Entrepreneurs may face in their lifetime deciding to or having to:
sell the business, close the doors (possibly in a rush), sunset the business


I am super passionate about the mental health of recovering entrepreneurs. The interesting thing about entrepreneurs is, you can recover and get over one business and then move on to another. However, it is important to take the time to recover, grieve and reflect on your business that once was.

We become so attached to our businesses. I recommend 4 things to do when you are looking at the next steps after closing or selling a business:

1. take time for yourself
2. be open about the things you accomplished (don't get stuck on failures) focus on all of the good that came out of it for you, customers and employees
3. be easy on yourself (as we can all be our harshest critic)
4. your next steps don't have to be forever steps, they may just be pebbles to a bigger stone

It took a lot of grit and grace to start a business, now take that grit and grace to step back from the closure or sale and heal, and eventually be able to jump back in again to whatever adventure you will be embarking on next.
