Because nothing f**ks up your startup faster than running out of happiness.

In 2004 Bonny experienced burnout in one of his startups. This burnout started his own journey of personal growth, an interest in mental health in the startup world and the effects it has on the businesses and stakeholders.

He became passionate about helping others navigate the challenges of building a successful business through prioritizing their mental health and well-being.

Through his own experiences, Bonny realized the importance of having a support system and guidance from someone who understands the unique challenges of being a startup founder. As a result, he decided to use his knowledge and experience to help other entrepreneurs and startup founders achieve their business goals while maintaining a sustainable high performance work-life balance.
