32. Practicing and prioritizing self care as a creative entrepreneur is often a challenge because self care just never seems to fit in with all the work that has to be done, especially during busy seasons. And, even when busy seasons wind down, self care still tends to get put on the back burner because—well—there’s always more work that can be done. (Enneagram 3’s, do you feel this in your bones right now?)
But, according to Mental Health Therapist Courtney L. Porter, who’s coined herself as the “self care therapist,” making self care a priority is a must for creative entrepreneurs who want their lives and businesses to thrive. (Side note: This probably goes without saying, but creative entrepreneurs aren’t notoriously great at taking care of themselves or prioritizing their mental health.)
Based in Memphis, Tennessee, Courtney has dedicated her practice to helping creative entrepreneurs and small business owners better understand and practice self care. Between her professional niche, being a business owner herself, and the fact that Courtney is married to a photographer and works alongside him, Courtney truly knows how hard self care can be for creative entrepreneurs.
