How to Avoid Burnout and Free Your Mind as a Visionary Founder

Episode 12 w/ Benjamin Weir

How often are you in the vicious cycle of delegating work to a business partner only to realize that you can’t relinquish control — and as a result, inch one step closer to burn out?

Meet our featured guest, Benjamin Weir. Ben is a successful serial entrepreneur and at age 29,  he’s on his fifth brand after exiting four ecommerce brands: BluMaan, Forte Series, Aetos Apparel and Apricus Skincare. 

While working 60-80 hour weeks in his early 20’s and buying into hustle culture, Ben became increasingly physically ill until his body gave out and chronic illness set in.

After a lengthy search trying over a dozen “normal” medical methods, Ben found a form of inner work and spiritual practice named Reality Check. Not only did Reality Check cue his illnesses where Western, Eastern and Integrative medicine could not, but it allowed him to find a joyful flow state from which he creates effortlessly and travels the world full time. Ben has now partnered with the founder of Reality Check to share the method that changed his life.
