Business & Economics Podcasts

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.

Transitions–The Eagle and The Mouse

10/8/2021
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....

Unfocus To Focus

9/24/2021
I can’t stop focusing on focus. First it was the interview with Omar Zenhom – episode 35 of this podcast titled “Focus To Succeed“ Then, it was last show – episode 36 – about “Focus Without Focus.” Today, I decided to speak about “Unfocus to Focus.” During my conversation with Omar, he spoke about an interesting phenomenon that happens when we are on vacation, and not thinking about our to-do lists. This situation creates space that allows us to see our priorities with more clarity. It...

Focus Without Focus

9/17/2021
Last episode I interviewed Omar Zenhom about how to “Focus To Succeed.” Afterwards, several ideas emerged for me that led to the topic “Focus Without Focus.” “Focus to Succeed” only works when we are focused on the essential projects that help us move forward. Our focus has to be on target. Moreover, if we take focus as the acronym F.O.C.U.S – Follow One Course Until Success – we should intentionally strategize about the “One Course” to be sure that it take us where we want to go. This...

Invisibilia – The Blind Can See

8/20/2021
Today's episode goal is to invite you to go and listen to a different podcast – really. This is one of the things I love about the podcasting world. Like authors and professionals speakers, we know that people who read a book, listen to a speaker, or a podcast, will enjoy reading others books, listening to other speakers, and subscribing to other podcasts. We don’t see each other as competition. Cavett Robert, the founder of the National Speaker Association, said it best: “As speakers,...

Misattributions – Good Or Bad?

8/6/2021
Today, I want to focus on misattributions, that is, situations where we attribute an idea to the wrong source. I was listening to news recently and they were speaking about the beautiful new US stamp, produced as an homage to the life and work of Maya Angelou. It's wonderful and meaningful to see a poet and thinker recognized this way, yet the quote that they chose to go along with the photo of Maya Angelou is not her own quote!!! They misattributed the quote. “A bird doesn't sing...

It is anger, jealousy, greed,...

Do You Have A Sandbox?

7/23/2021
For many of you, last week's episode was very conceptual with no practical application. I want to celebrate that . It’s essential to have activities that don't seem to have practical applications, or use business language, with no tangible Return Of Investment – ROI. We know that children need to play to learn new skills and develop as people. Yet, as adults we forget that we also need to keep playing in order to better ourselves. I have a six year-old daughter, and I totally understand...

Paradoxes – Give Your Mindsets a Workout

7/16/2021
To provide a mindset workout is my goal for every episode of my podcast. I want to create a space where you come to exercise your mind, such as when you go to the health club to keep yourself healthy and in shape. In the last episode – 26: Do People Really Change? – I went back in time 2,400 years, to Ancient Greece to illustrate the point that the question “Do People Really Change?” is not a new one. There I spoke about philosophers who argued that nothing really changes. They reasoned...

Life is two days, and the first we spend waking up

7/9/2021
Life is two days, and the first we spend waking up. This phrase from a Portuguese song I loved to listen to in the 90s sums up one of my favorite mantras, and like any good chorus, it's worth repeating: Life is two days, and the first we spend waking up. When we become aware of this, what do we do? Do we finally express what we believe and start writing our own scripts, or do we keep trying to meet other people's expectations? How can we live more fully and more positively in this...

Do People Really Change?

7/2/2021
I’m fascinated by change – if you listen regularly to this podcast you may have noticed that. Change has been the focus of my professional life. When I started as a psychotherapist, I helped people overcome problems in ways that changed how they lived their lives. Afterwards, as a life coach, I focused on supporting people to reach their goals and potential. This also implies change. Now, as a business coach, I assist service professionals to change their mindsets to become more...

Learning and Change

6/25/2021
The topic of this episode is Learning and Change – and how can we learn from our relapses, and missteps. First of all, I want to correct a mistake I did in Episode 23: Understanding Change – and Why Is So Difficult to Change, where I spoke about a specific model to explain change that was developed by a team of psychologists in the 1990s: Prochaska, Norcross, and Diclemente. I said that according to this model, if someone wants to change a habit or behavior, they will go through a 5-Stage...

During this interview, you'll shift your mindset about...

Understanding Change – and Why Is It So Difficult to Change

6/11/2021
A quarter of 2015 has already past. I’m wondering if this year you did any New Year's Resolutions that implied a big change in your life. The reality is that for most people, even if they honestly intended to change some important aspect of their lives – from exercising more, losing weight, and so forth – probably, by now, they have gone back to their old habits. If what you want to change is really important to you, please don’t give up or wait until next year to try again. Start to...

Getting a NO can be your best goal with Andrea Waltz

In this episode, I interviewed Andrea Waltz about the book she co-authored with Richard Fenton: Go for NO! YES is the destination NO is how you get there I spoke about this book in Episode 3 – Failure and The Way to Success. I was thrilled with this opportunity to speak with Andrea about some of the key concepts behind her book. We have a natural tendency to avoid NO, and that probably has to do with our fear of rejection. We are social animals, and this means that we seek social...
