" LET’S TALK ABOUT YOU, LET’S TALK ABOUT WHAT KEEPS YOU UP AT NIGHT, LET’S TALK ABOUT THE IMPORTANCE OF HAVING SOMEONE TO HELP ALONG YOUR JOURNEY".- JADE ALBERTS, FOUNDER, PEER GUIDANCE
Being an entrepreneur can be very lonely at times, that is why I am such an advocate for mental wellness. I have talked to many entrepreneurs that had no one to turn to, and if they did, it would have made a difference.
I am no expert in this mental wellness field, but I do speak from personal experience. I’ve had a couple of friends take their own lives, and it still hurts me that I never saw it coming. How many more people are suffering in silence? How many more are sitting on the tipping point of asking for help and never reach out?
I want to let people know that there is someone ready to listen to you. If you don’t think there is, please do not hesitate to reach out to me. We are starting to share our family experience where my wife had a breakdown during COVID and how we overcame this event in our lives. If this inspires one person or many people to come forward, our goal is achieved, but it is just the starting point.
We are stronger together, and to be a healthy entrepreneurial community, we need to be there for each other.
I want people to know that “ASKING FOR HELP IS NOT A SIGN OF WEAKNESS.” Please reach out if you need someone to talk to.
