This is the Scale with Psychology podcast, where you’re going to optimize your psychology to exponentially scale your business and become the ultimate version of yourself, so you can effortlessly create extraordinary business success and personal wellbeing.

Entrepreneurship is a mental game, and the main constraint in any business is not the strategies and tactics but the psychology of the founder - because every next level of your business requires the next level of you, and stepping into the version of you that can build and run the next level of your business is one of the hardest things entrepreneurs have to do - because the psychology that got you this far, is now the very thing holding you back.

Not only do you need to up level your thinking, belief systems, character traits, leadership ability and skills at each stage of your business, but you have to let go of your current identity, patterns, habits that just aren’t compatible with the next level of your business.

I’m your host, Ani Manian, widely known as ‘The Mind Whisperer,’ and trusted advisor to the world's top entrepreneurs, and leaders and with each episode I’m going to help you take your life and business to levels you never thought possible.

If you’re ready to play the game of life and business on god mode, then this is the podcast for you.

Adrian Moreno :) ,

One of the best

Easily one of the best podcast I have ever listened to. Each episode truly does shift my perspective in a way that I didn’t even know I needed. This is a must listen for ANY entrepreneur who is truly in business to make a significant impact.

ToddPDorsey ,

Great Podcast!!

I like his insights.

Funinthesunindependentgal ,

Thought provoking and mind blowing!

Though I am not an entrepreneur, listening to Ani’s podcasts have continued to blow me away. Anyone from any walk of life has the ability to receive gold by listening to Ani.

The questions he asks and/or the wide variety of topics he discusses are put in the most simplest of terms that most of us have not ever given a second thought to until you hear Ani speak. His wonderfully calm tone is so magnetic for me, I could listen to him all day.

Ani has tapped into what this world desperately needs so much more of and expresses himself beautifully!
