Founders Meetup: Combating Entrepreneurial Burnout w/Kristen Prater

June 9, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Join us for our monthly Founders Meetup for pizza and an engaging topic geared towards startups and entrepreneurs!

Combating Entrepreneurial Burnout: Let’s face it – if you own a business you tend to do all the things, at least at first. It’s difficult to navigate what aspects of your business can be entrusted to others. It’s imperative that we learn how to allocate appropriate amounts of time to grow and run our business while also taking care of ourselves, thus avoiding entrepreneurial burnout. Join us to learn how and why you need to combat it!

Kristen Prater is the owner and founder of 9 to 5 Office, a virtual assistance agency based in Johnson City. Kristen started her agency in response to a need for businesses to move online during the pandemic. Since then, 9 to 5 continues to grow and is proud to support other small businesses. Kristen has the support of her husband, Joe, an HVAC business owner and daughter Ellie, who is primed to take over 9 to 5 Office one day.


Founders Meetup is all about bringing Entrepreneurs, and those curious about Startups, together to share ideas while learning from each other. Some sessions have guest speakers and others have a topic of discussion the attendees focus on.
