Handling Stress and Indecision

Handling Stress-Deborah Johnson

In January of 2024, Brian Chesky was rated the 232nd richest person in the world, according to Forbes and some of his success can be attributed to handling stress. In October 2007 the Industrial Designers Society of America was hosting a conference in San Francisco and all the hotel rooms were booked. Brian and his friend Joe couldn’t afford their rent for the month and decided to rent their apartment for money. After purchasing three air mattresses, they marketed their idea as “Airbed and Breakfast” with three guests staying the first night. 

They knew they had hit upon a giant big idea worth pursuing but investors refused to give them money to develop it. They got two bookings during the SXSW conference (South by Southwest) in March 2008, then in August their Airbed and Breakfast website launched in time for the Democratic National Convention to get 80 bookings. They were on their way.

It is inspiring to read about successful entrepreneurs but many struggle through anxiety and discouragement and have to become adept at handling stress. Toby Thomas, CEO of EnSite Solutions explains his favorite analogy: a man riding a lion. We see this and think, “This man is so brave! He’s got it together!” But the man riding the lion is wondering how he’s going to keep from getting eaten! Stress and even indecision are common issues most entrepreneurs face. We will cover five principles of handling stress and indecision that will help most any listener or reader to apply for success.
