Entrepreneurs! Give yourself the tools to develop the mental resilience needed to succeed in the pressure cooker that is…starting your own business.

While Erik Z. Severinghaus has been to the top of the physical world (literally climbing Everest) and the business world (exiting companies for hundreds of millions of dollars), what has defined his journey is not the successes…but rather, the hard times of loneliness and self-doubt that nearly cost him his accomplishments and his life. Every entrepreneur experiences these same crippling challenges but no one talks about them, and consequently, entrepreneurs have three times the rate of addiction and twice the rate of suicide of the general population.

This guidebook passes along the lessons needed in those dark times, with the hope that it will help every entrepreneur who is going through this struggle understand their journey and build the mental resiliency to succeed.

Erik Z. Severinghaus is an award-winning serial entrepreneur who has successfully exited three companies totaling over $500 million. He has also climbed many of the world’s highest mountains, including Mount Everest.
