Hello again, Self-Made Nation!


Today I want to ask you something: Do you have the tendency to take the weight of the world on your shoulders🏋️?


It’s your idea, your business. It can be a hefty weight to think about how to pull it all together, especially in these COVID-19 times.


On this episode of “I’m a Millionaire! So Now What?” I reflect on being a lonely leader and an interview I held towards the end of 2019 with leadership and success coach Heather Petherick . We discussed the 6 reasons that leaders can feel lonely and isolated. See how many apply to you…


  • In my quest to be authentic, I avoid getting too close to competitors or potential colleagues 😩
  • I intentionally isolate to protect my ideas from competitors and critics
  • I want to shield others from my problems or concerns
  • I need to be strong 💪 – I am a leader and can’t show my own insecurities
  • I’m too tired🥱 and busy to find a mentor or support
  • I’ll get support when I (earn xxx), if I (meet this target), sometime soon (someday, not now)


Can you relate to any of these? Have a listen 👂👂 to find out if you’re unintentionally choosing the lonely leadership path.
