OH 7: Confronting the Realities of Entrepreneurship and the Loneliness Epidemic
Manage episode 241779749 series 2415743
During this week’s Office Hours, we take a candid look at the entrepreneurial loneliness epidemic. In truth, breaking out as an entrepreneur is a singular position where you’re working long hours, and making incredible sacrifices. Allon and I unpack these realities and offer some of our own strategies to bust out of our collective isolation. It’s our hope we can shine a light on the entrepreneurial shadow side and offer support to connect you with our dynamic community of Out Bosses.
