You’ll have more energy to sustain you and your goals over years and decades when you cultivate your grit. Success is about sustained performance over time, and cultivating your grit each day is necessary to do so.

531: Choose a Growth Mindset
This week on the podcast, we talk about various ways to adopt a growth mindset vs. a fixed mindset. When we adopt a growth mindset, we see challenges as exciting and find optimistic ways of explaining adversity. A growth mindset has been linked to achievement, more happiness, healthier relationships, and a higher motivation.
“Quote of the Week: "I’ve missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times I’ve been trusted to take the game-winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.” Michael Jordan
Power Phrase of the Week: "When I get frustrated with my progress, I will remind myself I just haven’t done it yet.”
530: What Do You Want in 2023?
In this episode, we encourage you to think about what you really want in 2023. High performers set goals because it gives them direction and focus. They write their goals down. They follow through with their goals and keep them in mind during the year. They write down the steps to reach their goals, and then are flexible along the way.
Power Phrase of the Week: “I am focused on my goals in 2023.”
Quote of the Week: “Your goals are the road maps that guide you and show you what is possible for your life.” Les Brown
529: Lessons for an Entrepreneur on the Way to $250 Million with Angie Bastian, Founder of BOOMCHICKAPOP
Angie Bastian, along with her husband, Dan, are the founders of Angie’s BOOMCHICKAPOP, one of the most successful homegrown snack food stories in the 21st century.
Angie and Dan Bastian were looking to put aside some money for their kids’ college fund when they started a small kettle corn business out of the family’s garage. They sold the popcorn at festivals and sporting events, eventually becoming the official popcorn of the Minnesota Vikings after delivering several free bags of popcorn to the players to eat while they watched film during training camp. Eventually, Angie retired from her work as a nurse practitioner and Dan from teaching history to run their company full-time.
The ultimate game changer took place when Angie’s Kettle Corn became BOOMCHICKAPOP, and the rebranding took place. Several years later, Dan and Angie, sold the business in the fall of 2017 as a part of a $250 million dollar buyout by Conagra Brands.
In this episode, Angie shares with us:
How the popcorn company started, The behind-the-scenes story of the naming of BOOMCHICKAPOP, The strategies they used to overcame setbacks to build the company, Why we should not discount our own unique perspectives, and Her personal passions driving her today.
“Don’t discount your own unique perspective.” Angie Bastian

Audio Poor Balance
Decent content but had to stop listening due to just low audio quality and variation in volume. Frustrating and surprising that this hasn’t been fixed for a podcast that’s been on for so long. Unsubscribed
