Starting a new business is exciting, but it can also be very challenging and isolating, as well. It’s very common to feel stressed, worried, and lonely when you take on the responsibility of entrepreneurship.
Unfortunately, 61% of CEOs believe that loneliness hinders their performance. This is a big problem, and very much avoidable.
