Why do we put so much value on what other people say about us or our businesses? Does it deserve that much value? After all, feedback is just data. Or is it?
Welcome to The Psychology of Entrepreneurship, a candid and revealing series that follows Ronsley Vaz and his guests, as they strive to unravel the inner workings of the entrepreneurial mind and explain why even the most successful among us experience Imposter Syndrome.
If you are someone who is holding back, feeling unworthy of your success or questioning your competency as a professional, this podcast is for you.
In this volume, Ronsley speaks with Mark Fisher, creator of Mark Fisher Fitness (MFF), two completely unique fitness studios in New York City built for people that don’t like gyms or working out in the traditional way. In an MFF studio, you’ll find bright coloured walls adorned with unicorns, and instead of members, you’ll find ninjas. In 2015, MFF was named one of Inc. Magazine’s 500 fastest growing companies in America.
Besides creating ingenious fitness programs, Mark is a professional actor, performer and in-demand international speaker. Ronsley sat down with him, in his Manhattan apartment, to have a fascinating conversation about entrepreneurship and how the three basic human psychological needs – autonomy, competence and relatedness – factor into our journey to creating and running a business.
