Finally …. a tool, a resource has arrived for entrepreneurs on maintaining good mental health is here, written by my friend, psychologist and fellow entrepreneur Dr. Sherry Walling and her serial entrepreneur husband Rob Walling.
I wish I had had this book 10 years ago when I started iThemes. It would have helped me better navigate the ups and downs of entrepreneurship.
So I’m buying a dozen of them as gifts to my entrepreneur friends this week.
This book was written BY two of us, FOR all of us.
If you’re just starting on the entrepreneur journey or already deep on it, this book is FOR YOU (and me). Whether you’re going through a tough season of life and business … or just humming along gracefully … this book is for YOU (and me).
I think of it as a companion guide to entrepreneurship, like a survive handbook for entrepreneurs climbing their own K2s.
It’s written by a true experienced expert, but in intimate human speak, with studies and stories abounding that brings what we all know and feel out in the open, with actionable help. It hits all the big issues we deal with … from depression and loneliness to family, stress and procrastination.
Right now, it’s $3.99 on Amazon Kindle. But it’s an invaluable investment in your mental health, which makes a chill $4 seem like they’ve given you no reason not to go get it right now. (In fact, I’ve got it in paperback and Kindle versions.)
And by the way … I’m not just shilling my friend’s book. And I don’t get anything from it, other than to help other entrepreneurs know about a key guide in the often lonely, often misunderstood entrepreneurial journey.
Sherry and I met last year and we instantly hit it off. Not only is she an amazing human but she’s extremely experienced and talented professional.
We connected over our common interest in the mental health of entrepreneurs. Then we worked together on several initiatives for entrepreneurs (and their spouses) through her ZenFounder.com work and I hope to work with her again very soon.
So when she told me she was writing a book for entrepreneurs last year, I all but begged her to get it out as fast as she could as I knew so many entrepreneurs are hurting and in need of her work and help, just like I have.
In fact I recall saying to her, “We (entrepreneurs) need this in the world.”
When I started sharing My Iceberg a couple years ago, I longed to have a practical tool and resource to share with others to navigate their own Icebergs day by day.
And today … it is here.
Go get it. Use it. Reference it.
I have, I am and I will be doing the same.
