Mindset Limitations: Pursuing Happiness

When we hear the words “mindset limitations” we often think about our beliefs, conscious or unconscious, that constrain the way we see, think, and feel the world around us. These beliefs affect our present reality and also impact what we can envision for the future and the possibilities we chose to explore. Often, we are… Continue reading Mindset Limitations: Pursuing Happiness

Mindset Shifts in Productivity, Balance and Entrepreneurship (with Monique Y. Wells)

In this episode, I had the pleasure to interview Monique Y. Wells. Monique is a productivity expert, and loves to coach women entrepreneurs who want their businesses to support their ideal lifestyles. Monique writes regularly for the Huffington Post. There she published recently a three-article series where she interviewed several entrepreneurs in the “expert arena” – coaches, consultants, authors, speakers, online marketers – about their experiences of six or seven figure business growth. This interview focused on mindset shifts around productivity, balance and entrepreneurship (namely what usually happen for the solo-preneurs to be able to survive the start-up phase, and grow their business to the six or seven figure mark.)

Do You Have A Sandbox?

For many of you, last week’s episode was very conceptual with no practical application. I want to celebrate that 🙂 It’s essential to have activities that don’t seem to have practical applications, or use business language, with no tangible Return Of Investment – ROI. We know that children need to play to learn new skills… Continue reading Do You Have A Sandbox?

The Power of YET – A Growth Mindset Secret

The idea behind this podcast is that our mindsets determine the way we see the world. And, because it’s so easy to stay stuck in Fixed Mindsets, that prevents us from learning new things, it’s vital to intentionally cultivate Growth Mindsets. These concepts of Fixed and Growth Mindsets are based on the work of Carol… Continue reading The Power of YET – A Growth Mindset Secret

If you are trying to make a difference – with whatever you are doing at this moment in your life – do you see age as an advantage or a disadvantage? Today, in our western society, a common belief is that as we age, our opportunities to make a difference diminish. Often we rationalize our… Continue reading Age is an Advantage
