Working as an innovation thought leader and product management in a diverse corporate and startup settings taught me the importance of maintaining my mental health through work-life balance, self-care, and knowing when to move onto the next opportunity when all hope of transformation and innovation is lost.
The cumulative effect of stress, failure, corporate project derailment, and toxic work environments me over two decades ultimately transformed my recovery journey into a life mission of personally helping others recovering from mental health setbacks from attempting to innovate.
My clinical psychology skills, coaching, entrepreneurship, and real-world corporate experience fit naturally with this mission, and I decided to research and put together this workbook with survival tools, techniques, and strategies to protect your mental health.
