Fund81 in 2020 and Lessons from a Bout of Holiday Depression

In this latest Fund81 podcast episode, I share my 2020 plans for the Fund81 forum and podcast, and a few reflections from my short bout of holiday depression.

Despite the fact that I have a wonderful life with many blessings to be thankful for, I have always struggled with depression over the holidays. Because of the work I’ve been doing in Conscious Leadership, my holiday depression was shorter and less biting than ever before. I also better understand the causes of my depression. However, my depression still reared its ugly head. I’m sharing some of the lessons I learned from this experience in hopes that it might help others who struggle with holiday depression and depression in general.

A few of the articles I mentioned in the episode are as follows:

How Conscious Leadership Saves Me Five Hours Each Day
Using the Enneagram in Venture Capital Investing
How 75 Days of Skiing Made Me a Better Venture Capitalist
When Giving First Gets to Be Too Much
Mental Health in Venture Capital with Brad Feld

If you could benefit from the work we do in Conscious Leadership, join us for Camp. It’s radically changed every aspect of my life. I highly recommend it. 

Onward.
