Understanding Your Patterns

As immersed in the world of entrepreneurship as he is, Joe Fier understands the common mental health problems that come with the job. On his show, he often hears other entrepreneurs talk about their struggles with anxiety and depression. Joe says he understands that feeling of being in a constant thought loop, and the loneliness entrepreneurs sometimes feel when the cameras are finally off. In this episode, Joe discusses the tricks he’s learned to fight those feelings and keep those thoughts at bay. After the death of his father, Joe Fier learned a lot about how someone’s changing patterns can show how they’re feeling inside, and how noticing his own patterns helped him figure out which ones were beneficial to a productive mindset. In this episode, he gives his tips on managing those anxieties and noticing good and bad patterns in your life to improve mental clarity, focus and flow.
