When you feel stuck in a career that isn’t serving you, you need to have the courage to think about what you REALLY want to do – even when no one else around you is taking that step.
In this inspirational episode of The Business of Thinking Big, I sit down with Stiva Sinanan, a fitness trainer and coach whom you may recognize as a member of the Team Teal on CBC’s reality competition Canada's Ultimate Challenge (and a repeat MamaCon speaker!). While his team may have lost the big prize to Team Black, Stiva is no stranger to determination. He once cycled from Toronto to Montreal to raise money for charity – a ride that took over six days to complete!
Stiva has been just as determined when it comes to his business. When he decided to leave his six-figure career to follow his passion, his colleagues thought he was crazy, but he wasn’t deterred and took the plunge! Now, he’s doing the work that lights him up — and helping others live better, healthier lives!
During our conversation, we dig into the links between body confidence and business confidence, and explore the importance of seeking joy in all areas of your life. Get ready to learn the simple exercises that will help you to increase your body confidence, the mindset trick that will lead you to be more courageous in your decision-making, and why the doubts of those around us may reflect their own fears, rather than their belief in our capabilities.
