Happiness is 50-50

mindset podcast Dec 08, 2020
 

When was the last time you remember being sincerely happy with what’s going on in your life? Most people have something they wanted to have or to be in their life, and also take what they do have for granted. Most of us are more focused on what we think of as unhappiness or misfortune than we are on luck and joy. 

Happiness may be vague and considered immeasurable by scientists, but what if I told you that there’s a way how you can live a peaceful and happy life...

More Than One Way to Be Queen

the driven woman Dec 02, 2020

Season 8 of the hit show Game of Thrones has come and gone and my Sunday nights will never be the same. No longer will I be keeping company with dwarves and dragons, incest and beheadings. I must admit I went through the five stages of grief and loss, even though no one has died. Well, actually lots of people have died on this show, including the deaths of some of my favorite characters. The end of the series was also the end of the lives of some of the most vivid characters. These deaths and...

Client Success Story: Meet Jen

podcast Dec 01, 2020
 

This episode is our first Client Success Story, featuring my client Jen DiNardi, OTD who has a doctorate in Occupational Therapy, and specializes in pediatrics. 

In this episode, we talk about:

  • What is occupational therapy and what kinds of things she helps her patients with
  • Why she pursued such a demanding academic goal (hint, it has something to do with proving something to herself…) 
  • How Jen always knew she was different but was only diagnosed with ADHD in the...

Healers and Dealers

blog mental health Nov 26, 2020

I've just got to rant about something that has been making me just a little bit crazy, ever since I went to grad school in the early 90s. The number of people who become therapists, coaches, energy workers, and every brand of healer, without working through their own baggage. There I said it. 

I believe we need to deal before we can heal. We need to deal with our own brokenness, our own emotional scar tissue, our own traumas, and dramas before we are truly equipped to help another...

Not Giving a Fuck

podcast Nov 24, 2020
 

How do you feel and what do you do when someone you care about tells you that your plans and goals won’t work or points out what they least like about you? We have heard so many people telling us to not care about what others think, but is that even possible?

They say we should not care about what they think about us, our business, our marketing, our message, our price point. We also hear that we shouldn't pay attention to what our competitors do or listen to negative reviews.

Expect the Unexpected

adhd mastery blog Nov 18, 2020

I just arrived at my hotel for a four-day conference. My Uber driver was right on time, at the ungodly hour of 4:30 AM. The Alaska Airlines flight from Portland to Orlando was also on time. I got to sit in the exit aisle, so my 34" inseams were fully extended. The guy seated next to me used the restroom as often as I did, so I didn't even need to create a hassle over that. There was even an empty seat between us, so my stuff could spread itself out. Flight attendants were personable and...

Sleep Your Way to Success with Special Guest Yishan Xu, PhD

podcast Nov 17, 2020
 

Many entrepreneurs are not getting enough sleep.  This is partly due to the hustle culture of entrepreneurship and partly because they tend to bootstrap their business, even when they can afford to hire or outsource.  I work with female entrepreneurs who identify with ADHD traits, and I can say with full confidence that very few of them are getting the kind of sleep that they know they should (and wish they could.) 

This is our first guest expert interview, with sleep...

Watch Your Language

brain stuff Nov 12, 2020

I love me some colorful, dramatic language. Witty banter, sarcasm, dry humor, gallows humor, all of it. What I don't love is how so many people make themselves totally stressed out without even being aware of it, simply because of the language they use to describe things. For example, have you ever noticed how often people, especially women, I'm sorry to say, describe a situation that was inconvenient, frustrating, maybe even somewhat infuriating as "horrific"? Or how about describing running...

Learning and Unlearning

podcast Nov 10, 2020
 

There are many who would like to become entrepreneurs but do not know where to start. Some might get discouraged because they think that they are not “born” to be one. I’m still not certain I believe that there's such a thing as an entrepreneurial personality type, but there are definitely traits that lend themselves well to self-employment.

Some may have learned these traits from their entrepreneurial parents, while others, who never thought that they’d be...

Out of One Box, and Into Another

blog confidence Nov 05, 2020

The human brain loves to identify, label and categorize things. It's how we learn and how the brain can store so much information without ever having an upgrade, or even an update, across the entire span of human life. It's really quite amazing but is also the source of considerable suffering, mainly because there is no such thing as an operations manual for humans. If you are lucky enough to stumble upon this information, it definitely helps you understand why you are the way you are, and...
