Ordinary Astronauts

Dr. Emily Anhalt joins the show to discuss how bringing more awareness to your own psychology can make a huge difference in the company you build—and to your life.

Show Notes

This week we've got a mind-expanding conversation with Dr. Emily Anhalt. Emily is a psychologist and co-founder of Coa, a gym for your mental health.

She's spent years studying the psychology of entrepreneurs (and is a founder herself) so we spent the episode diving deep into:

- The pros and pitfalls of the entrepreneurial psychology
- What defense mechanisms are and how analysis can help you identify and deal with them
- How bringing more awareness to your own psychology can help you achieve better outcomes in your company and in your life
