What if we were not alone as entrepreneurs, artists, athletes & creatives?



We are trained to believe that if we are not doing something productive at every moment of every day that we are failing, that we are being left behind. That we are not working towards success.



The Psychology of Entrepreneurship, hosted by Ronsley Vaz, brings to the public discussion insights from New York Times bestselling authors, founders of multi-million dollar companies, Olympic athletes, clinical psychologists, professors, high profile musicians and performing artists.



Ronsley and his guests will cover every perspective and angle there is on the internal workings that happen in the mind of an Entrepreneur.



Through conversations with these guest experts, whether they are jet fighter pilots or athletes or singers or entrepreneurs, we will find out why we believe that we're not good enough. Why we sell ourselves short on the things that we've done. To discover what really is imposter syndrome?



In a society that makes you conform to all sorts of structures, standing out and being yourself is a rebellious act. There's never been a better time for you to be yourself.



If you are an entrepreneur, artist, athlete or creative, one who makes something that didn't exist before, then this is for you. Become a FIRST RESPONDER - go to mustamplify.com/poe and click the button.

    Ronsley Vaz  

    Previously on the psychology of entrepreneurship.

    Bri Seeley  

    I can't possibly charge that much. Why not? Other people charge that much? Why can't you charge that much? When I'm presented with an opportunity, the filter through which I pass it through is does this align with that bigger picture vision? If I say yes to this is it bringing me closer to that bigger picture vision. I was so burnt out all the time, because I was constantly focused on external metrics, and I was constantly placing my worth my value my success on things that were outside of my control. This nefarious man, like the brain works and f****d up,

    Ronsley

    Hi. Its Ronsley. If this is your first Volume, Welcome. This is a weekly series where I go inside the mind of an entrepreneur, artist, athlete, academic; to decipher what is the psychology of our decisions.

    I’m Australian and I’d like to start by acknowledging the traditional custodians throughout Australia and recognise their continuing connection to land, waters and community. I pay my respects to them and their cultures; and to Elders past, present and emerging of the land I am standing on today. I extend my respect to the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people who listen to this.

    It’s been a while hey!

    Lots of changes. And since this is the psychology of entrepreneurship it is probably important that I address the break I took over the last few months. 

    At the end of May my grandma died in India after having covid19 for 3 days. For what may seem like obvious reasons now, I stopped everything. Both podcast stopped publishing. I wanted a break to process it all. What was the biggest impact was that I couldn’t go back to say bye maybe. 

    I’m in Australia and haven’t left these shores for what seems l...

    Volume: Erik Huberman: The Victim Complex

    Volume: Erik Huberman: The Victim Complex

    Focusing on the negative gets you nowhere, especially in business. If you don’t want to be a victim of yourself, it’s simple. Don’t be one.

    In this volume of The Psychology of Entrepreneurship…

    Erik Huberman doesn’t believe in the victim complex. And it shows.

    “Well, if you go in expecting it to be a shit show, it's a shit show.”

    As the founder and CEO of Hawke Media, the fastest-growing marketing consultancy in America, Erik Huberman knows a thing or two about business. And he didn’t get here by playing “Mr Nice Guy.” Well, ok, Erik is indeed a nice guy. But he doesn’t put up with crap, and he credits that attitude to getting him this far.

    In this volume, we’re presenting you with Erik’s entire uncut interview. Sure, we could have fancied it up a bit, but this guy has a lot to say, and we wanted you to hear all of it. In this conversation, Erik and I discuss why you have to hold your own as an entrepreneur. And he tells some pretty poignant and hilarious stories to hone in on this point. I can’t wait for you to hear.

    Other Topics Discussed in This Volume:



    The Victim Complex

    Knowing when to hold your own

    The never-ending nature of business

    When Covid hit

    Volume: Jane Vadiveloo Uncut

    Volume: Jane Vadiveloo Uncut

    When it comes to making any sort of lasting change in the world, you have to start with the children. After all, it’s the generations that come after us that are going to be cleaning up our messes.

    In this volume of The Psychology of Entrepreneurship…

    Jane Vadiveloo knows the future lies in the hands of today’s children.

    “If we really want to disrupt things, if we really want long-term sustainable change, that is honest and real, it is going to take time. It is going to take investment and it is going to take a change in a power structure.”

    As the CEO and co-founder of Children’s Ground, Jane Vadiveloo’s entire career is centred around helping Aboriginal youth. She has a Masters in Forensic Psychology and has been leading organisations for over 25 years. Children’s Ground serves as a unique approach to ensuring future generations of children enjoy education, health, social and economic opportunities.

    In this volume, we’re presenting you with my entire uncut interview with Jane. We thought this subject matter could be more effectively accentuated by the entire context of this conversation. You’ll hear Jane explain why her work with Aboriginal youth is so essential to their, and our country’s future. We discuss generational trauma and why that always plays a role when developing effective programs for Aboriginal peoples.

    We’ve done several volumes now on the history, strength, courage and tenacity of Aboriginal people and why we should all care. But this is the first time we’ve focused on the children. This was an eye-opening interview for me, and Jane gave me such hope for the future.

    Other Topics Discussed in This Volume:



    All about Children’s Ground

    Generational trauma and how that shapes Jane’s work

    Why today’s youth is misunderstood

    How history is repeating itself

    Volume: Negotiation

    Volume: Negotiation

    We’ve all negotiated at some point in our lives. Whether you’re the president of your country negotiating international trade or a high schooler negotiating curfew with your parents, it all counts. Negotiation is for everyone.

    In this volume of The Psychology of Entrepreneurship…

    Two brilliant negotiation experts widen the lens for sorting it out.

    While this episode features another fantastic Clubhouse session segment, we only hear two voices this time. Alexandra Carter is a Clinical Professor of Law and Director of the Mediation Clinic at the prestigious Columbia Law School. Dr Mark Goulston is a business psychiatrist, suicide prevention expert, TEDx speaker and consultant. Both are experts in mediation and negotiation. The pair explains why listening is SO important, and they provide tips for improving your negotiation skills.

    Entrepreneur or not, you can use these negotiation tools in virtually any scenario. You can even use them if you’re hashing out an internal problem with yourself! Don’t wait for things to go too far before salvaging a relationship or situation. If you want to feel seen and acknowledged, and make someone else feel the same way, you definitely want to give this volume a listen.

    Other Topics Discussed in This Volume:



    Solving disputes

    The power of open questions

    Listen to their eyes

    Amplifying other voices

    Listening to something versus listening for something

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.

Compulsory listening for solo entrepreneurs

What an amazing podcast. Compelling, insightful, entertaining and inspiring. As an entrepreneur Ronsley’s journey has helped me feel less lonely in my journey. You’ll learn so much about how your brain works and potentially is your best and worst friend.
