The Business Hippy: Fear, anxiety and the power of asking for help

What’s up happies! How was your November?

We had a lovely few days at Meaning House where we welcomed a little tribe of changemakers from around Europe for some memorable experiences around Brighton — including a bike tour of some beautiful businesses and a VERY cold early morning swim with our friends at School of the Wild.


In this edition there’s some great new posts from our community members, a webinar all about facing your fears and Christmas parties coming out of our ears.


Overcoming fear and anxiety in business

This week’s webinar from the brilliant Shamash Alidina is available to watch on demand for the next seven days! Watch now to learn how guided mastery and habituation could help you overcome the fears that stand in your way.

What if it’s not all about the money?

Recovering accountant Gail Bainbridge offers some constructive advice on breaking the money = happiness cycle, and finding other ways of adding ‘wealth’ to your life.

Getting outside your own head

In this great post on our Medium publication, Emily Shipp highlights the value of asking for help, and how when you do that, wisdom and support comes your way in droves.

Make 2019 your year

Want to launch a new business or project? We’re looking for 20 budding entrepreneurs that want to bring their ideas to life in January as part of our next startup tribe. The first 10 to get accepted get a free copy of Seth Godin’s book Focus.

Christmas parties!

Last week had a lovely get together for Christmas with our London tribe, it was brilliant to see some old and new faces there. Our Brighton Christmas party is coming up next on the 20th of December, if you can make it, we’d love to see you there!

Today’s tip: Take time at the end of each day to think of 3 things that went well. This gratitude exercise has been proven to impact your happiness more than any other action.

Thanks for coming along with us on this journey.
See you in the new year!
