Hi, I’m Stephanie Mckinney. In this episode, we continue to demystify the jargon of investors by talking about the main questions investors will ask during a pitch.

  • Understanding what questions to prepare for in a pitch

  • How to retain control initially whilst still fundraising

Through this series, I will have aspiring guests and answer their questions so we learn together using real-life examples.

How to Change Mindset when you are stuck?

One of the most challenging times to change your mindset is when you are feeling stuck. One technique that has helped many people reach their goals and find success is goal setting, and having a change mindset is key to learning new skills and keeping up in today’s world.

There is a phrase “change your mindset change your life.” and in my experience, it is totally possible! This is one of the most important conversations Kim-Adele and Nathaniel Schooler have had.
