Getting off the Entrepreneurial Hamster Wheel and Embracing New Mindset Changes with Andrea Freeman

Welcome to a new and exciting episode of the Business Growth Hacks podcast! Today, we are joined by entrepreneur, podcast host, event planner, reinvention ninja, and mindset-guru Andrea Freeman.

Andrea takes us on a tour of her past, telling us stories of her first business at 12 years old as a way to focus on her entrepreneurial background. We listen as she explains how she has been in many fields of work, yet she always found her way back to being a business owner. 

Later on, Andrea discusses all things mindset, emphasizing the limits we may put on its potential due to a simple bias of the word. She gives us techniques and methods that empower us to climb off the high-speed business hamster wheel and reset, recenter, and re-calibrate our mindsets. From meditation to just being present in nature, we are given tips and tricks on how to expand the awareness of our mind and create a mindful practice that helps us inspire action to claim our business power back.

Plus, we are lucky enough to understand how to acknowledge our authentic, true selves and create alignment within our business. If the words restore, rejuvenate, and restart appeal to you, tune in and listen to how to leverage your mindset to create a more joyous, calm, and present entrepreneurial life!
