Change, Habits & Fear, Oh My!

confidence Apr 12, 2021
 

Lately, we have been talking a lot about fear.  In last week’s guest expert interview with John Sovec, we talked about How to Keep Fear From Holding You Back. In this week’s solo episode, we will continue on the theme by discussing how it’s natural to feel that change is hard, how to deal with the fear of change, and the power of habit to make things easier.  

It’s all in understanding how the brain works, so I will help you understand how to put...

Learning the Hard Way

adhd mastery Apr 06, 2021

Does everybody need to learn the hard way in order to learn anything, or it is just me? I went through so many situations that, looking back, now seem like unnecessary suffering, but at the time, I truly didn't see that I was making a choice. It wasn't until I had accumulated five root canals until I realized that there might be a pattern. Of course, there was. I was clenching my teeth apparently all night long, every night, and through much of the day as well. It was one of the consequences...

How to Keep Fear from Holding You Back with John Sovec

I am excited to share today’s guest, John Sovec with you.  The Driven Woman Podcast is produced with the driven but distracted female entrepreneur in mind, so you might be surprised to see a man joining us as a guest.  

I invited John because he is a therapist and coach, a writer, an internationally recognized speaker. He is also a  yoga and mindfulness teacher and one of my closest friends. One of the things that John is an expert in is how to move through fear,...

The Surprisingly Simple Secret to Productivity

productivity Mar 31, 2021

I read a lot of books. I mean a lot. Nearly all of them are non fiction. If I want to be entertained, I'll watch something on Netflix or go to a concert or play. If I want to be educated, informed or enlightened, I go with a book. Learning is my jam. If it wasn't for the fact that I am a people person and I need to be physically active to feel good, I could just read and learn and take classes in whatever I was interested in at the time for the rest of my life. I have to push myself to do...

Too Many Ideas is Worse Than Not Enough

adhd mastery Mar 29, 2021
 

If you heard my last solo episode, the one I called Do the Thing,  you’ll see that I am on a roll. You see, I work with creative female entrepreneurs and while each of them is unique,  many of their struggles are far too common.  

This week, I’m going to share my thoughts about how having a super creative brain, which is always spouting one amazing idea after another is actually a problem. Not a problem as in you should feel sorry for me, boo hoo,...

A Hare in a Tortoise Suit

adhd mastery Mar 23, 2021

We all want to reach our goals faster, take the shortcuts and get more done. After winging it for years, and relying exclusively on my high energy and workaholic tendencies to pull me forward, I finally admitted that I needed a system. It wasn't that I couldn't get shit done, on the contrary. I could produce more than three other people combined, and make it look like magic because I did it so fast. It's just that those periods of killer productivity only seemed to happen when I was staring...

Toxic Entrepreneurship with Casey Jourdan

entrepreneurship Mar 22, 2021
 

I am excited to share today’s guest, Casey Jourdan with you.  Casey is a business strategist and mentor who works with early-stage, primarily female entrepreneurs. 

Casey rejected the traditional life of the 9-5 so-called secure career path with benefits.  This is not just because of the effects of the impact to her brain from having been blown up in Iraq while she was serving in the military, but also as a result of some residual PTSD, but because of her feelings...

The Confidence Dilemma

confidence Mar 17, 2021

The topic of gender and what it means to be male, female, or one of the more recent editions to the gender identity spectrum is gaining a lot of attention in recent years.  Much of our gender identity is shaped by cultural expectations and if you go along with what your culture tells you is expected of someone of your gender, you receive social approval.  To the degree that you don't conform to these norms,  you may be the target of everything from bullying and alienation to...

Do The Thing

adhd mastery Mar 12, 2021
 

I have been planning to write a book for at least twenty years. I would tell myself one day, I'm going to write a book, maybe even a whole series of books. Other people would hear me speaking passionately about my area of expertise and urge me to write a book and I would always say it's on the list (as in The Bucket List.) About ten years ago, I started buying and reading books by writers, for writers, about writing. I really enjoyed them and they inspired me. I signed up for an...

It's About Time

adhd mastery Mar 10, 2021

One of the things about having ADHD that is pretty stereotypical is having a poor sense of time awareness. One of my ADHD mentors, Eric Tivers of ADHD Rewired calls it Time Blindness. That's a pretty accurate description, at least in my life. I actually have met a few folks with ADHD who are always early for any scheduled event, but they are in the minority. The rest of us are perpetually late, at least until we finally decide that it's about time we were on time. I prefer to call it Time...
