Book Review: "The Entrepreneur's Guide to Keeping Your Shit Together", by Sherry Walling

"All the magic I have known, I've had to make myself."

Shel Silverstein

I think Sherry does a great job in speaking to entrepreneurs about mental health in general, and mental health in the context of consistent, persistent stressors (like starting and running a company). For me at least, it sometimes feels like a constant battle to keep my head above water, and I'm not even running a company. But I do think there's freedom in choosing our problems. In the end, that's what freedom is for, to discover which problems you'd rather face, and the ones you do shape your identity.

I don't think I have too much to say here. What's said in this book is said many times over. The hard part (for me) is internalizing advice, and Sherry's position as both a business owner and a licensed doctor may make it easier to trust her advice on psychology, just as a verifiable authority on the subject. That may make all the difference.
