Mental exercises for beginner entrepreneurs

As entrepreneurs (or entrepreneurially minded people), we find ourselves under intense pressure every day. We feel the pressure to perform, meet lofty expectations, work harder, sacrifice ourselves, and suffer for eventual future happiness. Society has led us to believe that entrepreneurs need to be and do certain things and look a certain way to achieve success.

This course is about dismantling these beliefs and patterns about entrepreneurs brick by brick. You will learn how to pursue your dreams and achieve your goals while being happier and less stressed.

“Great course, lots of information!”

“You really help me for things that I didn’t know. Thanks.”

“Whilst the course content was good, it wasn’t anything I hadn’t heard before. I also felt that ‘Mental Exercises’ was not representative of what the course contained.”
