Episode #55: Is Your Head Trash In Charge of Growing Your Business?

by | Aug 31, 2021

Listen to the episode:


Is your negative and worrying mindset in charge of growing your business? As service owners, our job is to anticipate the needs of others and even help people find their own path to grow their business. But that doesn’t mean we’re always consciously in charge of the growth of our own business in a way that makes sense.

This week on the Mindset First Podcast, I explore the sneaky ways that your mindset keeps taking you back to these situations where you’re stuck. Where you take clients that don’t align with your business vision, that keeps you from investing in ways that you need to grow, and that just leaves you feeling so frustrated.

This episode is really for anyone who knows they have mindset traps that are holding them back, but aren’t really sure of all the ways their mindset keeps leading them back to self-sabotage and unhealthy patterns when it comes to growing a business. This is for anyone who is ready to come to terms with the fact that it’s mindset that is keeping you from getting to where you want. It’s what’s holding you down and you’re ready to start digging out. So let’s kick back, talk a little bit about this, and I hope you enjoy this episode.

  1. What mindset got me to this point? How are they serving me now? How are they not serving me?
