30. Volume: Behind Closed Doors: The Different Sides of Self-Isolation

Covid19 has essentially shut the entire world down. Streets are empty. Restaurants, bars and pubs that are usually full of life and laughter are suddenly silent. Schools are closed indefinitely, and family and friends aren’t able to embrace and hug freely without the fear of spreading the virus.  And we’re all struggling with self-isolation, but in completely different ways.

This is The Psychology of Entrepreneurship,

a highly produced audio documentary style, revealing series that follows Ronsley Vaz and his guests, as they strive to go inside & unravel the inner workings of the mind of an entrepreneur, artist, athlete, academic; to decipher what is the psychology of our decisions.

If you are an entrepreneur and would like to understand why we do certain things in certain situations, and if small changes in thinking can deliver massive amounts of results in success and happiness, then this podcast is for you.

In this very special volume of The Psychology of Entrepreneurship, Ronsley explores the topic of self-isolation and how it can affect people in very different ways. Using recent news clips and articles related to the Coronavirus pandemic, he helps us sort through all the specific circumstances families and individuals are now faced with, that may differ from our own.

Ronsley focuses on those dealing with immune disorders that may leave them more vulnerable to the virus, those stuck in dangerous domestic violence situations, and other unique situations of isolation of those all over the world. 

We know COVID19 has saturated the news waves and, although it’s not always healthy to immerse ourselves in an overload of media, take a few minutes to look at things from a slightly different perspective. And take care of yourself and those around you.

Things touched on in this special volume:
  • Primary Immune (PI) disorders and how those with PI are affected by the pandemic
  • Severe Combined Immunodeficiency (SCID) and the John Travolta connection
  • Medical Doctors’ explanations of what makes someone vulnerable to the virus
  • Eye-opening current domestic violence statistics
  • How Chicago is helping those struggling in domestic violence situations during the pandemic
  • A former nuclear submarine captain’s advice for dealing with isolation
  • How to look out for those that may need it most
