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...

Client Success Story with Tracey Watts-Cirino

brain stuff Apr 19, 2021
 

Some of my most popular episodes are the Client Success Stories, and I am sure that this one will be no exception.  Today’s guest, Tracey Watts-Cirino, was a successful 20-year beauty industry leader and small business owner when she decided to hire me to help her figure out why she wasn’t reaching her next-level goals and her true potential.  

On the outside, Tracey appeared to have “all the things” - a long-term happy marriage, two thriving...

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...

Learning the Hard Way

adhd mastery Apr 06, 2021

Does everybody need to learn the hard way in order to learn anything, or it is just me? I went through so many situations that, looking back, now seem like unnecessary suffering, but at the time, I truly didn't see that I was making a choice. It wasn't until I had accumulated five root canals until I realized that there might be a pattern. Of course, there was. I was clenching my teeth apparently all night long, every night, and through much of the day as well. It was one of the consequences...

The Surprisingly Simple Secret to Productivity

productivity Mar 31, 2021

I read a lot of books. I mean a lot. Nearly all of them are non fiction. If I want to be entertained, I'll watch something on Netflix or go to a concert or play. If I want to be educated, informed or enlightened, I go with a book. Learning is my jam. If it wasn't for the fact that I am a people person and I need to be physically active to feel good, I could just read and learn and take classes in whatever I was interested in at the time for the rest of my life. I have to push myself to do...

Too Many Ideas is Worse Than Not Enough

adhd mastery Mar 29, 2021
 

If you heard my last solo episode, the one I called Do the Thing,  you’ll see that I am on a roll. You see, I work with creative female entrepreneurs and while each of them is unique,  many of their struggles are far too common.  

This week, I’m going to share my thoughts about how having a super creative brain, which is always spouting one amazing idea after another is actually a problem. Not a problem as in you should feel sorry for me, boo hoo,...

A Hare in a Tortoise Suit

adhd mastery Mar 23, 2021

We all want to reach our goals faster, take the shortcuts and get more done. After winging it for years, and relying exclusively on my high energy and workaholic tendencies to pull me forward, I finally admitted that I needed a system. It wasn't that I couldn't get shit done, on the contrary. I could produce more than three other people combined, and make it look like magic because I did it so fast. It's just that those periods of killer productivity only seemed to happen when I was staring...
