Immediate Gratification

mindset May 11, 2021

There's a reason why you usually go for the cookie, instead of the celery stick. It's the same reason why you will be scrolling through your Facebook or Instagram feed when you should be doing your laundry or paying your bills. It's not your lack of willpower or weak character or bad genes and it's not entirely your fault. It's your brain. Now the bad news is that this is the only brain you're ever gonna have, so you've got to work with it. The good news is that you can train your brain to be...

Is Rejection Sensitivity Hurting Your Business?

entrepreneurship May 10, 2021
 

If you are an entrepreneur, a creative person or an indie professional who needs to make offers, close sales, market their products or services and have a presence in the world of social media, I don’t have to tell you that dealing with real or perceived rejection is one of the issues you need to gain mastery over in order to stay in business and make a living.  

But, rejection sensitivity is not a disorder, a mental health diagnosis or illness.  It is also not a...

How to Wake Up

adhd mastery May 04, 2021

Have you ever noticed that your mood, energy, and motivation always track together? When one is up, so are the others and when one is trending down, it pulls the other two down with it.  For years I thought this meant that if I was in a down mood or just wasn't feeling like doing what needed to be done, that there was nothing I could do about it. In fact, I "knew" what kind of day I was going to have the moment I woke up in the morning.

You know how some mornings you just feel shitty as...

Ask & You Shall Receive

confidence Apr 28, 2021

My first career was in medical sales, at a time when women were just starting to infiltrate the traditionally male-dominated field. I started off as a sales rep for a major pharmaceutical company on a salary plus bonus. Because of the way sales are tracked, I only got the bonus if my sales district met its quota. In other words, I really wasn't incentivized to bust my ass and be a superstar because when I did, I was carrying the slackers in the district. A few years later, I scored a major...

Different, Not Deficient

confidence Apr 26, 2021
 

It makes me angry that acknowledging a mental health diagnosis and receiving help is still a source of stigma and shame.  I am grateful to the brave and clever people who have taken to YouTube, Instagram, and TikTok, not to mention those who have started podcasts, to normalize mental health conditions by dropping their masks and sharing their struggles. They have done more to raise awareness and spread hope in the last few years than the psychiatric community has been able to do...

Flies on the Windshield

adhd mastery Apr 20, 2021

Sooner or later, you're gonna encounter a fly on the windshield situation. Every driven woman does. It's pretty much inevitable in business, and in life, in fact, if it hasn't happened already, it's just a matter of time. I'm not trying to scare you or piss you off if that's more your style. It's just that I learned so much the hard way and I want to show you all the shortcuts and point out all the blindspots I didn't know about, so you can get where you want to go without so much engine...

Look Before You Leap

adhd mastery Apr 13, 2021

I've always loved being energetic, willing to take risks, a quick start that goes into action without too much deliberation. On the flip side of that trait is the strong possibility that I would fling myself into a course of action that really wasn't thought out and didn't turn out the way I imagined it would, I even imagined how it would turn out at all. My friends and associates always thought I was such a confident, bold, go-getter (and I was, and still am) but many of my decisions...

Change, Habits & Fear, Oh My!

confidence Apr 12, 2021
 

Lately, we have been talking a lot about fear.  In last week’s guest expert interview with John Sovec, we talked about How to Keep Fear From Holding You Back. In this week’s solo episode, we will continue on the theme by discussing how it’s natural to feel that change is hard, how to deal with the fear of change, and the power of habit to make things easier.  

It’s all in understanding how the brain works, so I will help you understand how to put...
