Who Do You Think You Are?

blog mindset Aug 12, 2020

Human beings love to label themselves. Woman. Married. Coach. Buddhist. Dog lover. Coffee drinker. We also love to label others. It's easier to remember people when you have a way to sort and categorize them. It's just human nature and our brains are wired to do it automatically. But, even though it's the way we operate, and there's no doubt that putting labels on people makes it easier to sort and file them than just trying to recall every single individual characteristic, there is a great...

Get Over Yourself Already

blog confidence Aug 05, 2020

There's a reason you're not where you're "supposed to be." You know what I mean. Living that bigger, more badass and infinitely better life that you've been dreaming of and vision boarding and manifesting so hard it hurts. And in spite of all the victim mindset bullshit that you are absolutely convinced is simply "speaking your truth" and being authentic, somewhere deep down, I mean really deep, you know you're lying to yourself because you're scared shitless of actually having what you say...

I Want to Clone Myself

blog mindset Jul 29, 2020

I was really rooting for Dolly. She had become almost an overnight celebrity, not just among scientists, but with people like me. The ones who have more dreams and wishes than they can possibly explore in one, a limited lifetime. Maybe that's why I embraced Buddhism. The idea of rebirth. I might not remember what I did, or who I was the last go-around, but at least I'll have another chance. I know that's not the intention of the Buddhist path. Other Buddhists aspire to escape the cycle of...

Adrenaline Junkie

adhd mastery blog Jul 22, 2020

I'm not proud of it, but I'm not denying it anymore either. For most of my adult life, I have been an adrenaline junkie. The sweet, sweet feeling of high octane stress chemicals coursing through my veins was my drug of choice. And the best part was that I never even had to do anything illegal to get my fix. It was honestly almost too easy. All I had to do was procrastinate on stuff that was moderate to severely important, like writing a term paper or filing my tax return, holding off to the...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

Drive & Overdrive

blog the driven woman Jun 10, 2020

So, you love being a driven woman, most of the time.  Hell, let's be honest here, nearly all the time. Except when your driven nature gets you into trouble; with your health, your career, or with other people. Hey, it happens. When you have all this awesomeness, sometimes, it's just too much for the situation. And let's face it, we aren't always the best at downshifting when we need to. Sometimes, the need for speed just gets the better of us and the next thing we know, we are in a ditch...
