Learn how to transform your daily entrepreneurial stresses into creative action.

An insightful and interactive conversation at the crossroads of entrepreneurship and cutting-edge leadership psychology. Because the faster your company grows, the faster you need to grow.


What if you could feel balanced even while you ride the daily roller coaster of entrepreneurship?

In this masterclass you will learn the fundamental secret to being a resilient leader. You will uncover the sources of your entrepreneurial stress and learn how to transform your worries (e.g. growth rates, fundraising) into innovation and new possibilities using a growth mindset, one of the most coveted leadership traits by top investors.


  • Be a more balanced and resilient leader
  • See more possibilities and significantly improve your judgement and decision making
  • Reduce worry and anxiety thoughts
  • Reduce feelings of burnout and overwhelm


  • The best entrepreneurs experience stress. It’s their relationship to stress that differentiates them
  • If you are not feeling fear as an entrepreneur, you are either full of ____, not playing a big enough game, or an enlightened zen master
  • Stress significantly affects our judgment and decision making
  • Most of your worries will never happen
  • Neuroscience and leadership psychology is fascinating

By the end of this training, it is our hope that your entrepreneurial rollercoaster will begin to feel like the blue rollercoaster

Meet Your Facilitator & Expert Behind the Content

In this training, you will learn scientifically evidenced practices and techniques developed by one of our co-founders, Justin Milano. Justin helps exceptional entrepreneurs build thriving companies. As a serial entrepreneur and executive coach, Justin uses a unique blend of business coaching and leadership psychology to help entrepreneurs create breakthroughs and fulfill their maximum potential. Justin has deep experience in the arts of raising capital and forming strategic partnerships. He currently coaches and advises founders and CEO’s at rapidly growing startups including Thrive Market, Local Measure, Voyaj, the Global Accelerator Network, and others.

Justin is currently traveling the world speaking at top accelerators, incubators, and universities about the “human journey of entrepreneurship.” The stories and interviews he is capturing on the road are being included in a new book he is co-authoring with his co-founder Daniel Cordaro from the Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence, as well as a documentary series he is producing alongside his senior partner Tim Peek who is a 4-time Emmy award-winning journalist.

Venture Capitalist Testimonial:

“The entrepreneurs journey is as much about battling our own dragons (fears, pressures, insecurities, etc.) as it is about external product/market fit, competitive advantage, etc. While many resources exist for sales force optimization, talent recruiting, fundraising and other core areas, few exist to address these other even more critical factors affecting founders and their teams.

Good Startups brings a rare mixture of leading theory with real world experience and DNA to provide startups the support they need to succeed in even the most trying situations. For companies that embrace and master these, they will have a significant advantage over their competitors.”
