Entrepreneurial Burnout

“Burnout is nature’s way of telling you that you’ve been going through the motions your soul has departed.”

-Sam Keen

Starting a business requires a tremendous amount of sacrifice and hard work.

In the beginning, you were so excited about your business. You would often stay up late and wake up early to plan, brainstorm, and create. You were on fire.

But then something began to shift.

Rather than feeling excited, you started to feel stuck. You may have seen the signs of burnout coming for a few months, but you thought it was just a temporary dip in motivation. Or that you just needed to be more disciplined.

You didn’t realize that it was your body telling you to slow down.

But then you noticed yourself avoiding work. You’d procrastinate on important tasks only to feel more stressed later, and then you avoided them even more.

Now it feels like you’re always falling behind, and you just can’t seem to get it together. You’ve hit a wall.

On top of that, you still feel so much pressure to be on your A-game all of the time. Colleagues, employees, and customers expect so much from you, and you used to be able to balance everyone’s expectations (including your own).

But now it feels like you’re crumbling under the weight of it, and you have no Plan B.

You’ve also noticed that it’s affecting your home life.

You’re not present with your family, and when something happens to undo your already precarious “balance,” you begin to unravel.

Maybe you’ve taken time off to recharge and all that did was make you dread having to come back to the office.

You’ve looked online and read countless articles about the importance of delegating, taking breaks, and meditating, but none of it really seems like a long-term solution.

You’ve worked so hard to get here, so the last thing you want is to lose everything. You’ve already sacrificed so much, and you want to find a way to balance all of the spinning plates without losing yourself in the process.

When I work with an entrepreneur who is dancing on the edge of burnout, it’s important that we act fast.

The truth is that the signs of burnout start showing up long before we even realize it.

It’s easy to wave off the signs because they don’t seem serious at first. You may have told yourself, “It’s just this season. I just need to muscle through this.” 

So by the time you get to this place, it can feel overwhelming. 

The good news is that counseling can help. 

Together, we’re going to work backwards a little bit to figure out what happened so that we can prevent it from happening again.
