Podcast: Janey Martino – The Founder Of Smiling Mind Talks Meditation, Startups and Her Secrets To Success

Janey Martino

To call Janey Martino an overachiever is an understatement. After starting a successful PR company at age 25, the serial entrepreneur was involved with a number of startups as an early investor, advisor, and CEO. She developed a digital platform named Shout for Good, which pairs communities and causes together, which sold to ANZ in 2015. She’s authored a number of books, including the successful Thank You series and, most recently, a series of children’s books for Penguin.

Janey was a finalist in the Telstra Young Business Women’s Awards and a former board member of the Melbourne Football Club. Most recently, however, Janey is Chair and Co-Founder of the acclaimed Smiling Mind, a free meditation app for young people. Smiling Mind has millions of downloads and is used by a third of Australian educators.
In this episode, Janey and I discuss:

  • How only five people believed in Smiling Mind, which has now been downloaded over 6 millions times
  • How Smiling Mind increased their downloads over 500% in one year
  • Janey’s perspective and strategies for dealing with failure and rejection.
  • Mindset, habits and rituals Janey has deployed to support her success.
  • Strategies for balancing motherhood with the demands of career and entrepreneurship.
