It’s easy to attribute the struggles we have between our ears to various external factors but at the end of the day, it is we who should take full responsibility for our own mental health. Kim Sutton knows this from her personal experience of having to struggle as a mother and entrepreneur at the same time. In the age of social media, it is very easy to fall victim to the comparison trap, subject ourselves to unattainable standards of success, and suffer mentally as a result. In what ways are you struggling with mental health as an entrepreneur? More importantly, what are you doing to address them? If you aren’t already, it’s high time you should.

What do entrepreneurship and puberty have in common? It may sound like a weird question but Kim Sutton knows from her experience as a businessperson and as a parent that there is one critical point of comparison between the two.

Have you ever felt a fear of missing out on the next big thing in marketing, the hottest course, or the newest piece of software? That stage of succumbing to peer pressure is what Kim calls entrepreneurial puberty. You might know it by another name – shiny object syndrome. Listen in and learn why entrepreneurs have to go through their own period of puberty and how you can overcome yours.

“You’re on mute.” -We hear that often on our zoom meetings. But today, we will talk about being “mute” in the business setting. In order to survive, we let our society force us to conform to a norm, which does not fully resonate with us.

In this episode, Kim and author Marie White discuss why you should share your voice, and how you can keep sharing it in this modern world. Also, listen to tips and information you can use to protect yourself, your business, and your network even if the web decides to “de-platform” you. The call to go back to real conversations has never been more urgent. Find your voice and move forward with hope with today’s conversation.
