Emotional sides of Entrepreneurship: How to cope with emotional challenges when running a business.

Date: Wednesday, September 13, 2017
Time: 12:30 AM – 2:00 PM
Presenter: Lucia Gallegos, MA, RP (Q)

Running a business is already a stressful job that can create internal chaos, making you feel lost and stuck. Some of you might experience anger, anxiety, frustration, sadness and others feelings. We have been taught not express our emotions, and as women we cannot get angry because “good girls” are gentle. These internal ideas do not allow to express our feelings effectively.  In addition, being an entrepreneur does not only include dealing with daily professional issues, but also with other stressors such as family, romantic relationships, loses, personal crisis and internal demons.  How do you cope with all this?
I would be happy to see you at this workshop to talk more about the emotional challenges you are experiencing and how to cope with them.  You are not alone!
