About this Episode

New Year Greetings Glocal Citizens!
As we usher in 2022 aka double deuces, this week’s episode is all about mindset. We’re going back into the Global Citizens archive for a compilation of mindset hacks from early guests of the podcast. In case you’e new to the podcast and not unlike some of my guests you might be wondering what is a mindset hack? Well, a description that I quite like is that mindset hacking is exploring the limits of what is possible, seeking excellence, or even balance which entails doing something exciting and meaningful, deliberately finding opportunities to be clever, problem solve and enjoy what you are doing. So with that in mind, this week you’ll hear from:
Cordie Aziz-Nash, she is the CEO and founder of Environment360 and has roots in Sierra Leone, Ghana and the US;
Nigerian-American filmmaker and founder of Refined Creative based in Accra, Ghana, Emmanuel Etim;
Ghanaian, musician and social entrepreneur, Leslie Bentil, he’s the founder of Gutta Soles and the Gutta Soles Foundation;
Nigerian pianist, music director, composer, and leader of Afrobeat band Ayetoro, Funsho Ogundipe;
Ghanaian Amma Gyampo, Co-Founder of B2B Entrepreneurship Development firm, ScaleUp Africa;
Also from Ghana, serial techpreneur and creative, Kwame Acheampong;
Yogi and wellness-peneur, Nana Amoako-Anin, founder of Bliss Yoga Accra;
and Valerie Labi, a social innovator, business leader and mother who just last week welcomed her third bundle of joy. Congratulations to Val and her family!

So, as we ease our way out of holiday mode and into the flow of work I hope you enjoy these sound bites of inspiration to help nourish the start of your new year!
