Bellingen Chamber of Commerce

Bellingen Chamber Event: Well-being for small business owners – Wednesday 21st March

12 Mar

Running your own business can be exciting and rewarding. It can give you autonomy and allow you to unleash your creativity and autonomy, both of which nourish our sense of wellbeing. However, small business owners work some of the longest hours in the country, often with little support or back up, so not surprisingly they can also experience high levels of stress and burnout. Your personal sustainability is essential for your business’ sustainability, so how can you protect it?


In this highly interactive presentation, personal sustainability specialist Thea O’Connor will explore with you:


– what the research shows about the health and wellbeing of small business owners (bring your phone as we will run some live polls to see how national stats compare to the Bellingen business community)


– critical risks and protective factors for business owners’ health


– principles of sustainable energy for humans that give you the keys to your own renewable sources of energy, enhancing your professional capabilities as well as inoculating yourself against burnout


– ideas for applying this information to your daily life



When: Wednesday 21st March 2018, 5.30pm to 7.00pm
Where: Cedar Bar & Kitchen (8 Church St)
