Episode #82 Working Through Social Anxiety

September 17, 2021


Your business and life may be harder than it is for most people if you live with Social Anxiety. It doesn't have to be. You can have an easier, safer feeling experience.

Social anxiety affects 3 of the 5 Essential elements of wellbeing:  Career, Social & Community.  

As an employee, you may find jobs that limit your exposure to other people.  But, it also limits your job opportunities. As an entrepreneur, you can create a business with very limited exposure to people.  But you’ll struggle to start your business, grow your business, meet customers and make sales.

As an individual, loneliness may bring about additional emotional pain.  Or the panic attacks may become so severe, you can’t function.

This episode provides safe steps for reducing Social Anxiety.  I include a case study of my 12-year-old autistic daughter and her panic attack after a bullying incident.


In this episode, we talk about:

  • what is social anxiety?
  • how do you get through social anxiety?
  • how can you help other people overcome social anxiety?
  • my 12-year-old autistic daughter’s experience with bullying and social anxiety at school.
  • centering yourself on your strong why.
  • what life after social anxiety could be like!
