The Art of Friendship for Entrepreneurs

If you’re running a business, you undoubtedly have a million and one things vying for your time: family, health, religion, your business, and your friends. What most often gets pushed aside are friendships, which is especially true for entrepreneurs who tend to jam-pack their lives with as much as they can possibly fit in it—and then add some more on top of that for good measure!

That’s why in this episode, I'm talking about how to cultivate friendships as an entrepreneur. Friendships are not just good for us as social beings, but they’re also good for our overall physical and mental health, so I’ll be giving you my thoughts on friendships, how they have worked in my life, and how I’ve been intentional with them.
