The first steps to recovering from burn-out as an entrepreneur is acknowledging that I am burnt out. I resisted this for a long time. I didn’t want to admit that I was in burn-out and thought if I just kept doing more that it would be ok. At the same time, I was feeling a lack of desire to share content on social media.

And at 7 o'clock in the evening around the world, no one is making noise to honour our health care workers anymore.
