Is it possible to run a successful business without sacrificing your mental and physical health?
Most business owners and leaders have a habit of overcoming their company’s challenges at the expense of their own wellbeing. They work long hours, try to do too many things, and struggle to reconcile the excitement of the early days with the stress and exhaustion they feel now. Their businesses may be profitable, but those profits have come at a high personal cost. In other words, they’ve run up an emotional overdraft.
If this is you, you can be sure that not only is this damaging for your health, it’s also masking some of the issues that need to be resolved in your business. Because reducing your emotional overdraft is as much of a lifesaver for your company as it is for you.
While it’s common to feel this way, it’s not inevitable. This book explains why you’ve run up an emotional overdraft and how you can reduce it, so that you can create a healthier relationship with your business, your loved ones, and yourself. In the process, you’ll be helping your company to thrive in ways you could never imagine — and without having to try so hard.

Wellbeing is a vital resource to organisations seeking to thrive. That resource is increasingly undervalued and misunderstood for leaders and managers. Andy Brown’s book eloquently, effectively and evidentially rights that wrong. Essential reading for today’s leaders.
