How to Avoid Entrepreneurial Burnout, without Losing Business, or Your Health


Entrepreneurial burnout is something that can creep up on you without you realizing it.

On Youpreneur.FM, host Chris Ducker shares his own experience with it and discusses the quick steps to avoid it.

One of the subjects Chris is most vocal about is entrepreneurial burnout. Why? Because he experienced it firsthand and wants to save you from doing the same.

By December of 2009, Chris was working like a mad man — 15-16-hour days, 7 days a week. Business was very good, but working so much was taking its toll on his health and impacting his family.

Chris ended up in the hospital from exhaustion and knew something had to change. He and his wife took some time away, during which they decided Chris would become the virtual CEO of their business.

By 2010, they had done it; now Chris has 3-day weekends every week, and works 6-7 hours a day Monday through Thursday.

On today’s episode of Youpreneur.FM, Chris shares his personal recommendations for avoiding burnout and setting yourself up for the long-game of entrepreneurship.

Listen in and take notes so you never have to go through what Chris did.

In this 14-minute episode of Youpreneur.FM, host Chris Ducker discusses:

  • How to pace yourself with your business
  • Why minor wins will help you achieve major victories
  • How many people did Chris have to hire to replace himself in 2010?
  • Why turning off your phone notifications is a small but important action
  • The necessity of a holiday: when and why you should plan your next one
  • Much, much more!
