Called “innovative and inspiring” by the American Counseling Association, licensed therapist, and entrepreneur Bea Arthur has become a leader in the field of mental healthcare.
With the goal of transforming traditional therapy into a more affordable and approachable experience, she created In Your Corner which provides instant, expert support when you need it.
She is a Columbia University alum and TEDx speaker, has been featured in Elle, MTV, Fast Company, Entrepreneur Magazine, Huffington Post, VentureBeat, NPR, and CNN. She was also named part of the New Guard of women in tech by Marie Claire magazine, an Entrepreneur to Bet on by Newsweek, and is a frequent contributor on Fox & Friends.
Bea is also the first African American woman to be accepted into the prestigious Y Combinator accelerator program.
In This Episode, You Will Learn:
- Why Bea felt it was necessary to bring her model of therapy to the online space
- The source of Bea’s Confidence
- The importance of online therapy/coaching
- How Bea’s bout with sickness and surgery shifted her stance on self-care
“Anytime you do something out of obligation it’s something you should switch right away.”
“You’re not meant to live your life for other people out of obligation, you should live your life for other people out of joy.”
“I am actively leisurely.”
“You can either hold on or get dragged.”
The rigors of expanding her business coupled with fibroid removal surgery caused Bea to reevaluate the way she served herself and her business. Her new mantra, do less.
Daily Self-Care Ritual
Spending time alone, which helps her to restore her energy reserves.
