You’ve probably heard of the Fight, Flight and Freeze stress response, but do you understand how it can affect you as a purpose-driven entrepreneur? Do you know exactly what to look out for so you know if you are in a stress response? Do you know how to get out of the fight response and how to prevent it?

Today, we’ll be kicking off a Mini-Series on the Stress Response so that you can remain mentally and emotionally healthy, as well as fueled and energized for your business – instead of getting bogged down by your body’s default survival instincts when you experience stressors in your business.

In part 1, you’ll get an invaluable overview of the fight-flight-freeze stress response specifically in the context of purpose-driven entrepreneurship. Then, we’ll dive deep into the Fight response specifically so that you know what to look out for so you’ll know if you accidentally fall into Fight response, how to get out of it, and how to prevent it.

The result will be less worry and anxiety when things feel like an emergency or urgent in your business, less burnout, better sleep, and more effective communication with your friends, family and colleagues. You’ll also have the tools to make more smart, strategic decisions for your business and execute them with more long-term consistency once you understand how to manage the Fight response.

In this episode you’ll learn:

  • Why social-impact driven entrepreneurs are more susceptible to fight-flight-freeze
  • What the fight-flight-freeze stress response looks like for the purpose-driven entrepreneur specifically
  • What to do to prevent the fight response or to get out of the fight response if you are already in it.
