writing a lengthy article this week, I pointed my iPhone at my face, clipped on a wireless mic, put the puppy in the background of the shot, and hit record. I share my thoughts about forcing yourself to take breaks, even when you feel like you shouldn’t. I dive into the times in my life when that sentiment caused me massive mental health issues, and I point out a few misconceptions that contributed to that self-delusion.

If you’re having trouble taking breaks, this is for you.

And if you’re good at taking breaks, please tell me how to do it ;)

Here’s my “take the break or the break takes you” moment.
