S7 EP5: Danny Matthews – How to avoid founder burnout

Share the goodness!

Are you passionate about solving big problems but wondering how you can?

Then this episode is for you.

Just imagine waking up one day and securing 3.5 Billion in funding.

Then imagine the weight of that responsibility.

Let that sink in for a minute.

Because, as you’re about to learn, moving too fast and too intensely can change your life in ways you may not be lucky enough to walk away from.

My GENIUS guest, Danny Matthews, Founder of Short Story Ventures and director at Founder institute London, shares the year of stress both personal and work related that led up to his burnout; leaving him temporarily paralysed and even caused him to lose his speech.

His story of finding his passions and the importance of perspective when it comes to money, connection and the confidence to LET GO.

Let go of expectations

Let go of the data

Let go of the logic.

Let go of everything BUT the FUN.

Danny is living proof, that when you let go and lean into your passions you can come back stronger than ever.
