338: The Science of Beating Burnout and How to Maximize Performance with Sharon Grossman
This week’s Misfit Entrepreneur is Dr. Sharon Grossman. Sharon is a psychologist, success coach, and keynote speaker who’s an expert in Emotional Intelligence. She’s also the author of the best-selling book, the 7E Solution to Burnout and hosts the podcast, Decode Your Burnout.
She’s helped hundreds of high performing entrepreneurs learn to be more product and avoid or even recover from burnout. Through her simple and effective methodology she teaches how to have a competitive advantage that wins in business, minimizes stress, and helps you experience life on your terms because winning is non-negotiable.
Burnout and taking on too much affects most entrepreneurs at some point in their journey and I’ve been looking for an expert to come on and help us in learning to recognize it, better manage it, and if possible avoid while still making it happen for our businesses – so I was excited to get Sharon on.
Sharon is a clinically trained psychologist who practiced therapy for 20 years. She noticed a common theme with clients being highly stressed and started to do more research on burnout which is chronic stress. She listened to her clients with a different ear recognizing burnout. And in sharing this with them, it would create “aha moments” helping them to understand their challenges.
When we understand what we are experienced in life, it helps to diagnose it to help us solve challenges in front of us.
At the 6 min mark, Sharon tells a story about when she was grad student and hearing a speaker talking about solo practitioners burning out in the field. When she go into her own business, she remembered the talk and vowed not to be a statistic, so she set up her business around the life she wanted to have.
“You have to think about what you need in order to sustain yourself.” It is about mindset and believing it is important enough to make it happen when it comes to stopping burnout.
How does someone psychologically break out of their bad habits and “comfort” with the state of burnout that they live in?
At the 15 min market, Sharon and I have a discussion on our conditioning and subconscious.
What should we know about burnout? What are the signs?
3 Different Burnout Profiles. What are they? (Sharon give great detail, so it is good to listen)
Once we realize which of the types we are, what do we do about it?
In the end, you must change what you believe to truly make meaningful changes to help yourself.

Misfit Nation, this episode is brought to you by Benchmark email. When we were starting Misfit, one of the things we knew that was critical was getting the right email marketing system in place to manage our newsletters, responders, and keep track of all of subscribers and their needs. After all being able to communicate with you is our most important job!
So we started testing out a number of the systems out there and tried out 8 different ones including the most popular ones you’ve heard of. But none of them had the total package. We wanted something that could fulfill all our needs in one platform, was easy to use and manage, and that had a great mobile experience for doing things on the go.
After a lot of frustration, we found Benchmark and it was exactly what we were looking for! On top of that, they have amazing customer service and are willing to think outside the box with you for your needs.
After experiencing them, I said, “We’ve got to tell Misfit Nation about this!” and approached Benchmark to see if they could give something special to Misfit Nation. They really stepped up.
