Entrepreneurs face multiple inner battles. We can be so connected emotionally and physically to our work, that we push ourselves in directions that aren’t particularly healthy, and the repercussions can monstrous.
Welcome to The Psychology of Entrepreneurship, a candid and revealing series that follows Ronsley Vaz and his guests, as they strive to unravel the inner workings of the entrepreneurial mind, and explain why even the most successful among us experience Imposter Syndrome.
If you are someone who is holding back, feeling unworthy of your success or questioning your competency as a professional then this podcast is for you.
Dr Sherry Walling is a licensed clinical psychologist who understands the mental mechanisms of entrepreneurs. Her life’s work revolves around trying to guide people through the difficult emotional aspects of business on a psychological level.
