Helping Women Take Their Next Step with Tricia Dempsey

entrepreneurship podcast Jul 09, 2021
 

Today’s guest, Tricia Dempsey always knew she was driven and ambitious, but she got a lot of messages about what girls can’t do growing up that lead her to make choices that felt like a too-tight pair of shoes.  Dad said OK to playing basketball, but when Tricia wanted to go into sales and got a hard NO, she chose the socially sanctioned path of teaching, which she did until she just couldn’t face a room of middle schoolers anymore.

When I first started coaching female entrepreneurs,  we focused a lot on productivity and time management, because my clients wanted to get more done.  So, I taught them the latest techniques to identify their most important goals and to accomplish them more efficiently.  Over time, our coaching conversations had shifted to energy management - when to do our creative work and when to do the tasks that require more focused effort. But, they were still overwhelmed and...

The Mentally Healthy Entrepreneur

Entrepreneurs, freelancers, side hustlers, and gig workers make up a small, but growing slice of the economy.

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...

Sheeple to Wolf Pack

entrepreneurship Jan 19, 2021

One of the inevitable consequences of trying so hard to fit in is that I became a bit of a chameleon. I got so good at it that I didn't even realize the extent to which I was masking myself in order to be accepted by others. It never went so far that it could be considered being a phony or actually lying to people, it was just that I showed them the parts of me that they would like and approve of, while hiding the rest. You could say I was my own best agent and I was always auditioning for...
