Recently, I presented at the AAVIP 2019 Online Summit – Digital Marketing for the Future. The topic was “Keeping it Positive – Mental Health for Virtual Professionals” and although it was pitched at virtual professionals it’s important for all small business to work on their mental health.

Topics covered include

  • Challenges Small Business Face
  • Workplace Stress
  • Strategies to help you look after your mental health
  • Signs of stress – Physical & Non Physical
  • Resources for Positive Mental Health

Prefer to read – here a link for that.
