The Marriage Family Business Podcast


Oct 18, 2018

The online life or social media life is something perceived as perfect. It’s that part where humanity kicks in and you start comparing your life to other people, sometimes, without even realizing it. Sometimes life has become too staged that it starts to look like it’s curated — and with that, the burden and stress of keeping up.

Mental health isn’t a topic that’s easy to bring up — it’s either because of the stigma or people just want to avoid being vulnerable. The truth is, vulnerability IS hard. It’s hard to admit that most entrepreneurs just keep on going even if reality is taking a toll on their lives and their mental health. Today, Mick goes all out in authenticity — sharing his experiences as Claire gives her support, understanding, and encouragement to people who are going through and have gone through the same. Listen to know more.
