Cliff Ravenscraft is The Mindset Answerman
What would you do if you could 100% pursue what you are most passionate about doing in the world?
In 2008, Cliff Ravenscraft left a lucrative career as an insurance agent in his grandfather’s business to make a living from his passion for podcasting. He was known as The Podcast Answerman, and a lot of what he shared over the years influenced Beyond the Rut’s start-up. That has not changed.
Cliff transitioned his platform to talk more about transformation in our own lives as he shared his own weight loss journey in 2014. After losing 100 pounds, and keeping it off with a commitment to no longer consume refined sugar, Cliff Ravenscraft leads mastermind groups that help small business owners, creatives, and professionals break out of their limiting mindsets and achieve their next levels.
It’s All About Mindset
Working with Cliff Ravenscraft means taking a hard look at your own beliefs that are holding you back, and committing to a timeline and action to transform your life. While Forbes magazine may talk about the mindset of money, Cliff has you looking into yourself.
What is your belief in yourself? What do you feel you deserve for your work or product?
Upgrade your peer group to expand your perspective on what is possible. With more perspective, you have more options among which to choose. With more options, your likelihood of success also grows.
We’re talking about belief in yourself, and you get to hear Cliff call me out on some of my own limiting beliefs. This was one of those episodes that had me contemplating my own strategy for Beyond the Rut while editing it for you.
