Coming out of the pandemic, we have all developed a different perspective on what life is about and what makes us “happy.” As we delve into the ways that COVID has forever altered our vision of mental health and what makes us feel fulfilled, a lot of focus has turned to the issue of entrepreneurship and mental health. It would be intuitive to expect that starting a business comes with a whole lot of risk and stress.
The first couple of years can be grueling and intense, which you might think could be the road to misery. But the research about entrepreneurship and positive mental health shows the exact opposite. Although there will always be some people who suffer from mental illness regardless of their career path or chosen work position, according to research, entrepreneurs enjoy more health and happiness on average than employees.
