Marcus Couch


In this episode of WordPress Weekly, Marcus Couch and I are joined by Cory Miller, founder of iThemes. Miller discusses his entrepreneurship journey and shares in detail, how he maintains his mental health.

We learn that people battling mental health are not alone and that it’s ok to ask for help. Miller explains how seeing a counselor four times a year helps him maintain his mental health. We also discuss coping mechanisms that might work for those not interested in seeing a counselor.

For more background on this episode, I highly encourage you to watch his presentation at WordCamp Denver 2015, on mental health. Also, check out his slides on slideshare that are filled with motivational messages.

I apologize for the audio quality in this episode. Miller was in New Mexico on a spotty WiFi connection that seemed to get worse as the show went on. You can download a transcript of the episode here.
