Publisher's Summary

You run a business. And running a business is hard.

The burden of responsibility, the weight of stress, and the loneliness of running your business are a far cry from your friends who work salaried jobs. The path of least resistance is to let the stress and isolation of starting, running, and growing a business infiltrate most aspects of your life.

Over and over, we've watched our fellow entrepreneurs succumb to the mental toll and chaos of running a business. We've also experienced it firsthand as we've launched and grown our own businesses.

Why do I need this audiobook?

  • You want to invest in yourself (and consequently, your business).
  • You want to learn proven strategies and techniques to overcome the challenges that cause you heartburn.
  • You want to get off the treadmill of stress and isolation that entrepreneurship brings.
  • You want to prevent burnout, depression, isolation, and the emergence of damaging coping strategies and self-sabotaging choices.

Every aspect of this audiobook is a pairing of psychological expertise with decades of entrepreneurial experience. Here are just a few takeaways:

  • New ways to deal with the responsibility and anxiety that go along with being an entrepreneur
  • How a single shift in mindset can make a lifelong difference in your success and fulfillment
  • Why knowing yourself and where you came from is crucial to your success
  • How to succeed as an entrepreneur no matter your personality type
  • How to keep stress from ruining your life and relationships
  • Identifying and dealing with anxiety, burnout, and other common psychological burdens
  • How to get more things done - and faster
  • Staying connected with your significant other, friends, and colleagues
  • How to deal with overwhelming success and (seemingly) massive failures
  • How to find personal calm in the midst of chaos
  • And much more....

A++ 10/10

A++ 10/10 will read again. Should be required reading for any entrepreneur. And also very well read in the audio book version.

Hard to listen to

I really want to like this audiobook, I heard the author speaking in an interview and was drawn in to purchase it.
Unfortunately the way the book is delivered by the author is almost incomprehensible, the sentences roll into each other with little pause for punctuation or aesthetic flow. I don't know if this is how the book is written or just how it is being delivered by the author but it feels rushed, in some cases stumbling over words or mumbling, which is inexcusable in a pre-recorded format.

I'm about an hour in and I had to stop listening, it's just too poorly constructed. The underlying story and ideas sound great but I cannot take the journey with the author.

great

is both a summary of 3 years of the zen founder podcast but also extended and updated with practical, actionable advice. I can see myself listening to this many times
