Why addressing mental health and well-being is important for entrepreneurs who wants to #getnoticed; With Paul Meyers

In this episode, Jim James speaks with Paul Meyers, a coach, mentor, VC, and investor with 20 years of experience in the startup industry. Meyers highlights that the media portrays founding a startup as something glamorous and successful, but in reality, it’s emotional and can lead to mental health problems for founders. Meyers suggests normalizing discussions around mental health and creating safe spaces for founders to talk about their fears and challenges.

Meyers also discusses why males are less likely to approach mental health coaches than females, due to societal expectations of appearing strong and competent. He notes that the stress of being a founder can lead to unhealthy behaviors and a loss of empathy. Meyers suggests that displaying empathy and normalizing conversations around mental health can help founders recognize the symptoms of stress and address them before it becomes too late.
