Show Notes

Welcome to episode 18 of the Mindful & Driven podcast! It's all about how to not lose sight of what really matters whilst chasing your dreams.

Episode 18’s guest is Sinem Gunel. She’s a successful online content creator with millions of views and tens of thousands of followers. She has since founded and ran multiple successful businesses including the Medium Writing Academy, Personal Growth Base, and the Freedom Business Accelerator. The latter is an intensive coaching program over six months designed to help people go from beginner to running their own successful and thriving business too. 

Sinem is a long-time collaborator of mine and I’ve worked with her on a project called Write Your Future. She started her entrepreneurial career at just the age of 19 and has already helped so many people. I’m sure you’re going to find a lot of value from her words today.

Topics discussed in this episode:
Why you shouldn't trust advice you find online. Why you should question everything you hear online. How to find advice that works for you. What advice to follow and why. How to choose who to follow online. How to identify good advice for you. How to find what works for you as an online creator. How to approach online content. How to filter online advice. What business advice you should follow and why.
