By Steve Fredlund
February 18, 2022

This week Jim Reid and the panel interview Karina Karagaeva, the CEO of Mindset Design, about how plugging leaks in your mental game can be profitable in all areas of your life – on and off the felt! Whether it’s issues you know about – tilt, losing focus, apathy – or leaks you might not even know you have, like poor goal setting or session prep, the solutions might be closer than you think! Karina talks about her professional path to mindset coaching, the tools and systems that she uses to set people up for success, and other fascinating aspects of how people can motivate themselves to learn.
