"Mindset impacts everything. Regardless of if it's a career or a job, personal fitness, wellness, whatever. My mindset impacts how I approach it and my perspective, and really impacts what's possible for me with everything. So, for example, oh, my gosh, I have so much to do, there's all these tasks to do that work. Instead of making that a negative, what's my mindset around that? What am I impacting by doing these different things, and that in and of itself kind of opens up me and myself to what's possible!"
"I am so excited to be talking about this because it truly is just a few of my favorite themes and topics from our books. So this is a book that we've authored, and it's What Got You Here Won't Get You There, your career 2.0 A Survival Guide for the better career and investor syndrome and it's so great that we're kicking off with chapter one because those are two themes that we're going to be talking about. One of the first things we talk about in chapter one is the career revolution. And what is the current revolution ?"
"Every time there's a shift in the economy, so many employees experience either layoffs or furloughs, look at what happened again, just here in the last 12 months, companies needed to downsize, they needed to temporarily shut down, they weren't sure whether they're going to open up their doors again. So you know, if you think about just the things that we've witnessed here over the last 24 months, maybe 12 months, I mean, you tell me does it feel like there's job security out there?"

About Mary Pang
At The Entrepreneur’s Source, I gained a deep understanding of the entire franchise candidate’s journey from initial exploration all the way through to investing in a franchise. I witnessed the importance of each of the roles played by the franchise coach/consultant, franchise developer, and funding partner, and what a powerful impact collaboration has on achieving common goals. I worked with hundreds of franchise brands to understand their business model and educate them on the importance of creating a strong discovery experience for each candidate. I fell in love with the franchising industry at large, and the impact we collectively make in helping people realize their dreams of business ownership and self-sufficiency. Mary has now moved on to FranFund as a Funding Consultant at FranFund, she helps people get the funding they need to start or grow their business. We understand the uncertainty that can come with a new venture, so we make it a priority to educate and communicate during every step of the process so clients can move forward with confidence.
