Ep. 44 Talk About 2020 & Mindset with Jason Mitchell Kahn

Episode 44: Talk About 2020 & Mindset with Jason Mitchell Kahn

Jason Mitchell Kahn joins me to talk all about 2020 and mindset. This year has handed us a lot, so we’re digging into strategies for navigating this season of seemingly endless change for both you and your clients. We discuss everything that has affected our lives and the lives of others these last six months, and how it could and should change us in a positive way.

So listen up, because mindset is the most important tool in your entrepreneurial toolbox. No matter what this season of business has brought your way, your mindset will get you through. 

Grab a glass of bubbly (you deserve it!) and listen in.

This Week’s Sponsor: Better Help

If you’re reading this in real-time, we are in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. I’ll be real honest here. Somedays I’m dealing with the isolation and this strange new normal pretty well. Other days? I’m very anxious and panicked about when this will all be over. If you’re familiar with me, you know I’ve never hidden the fact that I see a therapist. I believe taking care of our mental health should be as normalized as taking care of our physical health. 

Because I travel so much I see an online therapist at Better Help. Better Help is the world’s largest e-counseling platform. They make professional counseling accessible, affordable, and convenient so you can get help anytime anywhere. You can video chat with your therapist or do your session by phone. You can even text them through the Better Help portal (I’ve done that a lot). 

Listen. If you’re struggling, you aren’t alone, even if right now you’re physically alone. Get a free week of counseling if you go to You deserve to be happy. Now more than ever.

Thanks for Listening
