Use a Growth Mindset to Learn Anything ep. 7

This week’s guest on Changes BIG and small is Praveen Selvasekaran. Praveen and I have a meandering chat, discussing some of the changes he’s made in his life, from moving away from home, to moving to Canada with his wife, where they are building their family.
