New technology possesses an undeniable allure, especially for those of us with ADHD. When we find something intriguing, we tend to dive headfirst into it, immersing ourselves and becoming experts in the subject. That is in our nature but it doesn’t always serve us. When you are looking to add new technology or software solutions to your business do you spend hours (that you didn’t intend to) researching and likely not ...

Impact of All or Nothing Thinking
For entrepreneurs, all-or-nothing thinking reflects in areas such as time management, task prioritization, and perfectionism. This mindset can lead to a constant battle with scheduling disruptions, forgetting tasks, and dealing with an overload of responsibilities.

One of the blessings of the pandemic is that we now see a great example of why, as a business owner, we need to be prepared so our team members and/or family can keep our business going if we are sick for an extended period of time or if we pass. 

Maybe you're thinking, where would I even start to get all that set up?

Happy 2023 Ya’ll! 

I don’t know about you but I’m feeling really good about the upcoming year. Don’t get me wrong, my sarcastic side still wants to jump in and say that to make such a statement is naively optimistic especially given the last three years, but sarcasm aside I truly am excited and its not just wishful optimism.

First, I'm hosting two free events in January:

If you’re neurodivergent, you likely struggle with focus. You spend hours and hours (and hours!) trying to get a task done but are derailed by distractions from every direction. And most of these distractions are manufactured by YOU. The 40+ tabs on your computer, the smartphone “calling your name,” the random idea that you need to research RIGHT THIS MINUTE. And, my favorite distraction, social medi...

It’s that time of year again. You know, the time when you’ve blocked off the holidays so you can relax and enjoy them with your family. But then a client needs something from you so you decide to “just” work that one day.


In reality, that one call or one day will most likely turn into you completely cannibalizing your time off. So when it’s time to go back to ...

You’ve probably been told that because you’re neurodivergent, you’ll struggle with being organized. Because it’s all so overwhelming to deal with “stuff.” As someone who is both neurodivergent and incredibly organized, I call bullshit.


It’s not about one or the other, it’s about finding the systems that work for you.

We hear from all the business coaches and growth strategists about the importance of niching down in order to grow. It makes sense…The more narrow our offering and ideal clients, the easier it is for others to refer us.


But this week’s guest, Cara Steinmann, doesn’t think we should niche down but rather “niche up.” That doesn’t mean you build out a bigger clie...

One of the biggest challenges of many business owners is managing their money. Not because they’re not making money, but because they aren’t taking care of it. Without some clear actions around your money on a consistent basis, you might not make the best decisions about it.
