As entrepreneurs, it is important to take care of our mental health as it affects how we work, how we think, and how we feel. Furthermore, research shows the importance of managing stress and maintaining positive mental health for successful business outcomes.

Can you tell us about a time when you experienced mental health challenges as an entrepreneur? How did you recognize those challenges, and what steps did you take to manage them?

When I was working on and set to release my second paperback book in 2020, I lost my big sister overnight! To this day, that is the most devastating thing that Iโ€™ve experienced. My mind was in turmoil and my heart was in pieces. However, I tapped into the โ€˜essence of my purposeโ€™ and fought through that unbearable pain long enough to finish the process of self-publishing a book that went forth to create impact for the readers, as well as open doors to stages for me to present on to further that impact. I learned that in the midst of pain and our darkest times, you have to โ€˜step outside of yourselfโ€™ enough, and then attach yourself to those deeper levels of spiritual principles and purpose that drives the human beingโ€™s existence. Weโ€™re capable of amazing things, even in the midst of seemingly impossible odds, if we but WILL to.

I recognized that although my family and I were suffering, I still had a job to do, and my word to keep, and the pull of duty on my heart, enabled me to keep going in order to finish the process. I also tapped into her desire for me to be great, and let that be fuel, knowing that she would want me to complete the book. I managed my mind through prayer, moments of acceptance of the loss through crying and grief, and the continued immersion of myself in Godโ€™s plans and purposes for my life.
