Episode 6

Grief and Growing a Business

Published on: 8th November, 2023

Welcome back to the 6th episode of Building Unapologetically, where we explore the unique challenges that entrepreneurs face when dealing with grief. In this deeply personal episode, I share my journey of navigating grief while simultaneously growing my business.

In February 2021, I experienced a profound loss that shook my world. This episode delves into the complex journey I've been on, balancing the weight of grief with the demands of entrepreneurship.

Life can be unpredictable and emotional, with moments of great joy and profound sadness. To hear the full story, the highs, the lows, and the strategies I used to heal and keep moving forward, I encourage you to listen to the complete episode. It's a story of resilience, love, and the unwavering support of my community and business during a challenging time. 

And for those of you entrepreneurs dealing with grief, here are some pearls of wisdom:

  • Self-Care: Dedicate time for yourself, whether it's therapy, journaling, or revisiting cherished memories.
  • Listen to Yourself: On tough days, when you can't show up, it's okay. Don't force it.
  • Believe in Something Bigger: Hold onto your faith, seek signs, and trust in the greater plan.
  • Seek Support: Connect with others who have experienced similar losses. You're not alone.
  • Talk About It: Sharing your grief is tough but liberating. It helps you remember, embody strength, and help others.

Thank you for joining me on this rollercoaster of emotions. Grief is a journey, not a destination. As I continue to navigate these waters, I send you the biggest virtual hug. Remember, you're never alone, and you're stronger than you think. 💕

Wishing you strength, healing, and love in the days, weeks, and years ahead.
