Why should you care about mastermind groups? That’s what Elisabeth Embry wants to get to the bottom of in today’s episode of Women Investing Network. Elisabeth is a member of Jason Hartman’s Venture Alliance Mastermind, and it’s been incredibly helpful to her as she’s figured out her path. Elisabeth fills you in on what sorts of things you should be looking for in a mastermind group, what environment the group should nurture, and what you can expect to get out of them.
Then, Jason Hartman talks with health psychologist Dr Kelly McGonigal about her book The Willpower Instinct: How Self-Control Works, Why It Matters, and What You Can Do to Get More of It. Kelly has helped hundreds of students at Stanford University reach their goals by helping them strengthen their willpower. She goes into the science behind it and how we can find the inner strength to resist.
Dr McGonigal’s research has been published in The Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, Motivation and Emotion, The International Journal of Psychiatry in Medicine, and The Journal of Happiness Studies. She’s also a long-time student of yoga and meditation and a founding member of the Yoga Service Council. Kelly is a part of several non-profits attempting to bring yoga and meditation to underserved populations.
