Being an Entrepreneur or being involved with the early stage Start Up can be super hectic. Especially when you start to raise money and at the same time you need to keep your business operational and you have social commitments. Obligations, lack of resources, ambition and commitment all ingredients which could lead to stressful situations long-term. We at Doerscircle been there: thinking stress will go away when things are settle down... Well wake-up! Nothing will ever settle building up your business, but there are ways to ease things. One of those things is to adapt a healthy lifestyle. Staying healthy can help you stay disciplined, improve your productivity and of course, keep you alive longer -- facts most successful entrepreneurs DO realise.
We like to compare the entrepreneurial journey with the journey of an athlete: it is all about performance, setting goals, focus and structure. One thing we can learn from athletes is the way they structure their lives by adapting a balanced program between performing (training and tournaments) and recovery (rest, food and relaxation). Our panel will be discussing how a healthy lifestyle impacts the performance of an entrepreneur.
We will discuss topics as: What can we learn from athletes? How does working out impact mental health? What is a healthy lifestyle? How do I know how healthy I live? What has food to do with performance? And obviously we want you to walk away with tips and tools to get started!
