EP 65 – Developing Your Mental Fortitude | Dr. Yasi Fit Founder Yasi Pujols

Yasi Pujols is a purple belt under Pablo Silva and has a Ph.D. in clinical psychology from the University of Texas in Austin. Yasi works with BJJ athletes to overcome anxiety and performance nerves.

This episode we talked a little bit more about Jiu-Jitsu then usual, she shared her competition experiences and dealing with performance anxiety. She also talked about the importance of aspiring or experienced entrepreneurs to understand WHY they do what they do.

My take away came right at the beginning of the interview when I asked: “How do you feel jiu-jitsu relates to life?” And her answer inspired me to title this episode Developing your mental fortitude.
