In This Episode:
Today we’re talking about something that we feel is missing from many conversations about building your business.
When dealing with a crisis in your personal life, it can seem impossible to work mid-meltdown.
This is exactly why it’s critical to build a strong support network around you when you work alone or in small teams.
Not only is it powerful for your mental health on a daily basis, but it’s also extremely important when life hits you with one of those sucker punches that knocks you down for the count.
Having a community of people who understand your work, who support you, and who can help you stay afloat when things go wrong is one of the most important insurances you can build for yourself.
Since Rachel recently went through a crisis in her personal life that threw her business for a loop, we felt it was time to discuss this important topic that’s often swept under the rug.

– Rachel’s Note: Laura sent me this book when my Mom died, and while it didn’t fix anything, it explained everything I needed to know about how grief works. I highly recommend it if you’re dealing with a loss, or more importantly, if you’re trying to support someone who is and you don’t know what to do.
