The Mental Cost of Entrepreneurship was coined by Entrepreneur and Psychotherapist Shanna A. Jefferson to raise awareness of the importance of entrepreneurs taking a holistic approach in their endeavors including address their mental health. According to a study conducted by The University of California, 49% of entrepreneurs endure at least 1 mental illness. The challenges of entrepreneurs vary from lack of support, unpredictable cash flow, and the challenge of wearing many hats.
Mental health issues, if not addressed, can have a debilitating effect on not only the entrepreneur but their entrepreneurial endeavors and/or business as well.
Thus, it is important for aspiring and emerging entrepreneurs to take a holistic approach to entrepreneurship.
Ms. Jefferson offers support for entrepreneurs including psychotherapy, coaching, and books. In addition, Ms. Jefferson will host an event themed “The Mental Cost of Entrepreneurship” on February 25 in Atlanta, GA. Click here to learn more.
