How to Find Your “THING” by Owning Your Story

May 4, 2021

Have you ever felt like you weren't "expert enough"? Maybe you found yourself looking to the left or right and saying things like "someone already does that" or even "I don't want to do the same thing everyday."  In today's episode, we talk about how to find your thing by seeing what really matters to you.  This is a brain dumping exercise that helps you to figure out your skills, passions and life experiences.  Look at this connection point of all of these and analyze the story behind that change or transformation.  

Let yourself look at your hard stuff and own your progress of getting to the other side of something or even make the next right steps forward.  When you focus on the hard stuff you've been through then you will find the skills, passions and life experiences that are tied to emotion and become bigger and more important than just some craft, hobby or normal "idea."

3 Things I didn’t know were ADHD related and Rejection Sensitive Dysphoria

April 24, 2021

Rejection Sensitivity Dysphoria is when you are emotionally sensitive to a perceived rejection or criticism by someone you care about.  You feel like you are falling in some way and the reaction can be more extreme than in neurotypicals.  

Stimming- Stimmung is self stimulation and is repetitive sounds, movements, words etc.  It could be twirling your hair, biting your nails, but is harmless typically. 

Body Mirroring- A strategy used to get things done by having someone with you to get things done and keep you company.  

Do you do any of these?  Did you know they were related to adhd?

What do you do with an Idea? and the ONE thing I want you to give yourself as an ADHD entrepreneur

We discuss a hard decision I had to make and also the importance of getting your ideas out into the world.  So what is your big idea? I'd love to hear them and cheer you on.

5 Hacks to Healthy Habits and ending the year strong

5 Hacks to Healthy Habits and ending the year strong

December 9, 2020

What a year! 

Now that it's getting colder and darker earlier I could feel my energy drop.  I did several things to get my energy back up and wanted to share with you some tried and true ways to protect your energy and prioritize your health.  I know everyone says, "put your mask on first" but do you prioritize it when you have a deadline after procrastinating?  It's hard to make yourself do it in these circumstances and so let's get intentional and do it together. 

Commit. Community. Connection

1.) Isolate - Prioritize time alone whether that be a walk outside, running an errand or even a shower!  After two weeks quarantining a meal out and about is going to feel like a vacation for me so fresh air and the power of putting your shoes on is real!  While people need people to get through stuff I want you to prioritize even just 15 minutes alone a day so that you can reflect, breath, pray or be.  For whatever reason just "Be-ing" is underrated compared to "Do-ing" so we need to make some intentional adjustments there!

 

2.) Generate Movement-  I'm not even saying this so that you lose that quarantine 15, but the mental benefits of movement are huge too!  I want you to pick an amount of time you want to commit to moving and just do it.  Even if it is some squats before you jump into the shower, some squats while waiting for that coffee to reheat for the second time or going for a walk. 

 

3.) Moderate-  Pick something you want to moderate.  Maybe you want to slay the sugar dragon, declutter your house, or manage your carbs.  Pick something and make it specific, measurable and realistic and focus on this one thing. 

 

4.) Regulate- Ok so you said what you want to moderate, now we need to figure out how you want to track that progress.  Do you want to download an app to track your food or movement?  Maybe you will take measurements or get a huge water bottle.  

 

5.)  Create-  Remember this is a time to get back to basics.  Remove so much input and focus on creating. This creating time doesn't need to be for monetization, but it can be for service or even just you.  When is the last time you dropped all the business to dos and just created whatever you wanted? Come on over to the facebook group or find me on instagram and tag me with your creations.  I can't wait to see what you make when you remove all the noise.

How to go from Idea to Execution as a Squirrelpreneur

How to go from Idea to Execution as a Squirrelpreneur

December 8, 2020

3 steps to go from Idea to Execution as a Squirrelpreneur or Jack of all trades

  1. Idea 
  2. Dream
  3. Goals

But... how?

Brain dump all of your ideas and look at the times in your lives that you have had hard stuff and overcame.  I want you to think about yourself and all your life experiences and I want you think about the things that fire you up, tick you off or stir up some kind of emotion.  News flash, these feelings mean it's important and you care.  Caring is the main step in actually sticking with your idea.  This makes it important and helps you to redirect when you get off track instead of quit. 

 

DREAM= Big Picture

What is the impact you want to create in the world?

If you focus on the results and the solution that you can create for someone then you will have fuel.  Energy is key in finishing anything.  This key in thinking of the big picture for your vision and WHY you are doing this in the first place.  You need to tie that vision to your emotion to honor your hard stuff and use that to fuel you up when you feel your energy deplete.

 

Let yourself dream and figure out the answer to the question, "What do I want?"  Stop doing all the things that everyone says to do and slow down and zero in on what you actually want to do and why it is important to you and your impact.  

 

Goals-The small stuff

Gain traction in your goals and finally get that idea into action by breaking up that big picture dream into smaller chunks.  I just got the image of my kindergartener trying to read a big word.. wouldn't you think he would give up if I didn't teach him in chunks?  Same thing applies here.. allow yourself to get small wins along the way.  Also, if you are ADHD, distractible or a rebel like me then x3 your timeline, plan time to rest with cycle syncing in mind (check out my episode on that here) and set yourself up for success.

Are you in a rut?  10 ways to get UNSTUCK and reset a negative mindset

Are you in a rut? 10 ways to get UNSTUCK and reset a negative mindset

November 20, 2020

Covid. Time change. Colder weather >>OH MY!

Did the vision of Dorothy going down the yellow brick road come to mind.  "Lions, Tigers, Bears OH MY! haha seriously though as if Covid wasn't already putting fear and worry and stress onto us, we are compiling it now with coldness and darkness here in Ohio.  It's making me feel like days are on a loop and just so in a rut. 

Wallow or Gratitude. Which do you choose?

After I lost my mom in 2011, I found that I was in this hole of grief that felt like pushing a door closed with rushing water on the other side.  I would push and push with all of my might so that no water could get through for fear that I would drown.  I later learned that if I cracked the door, felt through the ick and experienced my emotions then it slowed the rate of the water and it allowed me to keep afloat.  Holding this imaginary door closed is exhausting and eventually the water comes in, so why not crack the door.  It's uncomfortable and sad and all the things, but so needed. 

First of all, don't get it twisted with this heading title.  I don't think there is anything wrong with wallowing.  In a way I feel like it's warranted from being strong too long or pushing past the days in some ways.  Take a breath, a rest, cry in the shower or finally say "No" to adding more to your plate and then when you are all done stand up in gratitude with these 10 ways to get you back to you.  

In todays' episode you'll learn 10 ways to get unstuck and take that next right step.  Negativity is natural and normal.  It's easier to see what's going wrong then what is going right, but when you are ready to get back up I hope these tips help you.  If you need someone to lean on in the process come over to our free community on facebook by clicking here. 

10 ways to get UNSTUCK and reset a negative mindset in todays episode here.
