I am thrilled to announce the launch of the Indie Business Fit Club! The recent suicides of entrepreneurs like Kate Spade, Anthony Bourdain and others, not to mention the many discussions in our private Facebook community around the topic of burnout and stress, have led me to believe that it's time to embrace entrepreneurial fitness head on as a community.
Entrepreneurship is Stressful
In order to experience business success, we must invest tremendous valuable resources. Money. Time away from family. Focus outside of ourselves. It's exhilarating and exciting, and also tremendously stressful. We sometimes need extreme amounts of stamina. It can be exhausting and depleting to always be chasing more more more.
The pursuit of entrepreneurial excellence is a noble thing, but we all know that it can also take a huge toll on our mental and physical well-being, and if we are not careful, we risk losing the relationships and experiences in life that are most dear to us.
