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.

In this episode, you will listen to an interview with Pamela Slim, author of Escape from Cubicle Nation and the Body of Work.

Pamela Slim is an award-winning author, speaker and business consultant who has been an entrepreneur for eighteen years. Pam is a passionate, engaging speaker with proven advice for building careers in the “New World of Work” – a world filled with economic instability, rapid change, increased demands on leadership, work-life balance pressures and 24-hour a day social media sharing.

Our conversation focused on her last book:

Body of Work: Finding the Thread That Ties Your Story Together.

We discussed:

– Body of Work – definition

– Need for a new type of career advice

– Finding the thread that ties your story together

“You need to tell a story about your own body of work, in a context that will make sense for the work you want to get.” – Pam Slim

– Ethical and effective story telling

“More and more people, by choice or by force, don’t have a straight-line story for their work experience.” – Pam Slim

– Mindset shift needed to succeed in our rapid changing world

“Craft a story that explains your highest values, your strengths, and the value you can provide to the audience you care about influencing.” – Pam Slim

– Importance of defining our roots

– We can have more than one singular life purpose

– Our work recipes and ingredients

– A definition of success

“Don't aim at success–the more you aim at it and make it a target, the more you are going to miss it. For success, like happiness, cannot be pursued; it must ensue, and it only does so as the unintended side effect of one's personal dedication to a cause greater than oneself or as the by-product of one's surrender to a person other than oneself.”
― Viktor E. Frankl, Man's Search for Meaning
