As an adult, I struggled to create meaningful friendships. I got married and had kids very young, unlike any of my friends from high school or college. And then I moved across the country where I didn’t know anyone.
I felt lonely for most of my 20s, while at home with babies and toddlers. Friendships looked so easy for everyone else, and I couldn’t figure out what was wrong with me.
The first life coach I ever worked with helped me learn how to build meaningful, real friendships as an adult. This still remains one of the most valuable transformations I’ve ever received from coaching.
As an entrepreneur, things can be even trickier. Many of your “civilian” friends may not understand what you’re doing, and with entrepreneur friends, it’s easy to feel triggered, jealous, or inadequate when they are succeeding. Comparison is a very real struggle and can shake many friendships.
On this week’s episode of the Online Business Building Mamas podcast, I’ve invited my best friend, Kristen Boss, on to talk about our friendship. What you’ll hear is the real me, opening up honestly with one of my closest friends.
