Episode 12: Do You Have a Growth Mindset or a Fixed Mindset?

Joe and I sit down to discuss the differences between a fixed mindset and a growth mindset. I am currently listening to an audiobook titled Mindset by Carol Dweck and discuss some of the points the author makes in the book. Both Joe and I agree that working with someone with a fixed mindset is not only annoying but frustrating as well, because you know they have the ability to do it.  

On this podcast for small business owners and other creative professionals, I share valuable insights on becoming a successful copywriter and business owner.
