From School to Work: The Power of Vulnerable Communication about Mental Health

mental health conversation with Jennifer Clements

“Why don’t we take away the state testing and add a mental health program? Because our society is going to benefit from being taught how to handle an anxiety feeling versus how to take a stupid test.”

— Jennifer Wells


Listen to the complete episode here:

According to a study from the National Institute of Mental Health, 72% of entrepreneurs are directly or indirectly affected by mental health issues compared to just 48% of non-entrepreneurs. But maintaining your mental health while keeping your business running doesn’t have to be a burden you carry on your own.

 

Meet Jennifer Wells (LinkedIn), Co-Owner of Clements Electric in Texas and Founder of League of Contractors (website). Jennifer knows how hard entrepreneurship (and life in general) can be on one’s mental health… that’s why she started League of Contractors! League of Contractors was built by contractors for contractors. It’s a free app that hosts a group of home service professionals that supports and refers work to one another. Work referrals are made in the app and contractors only have to pay if they choose to receive a referral. 

 

Referrals are sent to only ONE contractor, so there are no competing contractors to get leads. This app makes sure customers don’t feel like they are being overwhelmed by multiple contractors and gives contractors the chance to build their business with less hassle and effort.

”Let’s face it, we’re not raising kids, we’re raising adults. We’re not raising children to go out into the world and be children, we’re raising children to be adults. If we do not raise them adequately engage in their environment, they’re never going to succeed… so you’ve got to build the relationship of communication with them.” — Jennifer Clements

 

“Do “against the grain” things because that’s where your successes are because when you’re going against the grain, you’re making a mark and if you’re making a mark, you’re gonna stand out.” — Jennifer Clements Click To Tweet
