Self-Care for Entrepreneurs Based on Marketing Personality Type®

There are countless ways to practice self-care, and as entrepreneurs, self-care may be more important than ever. We often have so much riding on our performance that it can be easy to let burnout creep in as self-care moves farther and farther from our minds.

But if we don’t practice self-care as entrepreneurs, how can we expect our businesses to be taken care of?

To help you identify and begin a self-care practice for yourself, I’ve curated a list of self-care practices for entrepreneurs like you, based on your personality type. Because, just like everything else, self-care isn’t a one-size-fits-all.
