The average person spends nearly 90,000 hours at work over the course of a lifetime. If you’re an entrepreneur, that number may be even higher. That’s an awfully long time to be miserable. In fact, it’s a breeding ground for burnout.
Entrepreneurs and small Biz owners are at a high risk of burnout. According to a January 2022 Forbes article, nearly 81% work alone, meaning they are doing all the things. All the time. This Constant busyness leads to overwhelm. It makes it hard to prioritize because everything feels urgent. After a while, it gets to be too much and you may start feeling like you are trapped on a hamster wheel with no means of escape.
All this toxic productivity leads to chronic stress, which left unmanaged leads to total exhaustion, apathy & burnout.
I don’t know about you, but I do not have time for that! After having my own burnout experience, I never want to feel like that again and I don’t want you to either. That’s why I became a Productivity Consultant focused on #JOYFullProductivity.
