Check out episode 518 of "Cool Things Entrepreneurs Do" as Thom Singer interviews Dr. Margaret Rutherford, the author of "Perfectly Hidden Depression". 
 
Dr. Margaret Rutherford has been a psychologist in private practice for over twenty-five years. She began writing online in 2012, and was just narcissistic enough to believe that she might have something fresh or funny to say about what she'd learned.
 
Since that time, she has launched three different versions of her website. She begun a podcast called SelfWork with Dr. Margaret Rutherford. She created monthly FaceBook Lives for The Mighty. And now she is excited to announce that her book, entitled "Perfectly Hidden Depression: How to Break Free from the Perfectionism that Masks Your Depression", was released in November of 2019.
 
Dr. Margaret Rutherford been researching and writing on this topic of hidden depression for five years, and she is passionate about the message that although depression can be heavily masked by perfectionism, it’s damage can still be devastating to that someone who’s trying so hard to smile their way through growing loneliness and despair.Along the way, she met many authors, researchers, bloggers, and psychologists. She  has written for HuffPost, The Mighty, Psych Central, The Gottman Blog, Psychologies, StigmaFighters, The Good Men Project, This Is My Brave, and others as she has spread a passionate message about becoming more comfortable with vulnerability in every day life, and confronting the prejudice against not only mental illness itself, but its treatment.
 
In this episode of Cool Things Entrepreneurs Do, Margaret Rutherford tells here story of starting her career as singer, and her transition to helping people with their mental health issues (I am sure as a singer she had the same impact for many!). The interview will explore the mental health issues for entrepreneurs, and others. 
 
Thom was excited to interview her, as they met online four years ago when he was dealing with some issues and ran across some of her online articles.  She was writing "Perfectly Hidden Depression" at the time they met, and her concepts for the book resonated with him and helped him see his own areas to work on in his life.
