Are You Intimidating?

confidence podcast Jan 05, 2021
 

This episode is a solo show, in which Diann shares her history of being told she is intimidating and what she made it mean.

The label might sound a little different and the feedback might be packaged as well-meaning...

Happiness is 50-50

mindset podcast Dec 08, 2020
 

When was the last time you remember being sincerely happy with what’s going on in your life? Most people have something they wanted to have or to be in their life, and also take what they do have for granted. Most of us are more focused on what we think of as unhappiness or misfortune than we are on luck and joy. 

Happiness may be vague and considered immeasurable by scientists, but what if I told you that there’s a way how you can live a peaceful and happy life...

Not Giving a Fuck

podcast Nov 24, 2020
 

How do you feel and what do you do when someone you care about tells you that your plans and goals won’t work or points out what they least like about you? We have heard so many people telling us to not care about what others think, but is that even possible?

They say we should not care about what they think about us, our business, our marketing, our message, our price point. We also hear that we shouldn't pay attention to what our competitors do or listen to negative reviews.

Sleep Your Way to Success with Special Guest Yishan Xu, PhD

podcast Nov 17, 2020
 

Many entrepreneurs are not getting enough sleep.  This is partly due to the hustle culture of entrepreneurship and partly because they tend to bootstrap their business, even when they can afford to hire or outsource.  I work with female entrepreneurs who identify with ADHD traits, and I can say with full confidence that very few of them are getting the kind of sleep that they know they should (and wish they could.) 

This is our first guest expert interview, with sleep...

Learning and Unlearning

podcast Nov 10, 2020
 

There are many who would like to become entrepreneurs but do not know where to start. Some might get discouraged because they think that they are not “born” to be one. I’m still not certain I believe that there's such a thing as an entrepreneurial personality type, but there are definitely traits that lend themselves well to self-employment.

Some may have learned these traits from their entrepreneurial parents, while others, who never thought that they’d be...

Do you procrastinate on doing things even though they are important? When we run a business, we need to do the boring yet important stuff, but sometimes we only do them when we “feel” like it or when we are running out of time.
