“When we suppress [feelings], they come back with a vengeance.”

—  Julie Greenham

This episode is a personal one. We all go through challenging times — illnesses, job terminations, breakups, and breakdowns. These are an inevitable part of life. It’s how we navigate these challenges that determines how we end up on the other side. 

Yes, this episode is all about how to deal when life kicks us around.

Big life changes can often lead to depression or anxiety, which can affect how we show up in our businesses… or keep us from showing up at all. For solopreneurs, this is especially challenging. 

Big changes can also lead to big fear of change. Fear of change is borne of fear of uncertainty, which can bring up past issues or cause unwanted mindset shifts. 

In this episode, I want to talk about the steps that you can take (and the space that you can create) that will help you move along the path of healing when big changes strike.

In‌ ‌this‌ ‌episode,‌ ‌you’ll discover:‌ ‌

  • 5 methods for dealing with the stress and grief that can come from life changes
  • How your mindset may shift in the wake of loss or change — and how you can get it back on track 
  • Different treatment modalities that you can seek out to deal with emotional struggles
