Will is an award winning, independent video producer living with anxiety and depression. In this episode of Silent Superheroes, Will talks about the benefits and drawbacks of being self-employed, and the pressures of the work environment that drove him to go out on his own. He shares how anxiety distorts his ability to be confident in his work. We discuss the importance of finding the right therapist and by looking through Will’s eyes I see business travel in a new light.
