    30. Volume: Behind Closed Doors: The Different Sides of Self-Isolation

    Covid19 has essentially shut the entire world down. Streets are empty. Restaurants, bars and pubs that are usually full of life and laughter are suddenly silent. Schools are closed indefinitely, and family and friends aren’t able to embrace and hug freely without the fear of spreading the virus.  And we’re all struggling with self-isolation, but in completely different ways.

    This is The Psychology of Entrepreneurship,

    a highly produced audio documentary style, revealing series that follows Ronsley Vaz and his guests, as they strive to go inside & unravel the inner workings of the mind of an entrepreneur, artist, athlete, academic; to decipher what is the psychology of our decisions.

    If you are an entrepreneur and would like to understand why we do certain things in certain situations, and if small changes in thinking can deliver massive amounts of results in success and happiness, then this podcast is for you.

    In this very special volume of The Psychology of Entrepreneurship, Ronsley explores the topic of self-isolation and how it can affect people in very different ways. Using recent news clips and articles related to the Coronavirus pandemic, he helps us sort through all the specific circumstances families and individuals are now faced with, that may differ from our own.

    Ronsley focuses on those dealing with immune disorders that may leave them more vulnerable to the virus, those stuck in dangerous domestic violence situations, and other unique situations of isolation of those all over the world. 

    We know COVID19 has saturated the news waves and, although it’s not always healthy to immerse ourselves in an overload of media, take a few minutes to look at things from a slightly different perspective. And take care of yourself and those around you.

    Things touched on in this special volume:



    Primary Immune (PI) disorders and how those with PI are affected by the pandemic

    Severe Combined Immunodeficiency (SCID) and the John Travolta connection

    Medical Doctors’ explanations of what makes someone vulnerable to the virus

    Eye-opening current domestic violence statistics

    28. Volume: Dr Mark Goulston: The Smile Epidemic

    The world is rife with doom and gloom. Just switching on the TV or tuning into any social media feed you’ll see that there’s a blatant trend of negativity. What if we all made the effort to make this world a happier place? It starts with the simple question, “what made you smile today?” 

    This is The Psychology of Entrepreneurship,

    a highly produced audio documentary style, revealing series that follows Ronsley Vaz and his guests, as they strive to go inside & unravel the inner workings of the mind of an entrepreneur, artist, athlete, academic; to decipher what is the psychology of our decisions.

    If you are an entrepreneur (BTW we consider that mothers are the original entrepreneurs) and would like to understand why we do certain things in certain situations, and if small changes in thinking can deliver massive amounts of results in success and happiness, then this podcast is for you.

    Dr. Mark Goulston is one of a kind.

    He is best known for his 30+ years of experience as an interventional psychiatrist, trainer of FBI and police hostage negotiators and crisis specialist. Then add on his 15+ years of executive coaching and advising and it uniquely puts Mark in a position to help executives and decision-makers deal with risky situations while keeping them grounded in their heartfelt values. 

    Today, Dr. Goulston moves between multiple avenues. He utilises not only his medical and entrepreneurial background but his speaking and writing talents as well.  His book, Just Listen, ranked #1 in six Amazon/Kindle categories and became the basis of a 2010 PBS special. That’s pretty amazing.

    Forever active within the psychiatric community, Mark regularly puts pen to paper for the likes of Huffington Post, Psychology Today, Fast Company, the Business Insider and the Harvard Business Review

    Mark has been a familiar face on Oprah, The Today Show, The Phil Donahue Show, CNN, TEDx and hosted a PBS pledge drive special. You can also hear his dulcet tones on his own podcast “My Wakeup Call.”

    In this volume, Ronsley explores the reason why Mark took two non-consecutive medical leaves of absence before eventually completing his MD degree in 1976. They also deconstruct the power of smiling and why you should be following the new #WMYST movement. 

    Also in this volume, “The Smile Epidemic”



    Why Mark holds so much stock in the power of noticing people

    How compassion can move someone towards success

    Why Mark spoke the hard truth to a globally loved man on his deathbed

    What made you smile today?

    Why the little things are so important

    The gift that keeps on giving

    How suicide and despair are so tightly interlinked

    Volume 27: Emily Fletcher: Meditation is Medicine

    Stress can have so much power over us. As we try to navigate our high-stress lives, we can almost forgive ourselves for thinking that to accomplish more, we need to do more. But what if we did less? Your key to better performance may lie in practising the art of meditation. 

    This is The Psychology of Entrepreneurship,

    a highly produced audio documentary style, revealing series that follows Ronsley Vaz and his guests, as they strive to go inside & unravel the inner workings of the mind of an entrepreneur, artist, athlete, academic; to decipher what is the psychology of our decisions.

    If you are an entrepreneur (BTW we consider that mothers are the original entrepreneurs) and would like to understand why we do certain things in certain situations, and if small changes in thinking can deliver massive amounts of results in success and happiness, then this podcast is for you.

    For her whole life, Emily dreamed of being on Broadway.

    Low and behold, that day finally came. She became the performer she always wanted to be by age 22. The gruelling schedules along with the intense mental and physical stress led her down a spiralling path of insomnia, illness and consistent injuries. 

    It was time for a drastic change.

    After taking a short meditation course, the effects were so powerful, that she felt inspired and compelled to share it with others.

    Now, Emily is the founder of Ziva Meditation and the leading expert in meditation for extraordinary performance. It’s a trifecta of mental tools surrounding mindfulness, meditation and manifesting. Used by the world’s top performers, Emily and her team have helped over 20,000 students, including Oscar, Grammy, Emmy and Tony award winners, NBA players, Fortune 500 CEOs, busy parents and entrepreneurs.

    Her book Stress Less, Accomplish More debuted at #7 out of all books on Amazon, and has sold over 50,000 copies in less than a year. The New York Times, Good Morning America, The Today Show, Vogue and ABC News have all featured Emily’s work.

    In this volume, Emily and Ronsley explore why meditation is such a powerful medicine, and why Emily’s practices are heading down Sesame Street. They also examine the emerging science behind stress relief and how we’ve all inherited our stress, but it’s not as bad as you think. 

    Also featured within this volume, “Meditation is Medicine”



    Who is Emily Fletcher?

    Why heaven is inside us, not a destination

    How you’ve inherited the blueprint for your health

    Why we’re really so reluctant to meditate

    How meditation apps don’t quite hit the spot

    Emily’s view on inherited trauma

    How stress is making us stupid, sick and slow

    The up and down energy and slowing down

    The differences between mindfulness and meditation

    Why engaging in manifestation doesn’t get you off the hook

    Volume 26: Noom Dara: What’s Your Legacy?

    Volume 26: Noom Dara: What’s Your Legacy?

    The life of a business owner is undoubtedly mercurial. When we enter into turbulent times, the way we act is what can define our legacy. While business success comes and goes, it’s in the value you create that is most important. So, how do you want to be remembered? 

    This is The Psychology of Entrepreneurship,

    a highly produced audio documentary style, revealing series that follows Ronsley Vaz and his guests, as they strive to go inside & unravel the inner workings of the mind of an entrepreneur, artist, athlete, academic; to decipher what is the psychology of our decisions.

If you would like to understand why we do certain things in certain situations, as well as whether small changes in thinking can deliver massive amounts of returns in success and happiness, then this podcast is for you.

    Noom Dara has always been destined for entrepreneurial greatness.

    In this volume, we go inside the mind of the creator of Thailand's leading supplier for medical equipment. Nanthiya Darakananda, also known as Noom Dara, was fated to become an entrepreneur. 

    Noom grew up in a large family of business owners. From his mother's successful sales office in the US to his father's factories in Thailand; he has consistently been surrounded by entrepreneurial energy. 

    After receiving a bachelor's degree in Applied Physics from the University of California, Noom went on to work alongside his father in Thailand. It was during this time that he quickly realised he wanted to follow his own path and become his own boss.

    Today, his sole mission is in improving people’s quality of life in a meaningful way. 

    Since 1994, he has been the CEO of Winnergy Medical, the distributor and importer of Medical equipment and devices. Always the innovator, he is also the Director of Saha-Union Public Company Limited. His other ventures include  Venus Gas Technology Co Ltd and others.

    Volume 25: Coronavirus: Misinformation Gone Viral

    Volume 25: Coronavirus: Misinformation Gone Viral

    Life as we know it will never be the same again.

    As the dawn of a new decade came up over the horizon, how were we to know that everyone’s way of life was drastically about to change?

    The highly infectious Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is quickly putting the world on lockdown, affecting the way we connect, work, communicate and interact. What is also spreading at a far quicker rate is life-threatening misinformation, conspiracy theories and damaging innuendos.

    This is The Psychology of Entrepreneurship,

    a highly produced audio documentary series that follows Ronsley Vaz and his guests, as they strive to go inside and unravel the inner workings of the mind of an entrepreneur, artist, athlete, academic; to decipher what is the psychology of our decisions.

    In this volume, I’ve taken the opportunity to use my voice as a force for good. 

    We’re taking the time to dissect what is going on around the planet, and how we can all do our part to stay properly informed about COVID-19. 

    As it stands today, the basic information we do know about the Coronavirus (COVID-19) is:



    In a matter of months, it has transformed the world. Thousands of people have already died, and hundreds of thousands more have fallen ill. 

    The way it spreads is primarily through contact with an infected person. 

    The common symptoms are fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties. 

    The more severe cases can cause pneumonia, acute respiratory syndrome, or even death. 

    Good hygiene practices and safeguarding measures such as self-isolating are essential if we all want to play a role in slowing down this pandemic.



    While this is now common knowledge, there are still so many more questions that need answering.

    How do we eradicate it? Is what I’m hearing fact or hearsay? What can I do in the fight against this disease? How can I safeguard my future? 

    In this volume, of Psychology of Entrepreneurship, we zoom out of our current state of self-isolation and look at how the world’s leaders and its citizens are contending with the virus. Ronsley explores why we desperately need those in power to spread the truth, not conspiracies, and why it’s okay to be anxious in these uncertain times.



    Also within this volume, ‘Misinformation Gone Viral’:



    The way the world has changed

    The new epicentre of the pandemic

    The world as we know it and normalcy bias

    How to sift through “facts” to find the truth

    Why we should all be calling people out on spreading misinformation

    The steps you should take when digesting or sharing information

    Bill Gate’s unnerving premonition 

    What you probably need to hear right now

This Is A Must Listen Podcast.

When I first heard about this podcast I thought, ‘it should be interesting, I like Psychology’, but OH MY GOD it is far better than I imagined. Totally blew my mind with how well produced it is, there’s nothing like it, and the guests are fantastic. If you’re searching for a new podcast to devour, this is the one you need to get your teeth into. DEFINITE 10 out of 10.
