I had never heard of the term, "Founder's Blues" until I read a Globe and Mail article by Chris Gory. This is a Canadian news source but I have a feeling that mental health issues don't worry about borders. The article points out that many startups end in failure and even the ones that succeed, often contain a roller coaster of highs and lows. The fear of looming failure, the stress and burnout, contribute to mental health issues for 72% of entrepreneurs, compared to 7% of the general public. Why? Immense pressure, anxiety, long hours, high expectations and overwork when starting and building a business. It's particularly bad for those whose expectations are unrealistically high. They lose focus and passion and can become very depressed. Lack of self-care and suffering in silence create a perfect breeding ground for Founder's Blues. Gory's article suggests that entrepreneurs have realistic expectations, take care of themselves and have support systems in place. That includes seeking help for stress and depression. Do you know of anyone who has or has had, Founder's Blues?
