The ‘High Achieving Woman’ Syndrome

There is an epidemic happening with women becoming high achievers in entrepreneurship.

Studies are showing that this epidemic is making woman, stressed, gain weight and depressed.

In todays episode on the Herpreneur Wellness Show, we will be talking about the high-achieving woman who loves to win her ‘own race’, she has high expectations on herself and sets her standards high.

The high achieving woman is so driven in succeeding because deep within she feels a strong pull, it’s a calling that she is here for a higher purpose.

The challenging thing is no matter what is on her plate in life, she does whatever it takes to succeed and make it happen.

Her mind doesn’t stop.

She is continually consumed with that next move; or how to dominate more in her market or industry.

Her success is like an addiction.

She thrives off it!

The buzz from the adrenaline keeps her going but not for long…

As there is a penalty she pays as time goes on.
