This is a paid piece from Selah Space.
Simplified: Being an entrepreneur can be lonely, but it doesn't have to be. Selah Space Owner Jada Dobesh is working to create a space for entrepreneurs to not only get some work done but also to take a step back and practice listening.
Why it matters:
- Dobesh started this group because she realized everyone she knew who was running a business was also just stressed out all the time.
- It's structured to take place one day a month, so it's not an overwhelming time commitment.
- Entrepreneurial Wellness Group members also become Selah Space members, which means more room to work on wellness in areas outside of work, too.
"I think it's kind of trendy for you to complain about how hard owning a business is and how lonely it is," Dobesh said. "But it is only lonely because you're not talking to other business owners."
How does it work?
Once a month, members of the Entrepreneurial Wellness Group (EWG, for short) will gather at Selah Space.
The day starts with coffee, tea and 90 minutes of work intended to help you get done a task you've been putting off.
The next hour and a half will be dedicated to group spiritual direction.
"It's creating space for really powerful listening from an entire group of people," Dobesh said.
Then the group will have lunch and explore a topic, usually hearing from a speaker tailored to what the group needs. Dobesh's first topic will be the enneagram.
