«Compelling story, wonderful writing, courageous honesty
and an important cautionary tale about Burnout.  
Enthusiastically recommended!»
David Posen, M.D., Author of Is Work Killing You?

BURNOUT DIARIES is the gritty, personal account of Janna Donovan, a marketing
manager who found herself battling burnout in a foreign country. It details the
distrust, shame, secrecy, and over-work that eventually led to panic events,
depression, and plans for suicide.

The story reads more like a novel than a business book. It's funny and tragic and
“Did she really go there?” rolled into one fascinating true story, making the pain
at once recognizable and the advice actionable.

The wisdom and lessons are wrapped in an explosive package of honesty and
secret-busting revelations. One minute, it reads like a travel guide, with up close
and personal memories of exotic places. The next minute, it is intimate and
tender, letting the reader in on every thought and anxious emotion at home and
at the office. Finally, when the dust settles and the danger has passed, the advice
is smart, realistic and based in a sincere understanding of human development
and brain science.

This book is based on Janna Donovan's personal diaries, so it is different from
other business stress books. Empathy and compassion jump off the page as the
author outs herself, broken heart and all.

Janna is a successful business manager who has worked for a multi-national
company, a .com startup, and an established retailer. She now works in her
own counseling practice, helping individuals with high amounts of work stress and
worry. She left business to become a licensed counselor and work stress
therapist, after seeing firsthand what anxiety disorders, depression and burnout
do to people.

She shares what she went through and works to answer the question, «Why am I
like this?” See how she developed more confidence, courage and clearer thinking.
See how she kicked her work stress habits for good.

Her experience can help you break up with anger, resentment, anxiety and guilt.
