The founder is commoditized in the high-risk capital stack.

Thousands sign up for this psychological torture every day and investors put them in shark tanks on TV as entertainment.

Founder #mentalwellness will never be a priority because it isn’t necessary.

Here’s why👇
If one founder burns out there are ten more lined up behind them to take their job.

And don’t think that success will protect you. The investment world is happy to replace even the most successful founders with a seasoned hired operator. In fact they’re salivating for it.
So then, what can founders do to break out of this highly oppressive system?

The answer is to measure and track our psychological health alongside our business health.

The amount of mental health degradation we’re willing to trade for success is different for each of us.

(@manijadegarcia) #Compassion thread here, discussing ideas for survival, stress management, joy & healing using the acronym ACCESS to organize the ideas.

Be back after a break to dig in! 🥰


(@manijadegarcia) #Compassion to me is like creating welcoming, gentle internal space for the things I am #accepting—so I can be curious instead of judgemental about them. I'm reminded of indigenous views of trauma as "wisdom" & a "teacher," that can lead us to healing.

(@manijadegarcia) #compassion & #acceptance are closely related in my experience, like a bi-directional positive correlation, (increasing either can increase the other—try not to get hung up on stats "rules.") & #SelfCompassion is super powerful for general #MentalWellness.

It's #BellLetsTalk and for so many who struggle with #mentalhealth concerns, this day raises awareness and builds a culture of #compassion. Let's never again hear someone say, “just snap out of it” or “it’s all in your head.” @Bell_LetsTalk
Each of us may have different levels of understanding when it comes to #mentalhealth. Mental health is neutral. It’s not bad or good. It’s not necessarily positive or negative. It just is. #BellLetsTalk
A tooth ache will put you in the dentist’s chair. The flu is a reason to see the doctor. There’s no shame. Seeking help for #mentalhealth support must also be a safe experience. There's simply no other choice when your mental health is cast in shadow. #BellLetsTalk #EndTheStigma
