Our mindsets determine the way we see the world, as well as, the way we behave and who we are as people.
It’s very easy and normal to stay stuck in fixed mindsets - limiting beliefs about our abilities and skills that prevents us to learn new things.
We can intentionally cultivate a growth mindset that allows to stretch our mind and amplify the realm of possibilities of what we do, and who we are.
Amplifying our mindsets is one of the secrets of success, from most entrepreneurs, freelancers and self-employed professionals and professionals out there.

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

    040:  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.) In our conversation we spoke about: What Is Productivity? Productivity Is More Than Getting Things Done New Definition of Balance Productivity Mindset Shifts in Entrepreneurship: From Start-Up to High 5 Figures […]

    039: Transitions–The Eagle and The Mouse

    In episode 26 of the MINDSET ZONE podcast where the topic was “Do People Really Change?”, I spoke about a Greek philosopher called Heraclitus who said: “No man ever steps in the same river twice, for it's not the same river and he's not the same man.” Heraclitus believed everything is in constant flow, everything always changes. I thought about this when I watched a short video from Martha Beck, a popular life coach and author. She shared her strategy to deal with major life transitions. Martha begins with […]

    038: Essentialism by Greg McKeown

    To conclude my series of podcast episodes about the importance of “Focusing”, I was honored to interview Greg McKeown, author of the New York Times Best Seller Book – Essentialism: the Disciplined Pursuit of Less. Greg has taught at companies that include Apple, Google, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Salesforce, and Pixar. He is also an amazing keynote speaker that I had the opportunity to meet at the ICON15– The InfusionSoft Annual Conference held in Phoenix, Arizona. Here are some of the topics we spoke about: What is “Essentialism”? Information and opinion overload Emails in mobile devices as a distraction Discern between the vital few and the trivial many Becoming an essentialist is not an event, it’s a process […]

Particularly enjoyed the episode on mindset shifts in productivity!

Episode 40 had so many important take-aways. If you’re an overworked business owner - this episode is a must.

I found this podcast during a painful time...

Ana,

Thank you for creating this podcast! I have been struggling with so many areas of my mindset lately it has been hard to feel that I’m worthy of the blessings in my life. Professionally, I have never had a more difficult experience than I have lately. As I listen to each episode I feel equipped with new tools to combat the dark, desperate, lonely feelings of failure and defeat and the “now.” And start embracing the power of “yet.” Your words and lessons from episodes 2 onward have been a reminder that the hopes and dreams I hold dear really can become reality. My best possible self does not have to be a dream of some distant time. I have the ability to overcome the challenges and failures I’ve experienced and learn how to be bigger, stronger, and faster than all of them!

If someone reading this is debating whether or not to dive into this podcast, my advice is to do it and listen carefully for the moments of wisdom. When you find them, do not fear applying them to your life! When you apply the principles of a growth mindset it’s like being reborn. Healing is what it has been for me so far, healing for wounds that I caused myself like self-doubt, self-deprecation, very low self-worth and depression. For those of you who have dealt with those kinds of troubles in your lives, LISTEN TO THIS PODCAST. I also recommend the uplifter ap, which has been life-changing for me.

Ana- thank you again for doing this. Please continue!!
