A fantastic fireside chat with Sarah Furness. We learn key concepts about mastering mindsets, including…
- How we think and feel is a choice
- Sitting with difficulty is a skill
- We are born with only two fears (falling and loud noises). All others are learnt, so can be unlearnt!

WiserWednesday.com #S01.E07 - How Purpose Powers Your Startup
November 23, 2022 • 60 MIN
Key takeaways from this event:
- Purpose helps magnetise great people to want to join your cause
- Purpose does not hinder growth, it drives it
- Fear is the path of the dark side!
So, purpose Matters. It really matters. Unless you've worked in an organisation that has created a common purpose, you might question why it is so important. We explored the power of purpose to drive growth and magnetise great people to want to join your cause.
