Did you know that 72% of entrepreneurs are directly or indirectly affected by mental health issues compared to just 48% of non-entrepreneurs? Crazy but true. For Mental Health Awareness Month, we are asking three well-being experts and super successful entrepreneurs, Sonia Samtani (Founder of All About You Centre), Mandy Pao (Founder and CEO of EQ International) and Coco Chan (Author and Coach behind Coco Alexandra Holistic Consulting), to share their valuable insights and practical strategies for achieving success while also prioritising your mental health.
In this event, we’ll explore the importance of defining your own definition of success. You’ll also learn about the speaker’s personal experience and hacks on overcoming challenges and their daily mindfulness routine to get ahead of the day. We’ll also discuss the importance of knowing when to push and when to let go, and how to navigate through obstacles while staying grounded and keeping it cool. This event is going to be jam-packed with helpful tools and techniques to help you find your path to success – both professionally and personally.
But what’s an Ask Party you say? At Launchpad’s signature Ask Party, we welcome members to network while wearing their ask, literally on their sleeve, thus inviting insights, advice and maybe even solutions! Through being more vulnerable, stepping out of your comfort zone, and having genuine and real conversations about things you need – making this not just another networking event, but a night where you receive real help from peers, mentors and other entrepreneurs who have walked in your shoes.
Don’t miss this evening of connection, inspiration and learning – drinks and nibbles included!
