The Real Bottom Line

Today, we're going on a journey back in time, revisiting an interview that struck a powerful chord with our audience - a conversation I had with the incredible Michael DeVenney about a year or so ago.

So, you might be wondering why this rewind is so important. Well, it all ties into a hot topic we've been discussing recently - breaking out of the business prison we often find ourselves trapped in. You see, this interview with Michael, it wasn't just any interview; it was one of our most popular episodes, and for a good reason. We tackled a subject that doesn't get nearly enough attention in the business world: entrepreneurs and their mental health.

As entrepreneurs, we're often so focused on building our businesses that we forget to take care of ourselves. And this, my friends, can have a profound impact on our mental well-being. It can lead to a cocktail of less-than-positive feelings about our business and, even worse, push us to make decisions driven by exhaustion and overwhelm rather than sound long-term strategies.

That's why, to complement this episode, I've designed a challenge tailored specifically for entrepreneurs like you. It's a chance to revolutionize the way you run your business and, more importantly, safeguard your mental health. You'll find all the details about this challenge in our show notes, so make sure to check it out.

So, without further ado, I invite you to dive back into this enlightening replay with Michael DeVenney. Let it serve as a mirror reflecting your own journey as a business owner, and start thinking about your own mental health. Are there steps you need to take to ensure you're thriving, not just surviving, in the entrepreneurial world? Join me in this episode, and let's unlock the path to a healthier and more prosperous business future, together.
