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.

Danny Iny (@DannyIny) is the founder and CEO of Mirasee and best-selling author of nine published books, including Teach Your Gift Leveraged Learning, Teach and Grow Rich, The Audience Revolution, and Engagement from Scratch!. He is the host of the Business Reimagined Podcast and the creator of the acclaimed Course Builder’s Laboratory training program, which provides all the instruction, coaching, and support that entrepreneurs need to build and launch a profitable online course. He is an advocate for the positive power of failures. Back in 2011, he started Firepole Marketing with less than nothing. In just a few short years, he transformed Firepole Marketing into Mirasee and grew the business to multiple-seven figures in revenue. Together with his talented wife and business partner, he now leads a team of 30+ people around the world who are on a mission to support a very special global community of 100,000+ loyal and inspired entrepreneurs. Danny has maintained a passionate commitment to learning and transparency, freely sharing lessons learned from great successes, major challenges, and even his personal life to support the online entrepreneurial community as a teacher, speaker, trainer, and advisor to many of the top leaders in our industry. His study, research, and unflagging drive over the years have culminated in his latest work, Leveraged Learning, which aims to sow the seed of education’s transformation in the coming years. Leveraged Learning shares the opportunity and transmits the vision to those who will boldly rise up and claim it.

Today, Danny joins me to talk about the different ways to learn. He discusses his love-hate relationship with formal education and talks about the different powers and limitations of information. He notes that formal education is a misfit for more people than we generally suppose, and he shares his definition of learning. He lists the three steps of a learning journey and talks about the pros and cons of online learning. He explains why not to disregard online learning as ineffective right away, he talks about the potential of recorded lectures, and he offers his insight on succeeding (and not just trying) outside of your comfort zone.

“[Information] is a great way of expanding your horizons of what’s possible…but it’s not very good for developing competence.”
