The Roller Coaster of Entrepreneurship #MentalHealth

The Cannon Houston 1336 Brittmoore Rd. , Houston, (map)

THIS IS A PAID EVENT - PURCHASE YOUR TICKET IN THE LINK BELOW On our journies as entrepreneurs, we encounter ups and downs not always knowing what to do or when to expect big wins or big setbacks. Our&nbsp;first drop is the only time we know what to expect,&nbsp;then we freefall, we bank, we corkscrew, we&nbsp;catapult - expecting the guide wheels to keep us on track. Our&nbsp;peers and our loved ones can be the difference between succeeding, continuing, or falling off the tracks.&nbsp;</p>This discussion is designed to help all of us recognize and learn what we can do to be more aware individually, as friends, and as&nbsp;teams.&nbsp;This isn't intended to&nbsp;be a sharing of your personal grievances and experiences, but a time to better understand what we can do individually and for each other's mental health.</p><h3>Here is what you can expect in the evening:</h3></p><ul><li>Peer gathering<br></li><li>Confidential conversations<br></li><li>Open heart-felt (transparency)<br></li><li>Strengthening bonds in our community<br></li></ul></p><br></p><h3>Agenda:</h3><ol><li>Practical hands-on exercise<br></li><li>Guided peer discussion<br></li><li>Self-lead breakout conversations</li></ol><br></p><h3>Every month we invite you to better understand and to embrace Startup Grind’s Values:</h3>Give First (before you ask)</p>Make Friends (not just contacts)</p>Help Others (before you help yourself)</p><br></p><h3>And to broadcast Startup Grind’s Mission:</h3>To Educate, Inspire, and Connect Entrepreneurs</p>Our global community of 300+ chapters in 110 countries worldwide is here for you.
