You know, we have no problem talking about physical health issues. Someone asks how you’re doing and you say OK except my back is hurting today or I’m getting my knee replaced next week.

But when we have an emotional or mental health issue it’s difficult to admit and that can make it difficult to get help for.

Especially when you’re an entrepreneur.

It’s no secret that depression can be a problem for entrepreneurs and publications including the Guardian, Forbes, Inc, entrepreneur, fortune, and business insider have written about it. I’ll include links in the show notes to some of those articles.

So when I saw my friend and colleague Shanna Landoldt come clean about dealing with depression on FB I was floored.

I was impressed by her courage but also blown away because I never suspected she wrestled with the same issue I’ve wrestled with my entire life.

Shanna is a top recruiter and highly sought after media authority as a Career and LinkedIn Expert. She has been featured all across North America on NBC, ABC, CBS, FOX, CityTV & CTV.

She has authored 6 books and is a 4x #1 International Best Selling Author. She works with authors to launch their books as #1 Best Sellers on Amazon.

Entrepreneurs, Organizations and People interested in Career Advancement hire Shanna to create compelling LinkedIn Profiles that get them found for their expertise.

Organizations hire Shanna as a Keynote Speaker at Industry Events to share how to create a personal brand in your business using Social Media & LinkedIn.

Listen in as Shanna shares:

  • What led her to share her challenges with depression and the reaction it had
    The scary thoughts and feelings that motivated her to get help  
  • The strategies she uses to manage her business and her family when she has a depression flareup  
  • Insight into how you can help someone with depression and how you can ask for and receive help yourself  
  • And some business building tips that can help you grow your business in spite of mental or physical health issues you might have.

As always listen in all the way to the end where I’ll share your reflection exercise and action step for this episode.
