From Burnout to Breakthrough


Several months after establishing my third office I was tired. I was drained. I felt burnout. I felt lost. I felt stuck. I felt alone. Financially, the business revenue was at the highest level to date at that time. However, I was also fighting insurance companies for reimbursement leading to inconsistent cash flow, which of course is imperative for the sustainability of any business.


But something was also missing. Like a part of me. I was so consumed by the intricate details of building my mental health practice that I had to put my doctoral studies as well as other obligations on hold because I was managing business operations in Durham, NC; Columbia, SC; and Greenville, SC.


Essentially, I was experiencing what Iโ€™ve since coined The Mental Cost of Entrepreneurship.


I needed a break. Near my Greenville, SC office I would see the sign to Atlanta. I believe it was something like 172 miles away. I began to bargain with God for perhaps just a day trip to Atlanta. That didnโ€™t happen as something pulled me back into the office. Ultimately, in mid-October of 2015, I was burnt out. Mentally and physically exhausted. I had no choice but to take a break. Thus, I booked a getaway to Atlanta.


I gained so much clarity and peace during that brief getaway. So much so that just 2 weeks later, I took a life-changing step on my Greatness journey when I walked into greater obedience by setting my footprints in Atlanta, GA on October 31, 2015. Not to live in the traditional senseโ€ฆBut to live in obedience!
