In the Middle of a Shit Storm, Life Hands You Free Toilet Paper

podcast Jul 20, 2020
 

Everyone gets to experience the ups and downs of life. There are no exemptions. There are moments when things do not go our way or something unexpected happens, and it is a situation we don’t want to be in. When confronted with difficult circumstances, how you perceive and respond to them will make things better or worse.

There are some people who tend to look at the bright side regardless of what’s happening to them. They see their lives as something that they co-create...

Growth Mindset : Fixed Mindset

blog mindset Jul 15, 2020

Maybe you consider yourself to be a life long learner, like me. In fact, I am pretty insatiable when it comes to learning new things. I am always up to my eyelashes in some course of study, devouring everything I can get my hands on about it until I am satisfied that I know as much as I need and want to know. One of the subjects I literally never get tired of is how the brain actually works and how to use your mind to get the most out of your brain. Some people call it cognitive training or...

Zooming In , Zooming Out

podcast Jul 13, 2020
 

When we are so focused on a goal, we can forget to stop and take in the big picture. Most driven people tend to zoom in or hyper-focus on their goals and on doing whatever is necessary to achieve them. Paying so much attention to those things means everything else going on around them just fades to black.

Being hyper-focused on our goals is a good thing but we don’t want to forget to zoom out as well. Without stepping back or zooming out and looking at the big picture, we may be...

Desperately Seeking Dopamine

adhd mastery blog Jul 09, 2020

It was many, many years before I learned one of the reasons, if not the key reason behind my drivenness, ADHD (for those unfamiliar with those 4 letters, they are shorthand for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.) It's actually pretty ironic, but my own diagnosis of ADHD came many years after two of my children (from different fathers) were diagnosed (can you spell common denominator?) And years after I wrote my masters thesis on whether ADHD persisted into adulthood (which was not...

Change Your Story, Change Your Life

podcast Jul 06, 2020
 

We all have stories, stories about ourselves, and stories about others. Some of these stories inspire us or drive us to do better. When our stories strengthen our belief in ourselves, our actions and decisions will reinforce them. If we believe we’ll do well and that we’re beautiful inside and out, these beliefs will be reflected in all that we think and do. 

 

But before this happens, before we can truly live in alignment with our full potential,  it is...

The Myth of Job Security

blog entrepreneurship Jul 02, 2020

I've heard countless people say they would never work for themselves because they need job security. They typically go on to explain their rationale, such as having children to support, a non-working spouse or a chronic medical condition necessitating group health insurance, or all of the above. Some will speak wistfully about the lure of self-employment, as though it is the ultimate work experience and they truly hope they will be able to achieve it "someday", while others scoff at the...

Late to the ADHD Party

podcast Jun 29, 2020
 

One of the reasons that women tend to be diagnosed with ADHD later in life than men is because our symptoms appear to be different but if you look past society’s expectations, just as many girls are likely to be identified as boys. 

 

Women with ADHD, depending on their subtype and especially if their hyperactivity is mental instead of physical, may not recognize themselves as someone with ADHD. 

 

Many women would be considered high-functioning, as well, but...

Obligation Management

blog boundaries Jun 25, 2020

Listen. If you are a driven woman, you have simply got to get in control of your day. Otherwise, it will control you. I am a bit of a productivity fanatic, so I am always on the lookout for every new app, brain hack, and planner that promises to help me get more done in less time. BUT, none of those tools are going to make a bit of difference unless you make and follow some simple rules about where your time goes, and to whom. 

For years, I called my efforts to get shit done "time...

Don't Suppress the Mess

podcast Jun 22, 2020

 

 

Driven women have their own idea and way of how to get things done. Most of the time it is to an extent where the best must be achieved. Others may perceive it as being too much of a perfectionist or demanding. And because of this, most women who work in the corporate world and decide to venture into independent entrepreneurship often find themselves loading too much work for themselves because of hesitancy to ask for help.

 

Working with a business coach has loads of...

Late Adopters and Early Adapters

adhd mastery blog Jun 18, 2020

It wasn't until three separate people who all know me well and have personalities very similar to my own - my best friend, my daughter and one of my favorite clients. within the span of one week, all told me they were binge-watching a new show on Netflix and know I would love it until I finally got curious enough about it to check it out. And, as it turns out, they were right. My husband is away on a four-day business trip, which was more than enough time to blast through the entire season...
