WHY JOIN THE CONVERSATION?
IT'S GOING TO HAPPEN
If you’re an entrepreneur, you will experience depression at some point.
And probably anxiety, fear, elation - and every other emotion you can imagine.
The Depression Discussions™: The Conversations Entrepreneurs Need to Have is a series of video interviews with exceptional individuals and experts focusing on living with – and working through – depression as an entrepreneur, creative, or intrapreneur.
WE NEED TO KEEP TALKING ABOUT IT
These are conversations we need to keep having, not having solely when in a state of shock or grief after we lose a creative or entrepreneur like Anthony Bourdain, Kate Spade, and SO many others.
I am Catherine Morgan, the founder of The Depression Discussions™ and Point A to Point B Transitions Inc. For the past few years, I have openly discussed my “mud-wrestling” with depression on my company’s website and on CarolRoth.com.
The whisper for this project came during a very dark moment around Thanksgiving in 2014. I published “Depression and the Small Business Owner” on Carol Roth's blog Business Unplugged and generated a deep and rich conversation within the entrepreneur community.
So many entrepreneurs and small business owners admitted to struggling as well, and thanked me for creating a safe place to share.
Surprisingly, I even got several clients from this post due to the vulnerability I displayed, which helped others ask for the help they needed.
The call for this project came after Anthony Bourdain’s suicide in June 2018 when I completely lost my mind. It turned into this post “Compare and Despair: Entrepreneurs and Depression.”
Our mission is to destigmatize talking about depression and anxiety, to provide a safe place for people to share their experiences, and to be a lighthouse for professionals who are struggling with darkness.
Are you struggling to make sense of things? Feeling anxious or depressed about what’s happening in your life or the world?
Are you wondering what the new normal looks like? Or if we’ll ever slow down enough to have a new normal?
Do you feel like you have almost constant jet lag?
Are you experiencing more than your share of WTF moments?
If you are, you’re not alone.
I have created a 10-day eCourse to explore the Top 10 reasons why we’re more depressed, and what you can do to feel better.
We need new coordinates for the GPS and we need some guidance.
In short, we need to recalibrate.
Please join us for a 10-day eCourse exploration. (It’s free!) Each day you’ll receive an email on a different topic with links to related content that you can chew on.

WHY THE DEPRESSION DISCUSSIONS?
We need to keep having these conversations. We need to take the stigma away from talking about depression and anxiety.
RECALIBRATE! 10-day eCourse
This isn't working! Rates of depression are skyrocketing.
I think I have figured out why - and what we can do about it.
