This podcast came about after I was listening to Richard MacKinnon’s podcast ‘My Pocket Psych‘ which resonates 100% with me. We met and discussed coaching and how one wants to live one’s life passion. He set up his own company 5 years ago, Worklifepsych and hasn’t looked back.
I am setting up my own coaching and consulting business, Ballueder Partners, as my main occupation. Being a coach based on 15+ years experience gives you credibility in terms of what you do, and we further discuss, how this helps others to become successful and achieve their dreams. That’s what life is all about.
I was particularly impressed when we discussed what it means to be successful for Richard. We went deep into psychology and motivational theories around values, avoiding discomfort and how to live in the here and now, rather than being too future focused.
We even get some time at the end discussing productivity tools, and below is a link to a blogpost he wrote on how to choose a task management app.
For me this was a great discussion, just at the right time as I start formalising my coaching business and taking on first clients to be coached. Thank you Richard for being my guest, and if you want to find out more about him, please follow any of the links below.
