Research has shown that entrepreneurship can be a lonely journey. It is, however, mostly ignored and rarely discussed. Loneliness can make the world feel a little bit devoid of color and bleak at times. Not solitude, but loneliness. That feeling of being alone, craving human company, conversation and ability. Did you know that it is slowly becoming an epidemic? Loneliness le to depression, stress, anxiety and can cause a range of mental illnesses.
People are living alone, away from extended families. We are becoming a society of virtual residents. We are also living longer. Some of the first-time solo entrepreneurs have reported feeling this more acutely than others. Combined with the pressures of starting and setting up a business, it is hard to be the leader, the person responsible for all decision-making. It is tough at the top. Working from home can be isolating, and often self-employed freelancers miss the social interaction and sense of community in the workplace.
When I started on this journey, I found that I lacked the time to create any new social relationships or nurture existing friendships. There is no one to share the load, or the despairs of running a business, or even the joys of small victories and successes. Many entrepreneurs also report "money worries" as a reason for this increasing level of social isolation and anxiety. What are the s of loneliness? These can range from physical symptoms such as pains and aches to heart palpitations, panic attacks, low energy and lack of motivation.
