What's Holding You Back?

There are six common patterns of beliefs and behaviors that tend to hold female entrepreneurs back, particularly those with ADHD tendencies, and in this straight-talking solo episode, I am going to discuss what to watch for, why they happen and most importantly, what to do about it. 

Some of us are lucky to just have one of them, but these patterns tend to travel in packs, so it's likely that you're dealing with a couple, several or even all of them. No matter how smart, strong,...

Incorporating Buddhist Wisdom for a More Mindful Business

Drawing from my background as a cognitive behavioral psychotherapist who embraced the principles and practices of Buddhism about twenty years ago, in this rather personal solo episode, I share how mindfulness can be applied to business, emphasizing the importance of reducing unnecessary suffering and approaching business challenges with self-awareness and empathy. 

Despite not fitting the stereotypical image of a Buddhist, I have found these practices absolutely transformational and...

5 Uncomfortable Truths I Needed to Learn Again in 2023

From the pitfalls of overcommitting to the false allure of doing everything yourself, I’m sharing some valuable insights from the uncomfortable truths and painful realities I experienced this past year. 2023 was a rough year for many solopreneurs, who learned the hard way that it was anything but business as usual.  Potential clients were fewer, sales cycles were longer and the status quo just wasn’t cutting it.  One of the hardest things about being a solopreneur is...

Maybe it's not "Just" Procrastination

If you are anything like me, you have a tendency to procrastinate. You procrastinate on the trivial, but also on things that are important to you and when you do, it can create a lot of seriously negative consequences.   You might even think of yourself as a “procrastinator” (something I do not recommend, and talk about why, in this episode.)   

I believe that everyone procrastinates on some tasks, some of the time,  but it’s just too easy to dump...

Life Lessons for When Shit Happens

After many years of “winging it” as my preferred modus operandi, I knew I would have to become less spontaneous and more of a planner when I decided to launch this podcast two years ago.  Once I decided to commit to it,  I learned to become a planner and even found I liked it.  But sometimes, in spite of our planning, things go sideways and shit happens. My husband and I just relocated for the second time in barely three years and the experience has been full of...

How to Deal with Fear, Uncertainty & Doubt (FUD)

Everyone has heard of FOMO, but have you also heard of FUD?   I hadn’t either, until a recent conversation with my son Andre on the topic of bitcoin.  FUD stands for Fear, Uncertainty & Doubt and I am going to guess that these emotions are something you are more than familiar with, especially during these last couple of years.  Once I heard the term and learned its history, I actually scrapped the podcast I was planning to create for this week and recorded this one...

The NFA (No-F*cking-Around) Money Mindset with Dr Amanda Barrientez

Ever since I was a teenager, I have loved a good makeover.  I am completely enthralled by the dramatic transformations on RuPaul’s Drag Race and Property Brothers, but I am also a sucker for a great dog rescue story where an allegedly aggressive Pittie becomes another family’s Good Boi.  But, the stories that inspire me most are those of women who had their back against the wall and came out swinging.   No matter what is in her rearview mirror, when a resilient and...

Client Success Story: Meet Dallas

When you are a highly educated professional woman who knows she is capable of so much more than you are demonstrating in your career and personal life, it can be tough to figure out where the real problem lies. Is it your motivation, your expectations, your habits, your mindset, or a combination of all of the above, and how do you figure it out? 

Luckily for my client, Dallas, one of her friends had worked with me and told her what a great experience she had, and then she listened to a...
