Why should you invest in a 
type two fun mindset?

We believe that the journey to success should be both challenging and enjoyable. We embrace the concept of type two fun  experiences that put us in touch with our growth zone, that optimal place between comfort and discomfort where you expand your opportunity for learning and personal growth. We engage in these experiences  intentionally knowing there will be discomfort involved, but afterwards, the result is immense satisfaction and a sense of accomplishment. We set goals along the way, celebrate effort, and find fulfillment and gratitude in the journey itself, not just the destination.

Today’s guest, Michael Futterman – the brains behind leadership development for mammoth asset managers (think $600B+ industry giants) and coach for emerging fund managers is just the guy to help you get into a headspace that’ll allow you to edge ahead in this tough race. 

Some advisors become too comfortable with their current situation and stop striving for more, usually due to a fear of disrupting what’s already working. Others are always in the “go, go, go” mindset, ultimately burning themselves out!


In this episode, Shannon Spotswood speaks with Michael Futterman, executive coach, motivational speaker, and EQ enthusiast. Together, they explore the path to “endurance entrepreneurship” where advisors can maintain a healthy and sustainable level of motivation, engagement, and productivity in their lives, personally and professionally.

Type Two Fun

Your cognitive tendency to resist change is known as

 Status Quo Bias

and involves people preferring things to stay the way they are. This could negatively impact one's ability to make the best decisions for their organization.

dynamic of an effective team is  psychological safet 

Psychological safety is

"the belief that one will not be punished or humiliated for speaking up with ideas, questions, concerns, or mistakes, and that the team is safe for interpersonal risk-taking"
