Do you worry if you're open about your mental health challenges customers will see you as undependable or choose not to work with you?
Is the pressure to "have your ish together" taking a toll on your business and belief in yourself?
Kristen Westcott, business growth strategist and founder of The Freedom Track Method, is COMING OUT to the world about her own mental health struggles with depression and anxiety. Kristen realized that hiding that part of herself from the world triggered impostor syndrome and affected her authenticity online and in her relationships ... and she was done hiding.
As Kristen has learned to accept all the parts of who she is, she's no longer hiding behind the facade of "having it all together". She's adding her voice to the mental health and entrepreneurship conversation. It's time for entrepreneurs to level up their own radical self-acceptance and make space for their mental health along their entrepreneurial journey!
In this episode, we discuss:
- Balancing your public persona as an Expert with the reality of being Human and Vulnerable
- Pressure to "have it all together"
- Fear of being labelled negatively when being open about mental health challenges
- Being proud to own your own Mental Health as an identity
- Ditching the stigma around mental health challenges ... they're more common than we realize!
- How to make space for mental health along your entrepreneurial journey
"Part of my identity is being a mom, part of my identity as being an entrepreneur, part of my identity as being a woman. And part of my identity is somebody who has anxiety and depression." - Kristen Westcott
