E25 Overcoming Depression & Anxiety as an Entrepreneur with David Trotter

My today’s guest is David Trotter who has the most fascinating stories of being a pastor for 10 years, producing and directing feature films on social justice issues and more recently, being a business consultant focussed on supporting women. In this episode, David shares why he chose to work primarily with women and why this work makes him a better person. We also talk about his rock-bottom experience during his time as a pastor that eventually led him to depression and anxiety. Both depression and anxiety are not discussed enough in the business context and David shares his ways of overcoming them and managing his energy as an entrepreneur. Finally, we talk about legacy, the importance of understanding your why and playing the long game in business._______________LINKS MENTIONED IN THE EPISODE:— Client Creation Workbook: https://miannah.com/clientworkbook — SoulBiz Lab Waitlist: https://miannah.com/soulbizlab/ — 7-Day Free Trial of Rise Up Creatives: https://riseupcreatives.com/freetrial/   ABOUT DAVIDDavid Trotter is a business growth consultant dedicated to helping new business owners rise above their biggest barriers to reach their greatest goals.
