The reason why I ask is just the nature of this business. To quit your job, and start a business. To work and work and not having a punch out time. Most people would never take on such a risk. Why do we? When you reach burn out, then that may be a good time to go talk to someone. I have a buddy of mine that worked to much, that he went through two marriage's. After his second marriage he went and talked to someone. Therapy can get to the point of whats going on in your head. Are we all control freak's to some point? I know for me, I hate people telling me what do do. When I had a boss, I hated it. If a customer starts getting bossy for an extended period of time, I almost always consider dropping them.

I think ones people saw Tony Soprano going in and talking to someone, it made it kind of ok. I had to laugh when he said, going to therapy is like taking a crap. You unload all kinds of crap swimming around in your head I think he meant.

Just because you go to therapy doesn't mean your crazy.

I think you are right to some extent. A business owner needs to be somewhat controlling. You won't make it in business being a passive person.
The key though is knowing when to draw the line. I tell Matt all the time he is way too controlling at home, that he needs help.. He gets mad at me. ;)
Me on the other hand, I doubt would benefit from therapy. I'm as right in the head as they come. :laugh:
I'm sure though I could recommend a few people for the couch. ;)

I think running your own business and taking control of your life as much as possible is a form of therapy...

Therapy is nothing to be afraid of, my friend.
It saved my marriage and gave me the self respect to be in this busines today.
After all it's better to go at the risk of saying that the shrink was nothing more than bull****, than to not go at the risk of turning you marriage or business into bull****.
I'm thankfull I went.

WOW, you must be reading the same books I'm reading. I agree. TAKE CONTROL OF YOU LIFE and be responsible.

Yup, can't even read that question without openly admitting it.
In business, I think I take it a little too far at times also.
It can be a friend or foe....

I would go in a heartbeat. To have someone listen to me and all my headaches and then try to improve me sounds good to me. So why don't I go? $100 bucks an hour or whatever it cost. For now my two best friends (the dogs) will have to do.

last sentence--I agree. but when you quote TONY SOPRANO and relate that to real life I think you may be coo-coo.

well, I've seen the shrink a few times, but that had to do with the ex wife. doing the work i do and running that mower is great therapy for me. one up from that would be coming to this forum and have a laugh at what Bobby has to say.This forum is probably good therapy for us all....... :D :D :D

Respectfully,

Is that how much it costs? Geez I wonder if its a write off. Iv been thinking about getting some dogs.

Tony Soprano isn't real life? haha

Also good therapy is having a few beers with the guys. I get lots of crap off my chest when were playing cards and venting. The only problem with the guys, is there bi-est. They wont necessary tell you what you need to here. They tell you what you want to here.

Yea, I'll admit I tried to go to a couple af different shrinks a few times. Always ended up leaving VERY PISSED! I tried to go for an education on how to deal with my problems and situation, ALWAYS ended up with some sort of prescription that I didn't want. Even tried a couple - the side effects are horrendous. Quit that REAL quick. Even had one go so far as to tell me "I can't help you if you don't take your medication" - got up and walked out of his office right then. Appointments are supposed to last an hour right? Wrong! - I've been excused after 25 min - "Go take your drugs, I'll see you in a month" sheesh!

So - I wish you better luck than I had.

Bunch of drug pushing quacks is what I say!

I tried that for a while.... marriage problems I won't go into. Didn't seem to help me any and I don't know if it was just a coincidence or not but the woman counselor got devoiced a few months later. LOL

Cutting grass is therapy for me. After some days at the firehouse, it's just what I need.

Nope. I have no problems that I would need therapy for. I have the best job in the world. No boss standing over me screaming at me all the time. I come and go as I please. I'm responsible for my destiny, I don't rely on others for my paycheck. I see all the working sheep out there with miserable jobs and unhappy lives and I'm more than thankful for what I have.

I could stand to lose a few pounds, but other than that I'm good to go.

:D

I was almost going to recommend therapy to someone I was helping out today. Wasn't getting paid, I was doing a favor.

I was backing my truck into his driveway to dump some dirt. Well hes out there yelling at me to CUT MY WHEELS THIS WAY.....NO THAT WAY!! NO, NO, NO. NOW YOU NEED TO GO A HEAD AND STRAITEN OUT!! I said I'm just going to dump the dirt somewhere else. Then he yelled I COULD DO IT.

The whole time I knew what was doing. I had everything in my mirrors. Then he said, ITS HARD ISN'T IT. I said no not really in a kind of annoyed tone of voice. Then he turned around and went into the house.Then I proceeded to back up all my my self with out hitting anything, and dump the dirt where they wanted it. THE MAN NEEDS THERAPY.

His wife was very nice and I dealt with her the rest of the time.
