Being the founder of a startup can feel like being on an emotional rollercoaster suspended between two skyscrapers. The highs can make you feel on top of the world, but the lows can be devastating.
These ups and downs of entrepreneur life are hard enough as it is, but they can become overwhelming, and for some unbearable, when you think you’re the only one struggling, or when you start wondering if something is wrong with you for feeling the way you do.
Founders’ Fears & Failures, is a weekly podcast aimed at normalizing mental health struggles and redefining failure in the startup ecosystem. Join me, Dr. Melissa Parks, an entrepreneur, former therapist, and mindset coach for ambitious professionals, as I interview founders, investors, mentors, and experts around the globe. Learn from their personal experiences, and the valuable insights and strategies they share for how to navigate the ups and downs of entrepreneurship.
This show will cover all sorts of issues related to the behind-the-scenes of entrepreneur life: dealing with stress, burnout and mental health struggles, juggling the competing demands of personal and professional life, coping with the inevitable setbacks and failures that are part of the entrepreneurial journey, and more.
Whether you’re a founder, an investor, someone connected to the startup world, or an aspiring entrepreneur, this podcast is for you. Tune in for a new episode each Tuesday as we shine a light on the fears and failures that come with starting, and growing, a business, and learn how to turn them into opportunities for growth and success.
