What You'll Discover In This Episode:
I have an admission.
I see a therapist.
There. I said it.
Unlike many, however, I am in no way, shape, or form embarrassed about it. I have seen a therapist off and on for many years and see it as an extension of my personal growth and development. It’s just another avenue that helps me work on myself, and in turn, my business.
Not everyone feels the same way and I get it.
There’s a giant stigma around therapy.
As relationship therapist Anna Osborn said, people are ashamed, scared, and reluctant to do therapy because they don’t know what it really is.
That in itself is a shame because therapy can do wonders for the people behind the businesses. It can provide necessary support and coping strategies, make you feel heard, challenge your ways of doing things, and boost your self-esteem and self-awareness.
Therapy can also help you navigate your relationship with your partner, whether they’re supportive of your business or not.
In this episode of Productivity Straight Talk, guest Anna Osborn, dismantles some myths around therapy for entrepreneurs, gets to the bottom of why having conversations about your business with your partner can be so frustrating, and offers real advice for transforming those tough conversations into healthy, productive ones where you leave feeling heard and supported.
