Today Dan and Ian are going to talk about something that every entrepreneur has to deal with: the anxieties that come with our way of life and the challenges of sustaining and improving mental well-being. Owning and operating a business means huge responsibilities, and these can create all kinds of stress and fatigue.

Today’s guest, Dr. Sherry Walling, is an experienced clinical psychologist and host of the ZenFounder podcast. She also recently released a fantastic book on the topic called “The Entrepreneur’s Guide to Keeping Your Sh*t Together”.

Sherry believes that the success of our businesses is intimately tied to our mental health. She has joined us on today’s podcast to talk about why many of us aren’t taking enough time to care for ourselves, and what we can do to solve that.


Listen to this week’s show and learn:

  • How the stresses that entrepreneurs face differ from those working in a 9-to-5 job. (3:34)
  • Why entrepreneurship often feels isolating. (8:06)
  • How Sherry very nearly sacrificed almost everything in her life to satisfy her career goals. (16:12)
  • Some of Sherry’s favorite problem-solving strategies for entrepreneurs. (22:21)
  • How Sherry decided that she wanted to write a book. (29:53)

In the entrepreneurial world, it’s rarely questioned that “exiting” is the end goal of a smartly built business and a prestigious waypoint in a successful career.

In 2015, Dan Andrews and Ian Schoen sold their business for multi-seven figures, and although they don’t regret selling – there are many mistakes they made that were avoidable.

The book presents thought experiments designed to help you avoid similar mistakes.

Whether you are in the early stages of building a business or thinking of selling, this book is designed to help you build with the future in mind.
