Smarter Shopping

adhd mastery Jun 02, 2021

Not so many years ago, shopping was an all-day or at least a half-day experience, especially if you needed to find something important. You had to know what you wanted, where to find it, the store hours, where to park, whether they accepted cash, checks, or credit cards, and just in case the item wasn't just right the store's return policy.

Unless you actually enjoyed this kind of thing, it was quite the ordeal, and you were limited to the items that the stores at your local mall decided to...

Focus, Follow Through & Finish

mindset May 27, 2021

I've been specializing in working with high-achieving, highly creative women who struggle to reach their potential for the last few years. They are my people, and, the more time I spend with them, the more times I see a particular pattern of behavior. Now, it's not that this pattern never happens with people who aren't high achieving but underperforming women, but that it happens with such regularity with those who are. And, when it's happening, they don't realize it's a problem, until later,...

1 YEAR PODVERSARY: Reflections on Finding My Voice

podcast May 25, 2021
 

 

While slogging away on the treadmill at 5:30 this morning, I had Rachel Hollis in my earholes. She was answering a listener question about making a hard decision. Her advice was spot on. Just choose. Choose and commit. This will get you into motion, instead of overthinking and spinning your wheels. Once you've gotten rolling, you can reassess, but if you're still in the starting blocks, you have no data to analyze whether you made the right choice, or not.

By now, I was...

Triggered

brain stuff May 19, 2021

It seems like everywhere I go lately, there are trigger warnings. Trigger warnings on podcast episodes, trigger warnings on blog posts, trigger warnings on YouTube videos. I even overheard a woman who was about to confide something to another woman at my gym preface by saying "hashtag-trigger warning" before she started spilling.  Back in the day, we used to talk about pushing someone's buttons. Same deal. Only these days, it seems like a whole lot more people are getting a whole lot...

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...
