# 81 - You Need a Mindset Shift! - Let’s Talk Change, Comfort Zones and Taking Action


I have been running the Business Circle for a few years now and one topic stood out in the most recent Wins + Woes meeting. From this I feel the need to emphasize the importance of a mindset shift. So we talk about why a mindset shift is necessary to encourage you to get out of your comfort zone while still taking care of yourself. Because… if you don’t change anything, nothing will change. So unless you are happy and content where you are as a person and a business owner, this episode is for you!


  1. Mindset Matters: The mindset of a business owner can significantly impact the success of a small business, often being the make or break factor.
  2. Overcoming Resistance: Addressing resistance, tackling perfectionism, and embracing change are crucial for personal and professional growth.
  3. Community Support: Working with others in a supportive environment, such as small groups, can facilitate mindset shifts and help navigate challenges.
  4. Productivity Mindset: Shifting focus from hustling to working smarter, recognizing personal boundaries, and finding efficient yet sustainable ways of working.
  5. Action and Change: Taking imperfect action is better than waiting for perfection. Embrace change, take calculated risks, and be kind to yourself throughout the process.
