Another international conversation today! I am excited to welcome Ken Attard to the T&T Mic, joining us from the Republic of Malta in the Mediterranean Sea! We discuss all things mindset today and taking the inside lane to figure the outside… out. In other words, we are talking about the internal dialogue, beliefs, ideas, and the experiences that we have that have shaped our mindset. This includes limiting beliefs and disrupting our own thought patterns. Everything is energy and getting your mind clear on what you want, actually believe, and what you can actually achieve. It’s not just about profitability- it’s about enjoying the WHOLE journey. Ken is a coach, speaker, entrepreneur, consultant, and Founder of Mindset Malta. Ken is mission driven to help entrepreneurs (or anyone really) feeling frustrated, stagnant, or questioning what’s next? Ken can teach you how to breakthrough to yourself by shifting your mindset to grow your business, whatever may be needed, regardless of the circumstances and uncertainty surrounding you. He has developed the unique Arc Method, a proprietary proven simple process, helping you to shift your thinking, so that you too can adapt and pivot your business, enabling you to have more time and energy and ultimately increasing your profitability…. guaranteed. This is an awesome conversation for anyone questioning a better way, that has tried it all, and can’t figure out why it’s not working… the answer is likely in the inside lane (within:).
Questioning a better way. Mindset. International conversation connected by core values. Mission driven, high achieving humans. Belief systems, family, environment, growth. Nurture and nature. Energy and perspective. Enjoying the journey. Personal and professional evolution. Living in alignment. Coaching and leveling up, a continuous process.
Ken Attard is the founder of Mindset Malta and The Inside Lane™.
After successfully working with various clients over the span of 15 years, Ken now specializes as a Mindset Consultant specifically helping Frustrated Entrepreneurs to Adapt and Pivot using his proprietary Arc Method allowing them to have more time freedom, guaranteed.
Helping you shift your Mindset to create the results that you desire is without a doubt one of his biggest passions in life.
Ken brings to the stage his personal experiences not only as a Mindset Consultant, but also as an Entrepreneur, Father and human being like the rest of this planet. He has a firm belief that life is not meant to be difficult or a continuous struggle, but is meant to be fun and flowing, full of new experiences that are fruitful, abundant and inspiring. His fun and easy-going manner comes through in the way he conveys his message which allows you to feel at ease, be empowered and ultimately get the results you want.
I am so excited for this conversation today – it’s a T&T Open Mic AND a connect of connect, my favorites! I am welcoming all around bad ass, Brooke Goudy, to the T&T mic! Brooke is an avid outdoorswoman, mountain biker, Co-leader of Black Girls Do Bike Denver and a mountain bike coach at Boulder High School. Brooke is deeply passionate about diversifying outdoor sports and intentional about making her seat at the table- alongside creating space for others! Brooke shares her journey and how she fell in love with biking, coaching a mostly white high school team, and the power of conversation and call outs. You know I am passionate about life skills through sports, so I was excited to learn more about her experience of brining life lessons through biking. We know representation matters and Brooke is on the forefront of great change in outdoors sports AND the world. We discuss a range of topics from micro aggressions, tough convos and consultations, and building a brand with a mission, team, and microbrews. Thank you for the time and energy Brooke- your passion is contagious and I can’t wait to see where it continues to take you! And special thanks to Alyson and Becca for the gracious intro:)
Diversity. Inclusion. Seat at the table and not at the table. Representation. Mountain biking, bike packing, and other things I should know a Colorado native. Business, contracts, consultations, and closing deals. Building a better world for our kids and seeing the new world through their eyes. Wonder and energy, balancing it all out.
I am so excited to welcome Lindsay Simonds to the T&T mic! Lindsay is a fellow Colorado native and all things non-profit pro! Lindsay founded LSC (Lindsay Simonds Consulting) in 2017 and is a senior, nonproﬁt, fundraising and management professional with a decade of experience partnering with organizations for transformational change. Having raised over $1 billion philanthropic dollars Lindsay’s mission and the message are just beginning. Today we discuss Lindsay’s journey navigating the nonprofit world where investing and spending are often misunderstood. Shouldn’t we do it all for free if for charity? No. We explain why AND how this awareness of self-worth translates into all you do, in every arena (personally and professionally). Dialing into your self-worth, measured by money or time, can be a tricky process. It’s takes time, awareness, trail, and error to really dial into your own valuation point. Then there are the conversations around price point phycology and your own narrative around money. We are here to unpack it all with you! If you are an emerging or experienced entrepreneur (or thinking about taking the leap), this conversation is for you! Developing self-worth and putting a price on it is not easy, but very necessary. Enjoy this convo and put some respect on the checks you will continue to write to yourself… #youreworthit 🙂
Giving and making money in the nonprofit space. Self-awareness, self-worth, growth. Money management and identifying our own narrative around money. How to ask for money and how to know what you deserve. Comparing the non-profit and for-profit work spaces. Monetizing the scares, battles, time, and energy. Taking the leap from the corporate world to the entrepreneurial one. Priorities and priority shifts. Maturity, security, and taking risks.

I am so excited for this one! We are fresh off Podfest Origins, a podcast-based multimedia expo in Florida, and I have my first pod-connect, Peter Ong. Peter is coming to us live from Kuala Lumpur, a Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. That is right, we are worlds apart and yet share the love of podcasting! In a divide world, now more than ever we need unity. What better way to unite than for our love of podcasting and the podcasting community? Peter is a podcaster (obviously), Japanese speaking online marketer, coach, and animation video creator. We talk about Peter’s journey into business and podcasting and how we both embraced the Chris Krimitsos, Founder and Creator of Podfest, motto, Start Ugly! It’s not easy to get on the mic and share your voice, but it is necessary. You can learn from our journeys that it can be a work in progress (podcasting or any new challenge/ adventure) just begin and be open to evolution as you go. Who knows, you might end up with friends around the world at the very least! Community is everything and finding yours is easier than ever- use your voice, share your words, and make friends… the world needs your individuality to unite accordingly (aka niche communities = family:). Everything is easier when you have the supportive efforts of the fam!
Entrepreneurship. Podcasting and the podcasting community. Crossing paths because of common ground. The power of community, support, and chasing the dream. Questioning a better way and using your voice. Starting ugly and imposter syndrome. Branding and marketing. Connection.
