Entrepreneurs’ Immediate Anxiety Cheat Sheet

“I am feeling deeply overwhelmed, a headache is knocking, and I am getting flushes of anxiety. I know I should do the following below but I try to reason that I have important things to get done…”

Where to Get Help for Anxiety, Depression and Suicide

Since publishing ‘The Anxious Entrepreneur’, I’ve been making interesting contacts with people.

I am not a professional anxiety, depression and suicide expert.

If you believe you suffer from anxiety, depression and are having suicidal thoughts, I humbly request that you get help from a trained professional. These are serious conditions you need to attend urgently.

Another Source of Depression

I have always been entrepreneurial. On two separate occasions as a kid I had vegetable gardens. On each, my grandmother, and later her daughter (my mother), gave away almost all my produce and thus succeeded in liquidating my intended businesses. I guess my mother got it from her mother – my grandmother gave it to her daughter.

Among the other things I aspired to be was Jean Claude Van Damme. I didn’t want to be Chuck Norris because he had bushy chest hair. I am 30 today, with medium chest hair. It is even turning white.

How my story should be is: he grew up poor, went to university; he then ventured into business, struggled for a bit of time and then became very successful. “He

[My] 7 Top Articles Helpful to Entrepreneurs in Admitting and Dealing With Anxiety and Depression

From all levels of start-up to big success in entrepreneurship, there exists a dark cloud often not talked about. It is anxiety and depression.

At worst, I’ve read stories of very successful and unsuccessful entrepreneurs committing suicide.

Entrepreneurship can be gruesome.

[Sir] Mick Jagger of the Rolling Stones is 73, has a 6 months old son – Deveraux – apparently conceived on tour, with a 29 year old girlfriend. He is still making music and doing other creative stuff.

Yeah, The Rolling Stones make hundreds of millions touring.

One thing I do not want to be is old and broke or poor. It saddens me when I see old people without any or much financial muscle to buy stuff – either alcohol, clothes, food, helping out their children and/or grandchildren. Their strength and mind renders them unfavourable to job – although not all.

It takes you on nonke.

7 of Tbo Touch’s Touchdowns: Nuggets for Pursuing Success

Some say Tbo Touch (real name, Thabo Molefe) is annoying on radio as he (formerly on his Metro FM show – Touch 326) talks more about himself.

I wrote this post before he left Metro FM to start his own online radio station with Gareth Cliff – Touchcentral. And now it has changed to Touch HD.

Maybe he is a bit of a narcist. I’ve figured there are great variables
