“Honestly my biggest problem with the startups that fail here, is that the founders burnout” divulged the MD of a prestigious global accelerator. “The founders put so much pressure on themselves, giving up all work-life balance…” she trailed off and locked eyes waiting for me finish her sentence to validate that I knew exactly what she was talking about. I responded “no one can maintain 80 hour weeks indefinitely.”
“Exactly!” she smiled, knowing she was not alone in witnessing this tragedy play over and over again. “Have you found a solution?”
I furrowed my brow and looked away trying to think of a succinct way to communicate all of the processes and procedures I had developed over the years, to cope with the highs and lows of an entrepreneur’s life. “Yes, I’ll think of a way to get them published” I responded, not realizing yet that the solution would be a website called 9apple.co
I hope that the processes and procedures shared here help you as much as they have helped me.

Do you know what the single most valuable asset of a company is?
It’s not its tech, or IP. It is the emotional health of the founder & CEO.
When the fire is in your eyes, passion for your startup is high and energy radiates through your body, there is rarely an obstacle that can stop your company from growing & succeeding.
Countless studies directly tie your emotional health and well being to your ability to creatively problem solve with ease.
But, on your way to growing your own company, a lot of people who have not built anything will waste time trying to tell you that who you are needs to change & how you view the world needs to change in order to be successful. Yet they are not successful themselves, so how would they know?
Lots of people view the world in lots of different ways. It never ceases to amaze me that some people believe you cannot be as successful as you are, unless you change into who they want you to be.
Rarely are these the people who have achieved what you hope to achieve and rarely are they the people who have an impact on your success.
They merely hurl insulting opinions at you for the sake of their own egos.
The faster you learn to become resilient to encounters with such individuals, the better off you, your health and your career will be.
With that being said, here is a repository of many of the techniques I use to emotionally heal quickly after such encounters.
I hope that by sharing them with you, you may find solutions that allow you to quickly bounce back from the obstacles and insults thrown your way so that you may continue to pursue your goals with focus & clarity.
