Expanding the Possibilities with a Growth Mindset

Sam Harris, host of ‘The Growth Mindset’ podcast and of the Reason FM (previously Syncify) podcast platform talks with Nick about all things mindset and how a growth mindset can change everything

Having the belief that you can change things and overcome the challenges along with curiosity and being open to the possibilities are what make the difference and in this episode, Nick and Sam share great content about the role growth mindset plays in achieving the outcomes you want. 


  • Acquisition entrepreneurship  is about buying a business that has good foundations then optimising and improving
  • If the outcome you are looking for is financial freedom, wealth and the ability to do what you want when you want you can achieve this much more quickly and precisely through acquisitions
  • It’s about a compelling opportunity versus starting something that hasn’t got a proven market or proven customers
  • The psychology for people retiring is that they don’t want the business anymore so you can get these businesses for very little money
  • With a leverage buy out you can leverage the assets in the business to pay for the business
  • I normally have 20-30 deals in process at any one time and expect to close 1-2 of those deals
  • Reason FM is a podcast community platform that enables you to engage with the podcasts you enjoy and discuss the content of podcasts
  • If you can help people to connect it’s a much more interesting media
  • The strategic side of growth is partnerships and acquisitions
  • There are many different ways of thinking about things  and listening to others can help you to see the possibilities
  • Most of what we achieve or don’t achieve is connected to our view of ourselves and our identity
  • A growth mindset is a much more empowering way to live
  • You need to step out from your own self-limiting beliefs

Having successfully built, bought and sold a number of companies, and removed myself from day-to-day operations, my focus now is on helping entrepreneurs get to where they want to be, in business and in life. As well as investing in growth businesses and backing turnarounds – with the ultimate aim of creating value from significant capital events.

I’m passionate about personal and professional development – showing up and being the best version of myself … every day.

My bigger vision is to help bring entrepreneurial skills, experience and mindset to people in developing nations – so they can follow their dreams, live life more on their terms – utilising entrepreneurship as a global force for good.
