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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

Make Success a No Brainer

The more experienced I become as a business coach, the more convinced I am that the secret to success is understanding how the human brain works and how to outsmart it.  Our brains do not care if we are happy, fulfilled, or reaching our potential.  They are giving themselves an A+ if we are still alive because that is actually our brain’s job description.  Being successful requires that you use your mind to bypass the brain’s default programming and in this episode,...

The Multipassionate Creative Career with Sarah Mac

 

Growing up singing and dancing in the UK, Sarah Mac fell in love with the theater and decided that a career in the performing arts was the one for her.  A believer in manifesting opportunities in alignment with her desires, Sarah found herself taking advantage of one exciting experience after another. In a matter of years, her “say yes to everything” motto lead her to the edge of burnout and she realized she needed to find another way. 

Sarah reinvented...

Changing Your Mind, One Thought at a Time

 

I often say that human beings only have two problems: We are always thinking and we always believe ourselves. While this may sound sarcastic (and it probably is) the underlying truth is that for many of us, our thoughts are the source of our suffering, not our circumstances.  That’s not to say our circumstances might not need some changing, but plenty of us have everything we need to be healthy, happy, successful, and fulfilled and we aren’t, because of our...
