The trials of starting a business—even if you forget, for a moment, the typical travails of day-to-day living—often overwhelm entrepreneurs. Late nights, endless work, big choices, and extreme uncertainty can swirl together to form a raging twister that ravages the landscape of life, shredding business hopes and ideas along the way. But the forecast is much better for some, including Andy Puddicombe.

Puddicombe is one of the minds behind Headspace, a guided meditation app that’s reaching new users every day. He can also say something that few entrepreneurs can: he’s rarely overwhelmed.

In this episode you will learn:

What is Mindful Meditation and how to use it effectively

The importance of when, and when not, to listen to customer feedback

How to improve your product by living in the present

How Andy inspires and leads a worldwide movement for meditation and peace

Key tips on how to avoid burnout

& much more!

    Thanks for sharing your joureny. As a meditator and entrepreneur, it is very encouraging to see how you craft and grow your business, esp hearing your early days of writing content in the wee early morning hours. Stay well and thank you both.
