I’m writing something different today. It’s a topic I’ve been wanting to cover for awhile, and I’ve noticed that there are a lot more people in similar, unique, situations as me.
I’m not sure why, but for some reason I’ve been surprised about how many other entrepreneurs and business owners battle with mental health and chronic illness. You cannot see on the outside, but on the inside it’s a whole other world. These are topics I don’t hear enough about in our industry.

Day 6: #FeelGoodBlogging Challenge – Vulnerability
Now, I have no problem being vulnerable. That’s what makes us human and “real”. The question is what to write about since I’ve written a few things already that were vulnerable.
