Founders and entrepreneurs are a special breed and they can often be under tremendous stress. You need to stay relatively sane and productive or the whole thing will come crashing down. If you don’t take care of yourself you may burn out and you’ll be no good to anyone! This support allows you to have someone to talk to in complete confidence. You may not want your co-founder or investors know you’re struggling. You will get therapeutic interventions to help you stay productive and well. I can also help you with your confidence levels and teach you resilience strategies.
Why do I offer this? I’m fascinated by founders and what makes them tick. I was invited to speak at Cass Business School (now City University London) by Mike Southon in his capacity as Entrepreneur in Residence. Mike is co-author of the Beermat Entrepreneur. I discussed my work and offered advice to the undergraduates.
I’ve supported several founders through funding rounds, breakups with business partners, betrayals and the pandemic. I’m a speaker on the Dark Side of Entrepreneurship. I also offer specialist coaching for pitching confidence. Pitching is a very specialist area as so many things are riding on your success and potent subjects like rejection, asking for money and power dynamics. If your nerves get the better of you it’s bad news! Contact me if you’re interested in this service.
