Founding a business can be extremely emotionally, and physically, draining. Dan and Ian are very familiar with the personal toll that the process can take on aspiring entrepreneurs.

A lot of times starting out means that you are broke and/or relying on your friends, family or ‘significant other’ to support you. For some, it can lead to stress, anxiety and even depression. Christopher Sutton knows these feelings all too well. A few years ago, Christopher wrote a blog post about what it was like to experience the emotional roller coaster of starting his own business, Easy Ear Training.

On this week’s episode, you will hear Christopher talk about what that felt like, as well has how he found support through this podcast and our community, the Dynamite Circle.

  • How starting a business can force you to focus on personal development. (3:18)

  • Why Christopher decided to start a business, even though he didn’t fit the classic entrepreneurial type. (6:46)
