    Volume 20: Rich Litvin: Not Lonely, Just Alone

    Volume 20: Rich Litvin: Not Lonely, Just Alone

    High-achievers, entrepreneurs and creatives are often driven by a sole purpose to make a difference. This path can put you in a difficult and lonely position; where your game can become so much bigger than that of anyone around you.

    Welcome to The Psychology of Entrepreneurship, a candid and revealing series that follows Ronsley Vaz and his guests, as they strive to unravel the inner workings of the entrepreneurial mind and explain why even the most successful among us experience Imposter Syndrome.

    If you are someone who is holding back, feeling unworthy of your success or questioning your competency as a professional, this podcast is for you. 

    Rich Litvin understands the nuances behind what makes high-achievers tick. This ex-teacher turned international business coach, is now the go-to expert in guiding ambitious frontrunners to even greater success. Rich has almost superhuman abilities when it comes to recognising where people are most powerful – even when they can't see it for themselves.  

    Born and raised in the UK, Rich now resides in LA. He coaches some of the world's top high-achievers, from Olympic athletes, Presidential candidates, Hollywood film directors, Special Forces operatives and serial entrepreneurs. Why do his clients love him so much? He's usually the only person in the world that isn't obliged to please them. No sugar-coating, no BS, just hard truths, authenticity and valuable guidance. 

    Besides helping the world's elite, he is also an author of the best-selling book ‘The Prosperous Coach' and runs a program for 40 of the world's most successful consultants and coaches. All the while, he strives to hit his ultimate goal to mobilise $100 million for charity through his connections. 

    In this volume of Psychology of Entrepreneurship, Ronsley and Rich discuss why we can feel so alone, even in the presence of others. They look at familiar entrepreneurial traps, and how even the most successful among us can experience their wrath. 

    Also within this volume:



    If it’s not a hell yes, you have to call it a hell no

    How do you want to see the world?

    Is your ladder to success on the wrong wall?

    Why your path to happiness can become tainted

    Are you in the wrong room?

    Why it’s so hard to own what you’re most proud of

    Who do you have in your life that can challenge you?

    The three entrepreneurial traps

    What is the fraudulent paradox?

    Why happiness shouldn’t be defined by gold

    Volume 19: Mark Fisher: The Power of Feedback

    Volume 19: Mark Fisher: The Power of Feedback

    Why do we put so much value on what other people say about us or our businesses? Does it deserve that much value? After all, feedback is just data. Or is it?

    Welcome to The Psychology of Entrepreneurship, a candid and revealing series that follows Ronsley Vaz and his guests, as they strive to unravel the inner workings of the entrepreneurial mind and explain why even the most successful among us experience Imposter Syndrome. 

    If you are someone who is holding back, feeling unworthy of your success or questioning your competency as a professional, this podcast is for you. 

    In this volume, Ronsley speaks with Mark Fisher, creator of Mark Fisher Fitness (MFF), two completely unique fitness studios in New York City built for people that don’t like gyms or working out in the traditional way. In an MFF studio, you’ll find bright coloured walls adorned with unicorns, and instead of members, you’ll find ninjas. In 2015, MFF was named one of Inc. Magazine’s 500 fastest growing companies in America.

    Besides creating ingenious fitness programs, Mark is a professional actor, performer and in-demand international speaker. Ronsley sat down with him, in his Manhattan apartment, to have a fascinating conversation about entrepreneurship and how the three basic human psychological needs – autonomy, competence and relatedness – factor into our journey to creating and running a business.

    Also within this episode:



    What Mark says he does when people ask

    The question that we’re not asking ourselves but should be

    Why loneliness is inevitable at some point in entrepreneurship

    The one book Mark feels everyone should read and why

    Why Mark’s business partner used to hide feedback from him

    Why you shouldn’t waste time solving problems you don’t have

    How to sort through feedback productively

    Volume 18: UJ Ramdas: Knowing What You Really, Really, Really Want

    Volume 18: UJ Ramdas: Knowing What You Really, Really, Really Want

    So many entrepreneurs measure success monetarily. But that isn’t the end result we should be striving for. Success is about reaching a goal, doing the work and making it to the finish line with your dreams and integrity intact.

    If success is about getting what you want, how do you know what you want? And how do you differentiate between what you want and what you really, really, really want?

    Welcome to The Psychology of Entrepreneurship, a candid and revealing series that follows Ronsley Vaz and his guests, as they strive to unravel the inner workings of the entrepreneurial mind and explain why even the most successful among us experience Imposter Syndrome. 

    If you are someone who is holding back, feeling unworthy of your success or questioning your competency as a professional, this podcast is for you. 

    UJ Ramdas isn’t shy about defining what he wants. In fact, he believes that making that clear definition is what saves you from living with regret, what he calls “the worst emotion in the world”. 

    UJ is the co-creator of The Five Minute Journal, a “gratitude journal on steroids”, which has sold 500,000 copies worldwide. I’ve been gifting this journal and using it myself since before I even knew who UJ was. He’s also the co-founder of Intelligent Change, a company that creates tools for people to help realize their ambitions and become wiser, more productive, happier versions of themselves.

    In this volume, UJ and I discuss how his profound sense of self and recognition of what he did and didn’t want for his life propelled his success. We also explore the concept of pain and why UJ views suffering as a choice. 

    Also featured in this volume:



    UJ’s history of conflict with authority

    How a cold shower can set up your whole day for success

    Why UJ changed his name

    Why you should ask yourself “What needs to happen for that to happen?”

    How UJ is a “sniper” in decision making

    How contrast brings perspective

    Why regret makes fear look like a joke

    What success is really about

    Volume 15: Mike Brown: Listen, Plan, Train

    Volume 15: Mike Brown: Listen, Plan, Train

    Not all entrepreneurs make it. Almost a quarter of new businesses fail within their first year, all because of poor planning and execution. Maybe an injection of military tactics and practices could change that.

    Welcome to The Psychology of Entrepreneurship, a candid and revealing series that follows Ronsley Vaz and his guests, as they strive to unravel the inner workings of the entrepreneurial mind and explain why even the most successful among us experience Imposter Syndrome.

    In this volume, Ronsley and Mike discuss the multiple military disciplines that can be effectively implemented into the business world. They explore how more money can lead to extreme procrastination and why sometimes you just have to ‘shut the f**k up,’ to get the bigger picture.

Smart Dialogue and High Production Value

I really enjoy this podcast because not only does Ronsley ask the questions I would ask if I were there but he actually highlights important parts of the conversation and then goes in depth in breakouts on those specific points. He is skilled at cutting to the meat of the conversation and serving it up in perfect, bite sized chunks. It is also obvious that a lot of time and energy go in to each episode. Well worth every minute of time invested in this podcast.

A place to reflect and grow...

Thank you a Ronsley and team for creating this podcast. I’ve heard it said that it’s not what you say that people remember, it’s how you make them feel. When I listen, it’s like every episode was recorded for me. It makes me feel like I’m not alone on this remarkable and treacherous journey.

There’s a difference between pontificating and reflecting. There’s a difference between interviewing and exploring. I find myself lost in thought during these shows and I’m given the space to think and feel within the context of the conversation being had.

Your message matters to me and I’m guessing it will matter to many more.
