There are times when we are confronted with other people’s problems. We listen to them talk about their lives and sometimes, hear them complain. Many women find themselves involved in situations with other people that they had no intention of being in. Not only are we socialized to care about others, but even our estrogen hormone influences us to be more willing to put the needs of others before our own. If we are not intentional with how we respond to other people’s problems, it will disrupt our routines, our peace of mind, and the time we have available to deal with our own.Group coaching available this Fall 2020! Join the Ignition Group Coaching WaitlistYou are serious about addressing your distractibility, procrastination, and perfectionism & their impact on your business and life, and going through the process with like-minded and like brained women is exactly what you need.

Many people put pressure on themselves to figure out their path in life when they barely even know who they are. Those early messages from so-called authority figures can be hard to forget, especially when most people do seem to follow that advice, whether it suits them or not.Some people just pick and stick and never give themselves permission to change course and do something else. What they didn’t know is that there really is no one right way, not anymore. With the speed of change in the modern workplace, it’s really not such a great idea to get too attached to any one particular way of working or earning a living.If you find yourself wanting to do something else, maybe it's time to consider starting something new, whether it's in the same field or a new one. Group coaching available this Fall 2020! Join the Ignition Group Coaching WaitlistYou are serious about addressing your distractibility, procrastination, and perfectionism & their impact on your business and life, and going through the process with like-minded and like brained women is exactly what you need.

Perfectionism may seem to be a good trait, but when you procrastinate on your plans because you want everything to be just right, this becomes a hindrance to achieving your goals. The real definition of a perfectionist is not someone whose life is perfect, it's someone who believes that it could be, wishes it were and suffers because it isn't.A perfectionist sets very high expectations of themselves and others. They believe that a task is not finished when it does not meet their standards, or they never even begin a task unless they know they can do it perfectly. The standards that they set not only apply to how they work but it is also the same for how they evaluate other people’s performance. In this episode, I want to tell you how perfectionism can slow you down, and why we need to manage it. I AM a perfectionist and always have been, and I want to share with you how I deal with my perfectionism.Group coaching available this Fall 2020! Join the Ignition Group Coaching WaitlistYou are serious about addressing your distractibility, procrastination, and perfectionism & their impact on your business and life, and going through the process with like-minded and like brained women is exactly what you need.

Everyone gets to experience the ups and downs of life. There are no exemptions. There are moments when things do not go our way or something unexpected happens, and it is a situation we don’t want to be in. When confronted with difficult circumstances, how you perceive and respond to them will make things better or worse.There are some people who tend to look at the bright side regardless of what’s happening to them. They see their lives as something that they co-create and have control over. On the other hand, there are those who constantly complain about their situation and even blame themselves or others. They see life as something that is happening to them and believe that it’s just how it is. In this episode, I want to share with you how gratitude can transform your life from the inside out and how you truly hold the key to transforming your life, regardless of the circumstances. Group coaching available this Fall 2020! Join the Ignition Group Coaching WaitlistYou are serious about addressing your distractibility, procrastination, and perfectionism & their impact on your business and life, and going through the process with like-minded and like brained women is exactly what you need.

When we are so focused on a goal, we can forget to stop and take in the big picture. Most driven people tend to zoom in or hyper-focus on their goals and on doing whatever is necessary to achieve them. Paying so much attention to those things means everything else going on around them just fades to black. Being hyper-focused on our goals is a good thing but we don’t want to forget to zoom out as well. Without stepping back or zooming out and looking at the big picture, we may be missing out on what is truly important.  The ability to zoom in and zoom out is a mindfulness practice. This helps with distractibility, anxiety, and focus. In this episode, we talk about what it means to zoom in and zoom out and share an exercise on how to develop the awareness and skill.  This episode is brought to you by:The Driven Woman Facebook GroupThe place to be for like-minded and like-brained women who want an ADHD friendly business and life  (https://facebook.com/diannwingertcoaching) Diann Wingert CoachingIf you’re ready to invest in turbocharging your progress, with expert guidance, support, and accountability from a coach who really gets you and can shave decades off your learning curve  (https://www.diannwingertcoaching.com)  Social SharingFacebook:  https://www.facebook.com/diannwingertcoaching/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/coachdiannwingert/ LinkedIn:   https://www.linkedin.com/in/diannwingertcoaching/
We all have stories, stories about ourselves, and stories about others. Some of these stories inspire us or drive us to do better. When our stories strengthen our belief in ourselves, our actions and decisions will reinforce them. If we believe we’ll do well and that we’re beautiful inside and out, these beliefs will be reflected in all that we think and do. But before this happens, before we can truly live in alignment with our full potential,  it is important for women with ADHD to accept that we actually have ADHD.  We need to unload our old story and own up to the reality of being so much more than our anxiety, depression, or perfectionism. Women with ADHD need also to challenge their negative thoughts about themselves and redirect them into thinking of ways to do and be better, without judgment. In doing so, one must be kinder to oneself.Sometimes due to our rough childhood or unfortunate circumstances, we are lead to believe that we should more critical about ourselves in order to do our best. But sooner or later, we will realize this doesn’t actually work.  We can literally change our view of ourselves, our potential, our future, and our chances for success, by changing the story we have been telling ourselves. Once you change your story, you can truly change your life.This episode is brought to you by:The Driven Woman Facebook GroupThe place to be for like-minded and like-brained women who want an ADHD friendly business and life  (https://facebook.com/diannwingertcoaching) Diann Wingert CoachingIf you’re ready to invest in turbocharging your progress, with expert guidance, support, and accountability from a coach who really gets you and can shave decades off your learning curve  (https://www.diannwingertcoaching.com)  Social SharingFacebook:  https://www.facebook.com/diannwingertcoaching/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/coachdiannwingert/ LinkedIn:   https://www.linkedin.com/in/diannwingertcoaching/ 
Episode # 8 - Late to the ADHD PartyOne of the reasons that women tend to be diagnosed with ADHD later in life than men is because our symptoms appear to be different but if you look past society’s expectations, just as many girls are likely to be identified as boys.  Women with ADHD, depending on their subtype and especially if their hyperactivity is mental instead of physical, may not recognize themselves as someone with ADHD.  Many women would be considered high-functioning, as well, but they are still falling short of their true potential. In this episode, we talk about why and share an exercise for how to think about your history through a new lens. This episode is brought to you by:The Driven Woman Facebook GroupThe place to be for like-minded and like-brained women who want an ADHD friendly business and life  (https://facebook.com/diannwingertcoaching) Diann Wingert CoachingIf you’re ready to invest in turbocharging your progress, with expert guidance, support, and accountability from a coach who really gets you and can shave decades off your learning curve  (https://www.diannwingertcoaching.com)  Social SharingFacebook:  https://www.facebook.com/diannwingertcoaching/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/coachdiannwingert/ LinkedIn:   https://www.linkedin.com/in/diannwingertcoaching/
Driven women have their own idea and way of how to get things done. Most of the time it is to an extent where the best must be achieved. Others may perceive it as being too much of a perfectionist or demanding. And because of this, most women who work in the corporate world and decide to venture into independent entrepreneurship often find themselves loading too much work for themselves because of hesitancy to ask for help. Working with a business coach has loads of benefits, a particular one would be that with a coach, more perspectives and troubleshooting are covered to guarantee business to run smoothly and be more profitable. Help doesn’t have to be in the form of professional help all the time, though. Small groups or convened communities could also work. But before actually asking for help, you have to first admit that you need one. For women who have put up their own businesses or are about to put up their own businesses or are about to, it’s best to remember that there is no shame in asking for help if you’re having difficulty with work. Don’t be too hard on yourself. You don’t have to carry it all and walk the stairs, you can use a lift every now and then. Don’t suppress the mess, it’s meant to lead you to know yourself better and redirect you to the things that will serve your purpose.  The Driven Woman Facebook GroupThe place to be for like-minded and like-brained women who want an ADHD friendly business and life  (https://facebook.com/diannwingertcoaching) Diann Wingert CoachingIf you’re ready to invest in turbocharging your progress, with expert guidance, support, and accountability from a coach who really gets you and can shave decades off your learning curve  (https://www.diannwingertcoaching.com) Social SharingFacebook:  https://facebook.com/diannwingertcoachingInstagram: https://www.instagram.com/diannwingertcoaching/   LinkedIn:   https://www.linkedin.com/in/diannwingertcoaching/ 
Most of the time, people take delight or get excited more on the planning part of activities rather than the actual ‘doing’ part. Driven women are particularly not immune to this since they always have places they plan to go to, projects they want to get done, and people they want to meet. If one is not so keen on how to schedule their activities, it may get quite frustrating and counterproductive. Strategic planning allows driven women to provide a proper sense of direction to what they’re doing and crafting troubleshooting solutions in case there are unexpected things that will come into play. Some time in one’s life, you will realize that enthusiasm is not enough to carry a situation or event, especially when you have other people in the boat with you. It takes careful considerations and a feasible plan to work things out without feeling short-handed or frustrated when things don’t go as expected. With neuroplasticity, we are taught that our brain is capable of adapting to change regardless of age. That is why it is never too early or late to try and take action in honing yourself to plan better for events and activities, whether small or big.The Driven Woman Facebook GroupThe place to be for like-minded and like-brained women who want an ADHD friendly business and life  (https://facebook.com/diannwingertcoaching) Diann Wingert CoachingIf you’re ready to invest in turbocharging your progress, with expert guidance, support, and accountability from a coach who really gets you and can shave decades off your learning curve  (https://www.diannwingertcoaching.com) Social SharingFacebook:  https://facebook.com/diannwingertcoachingInstagram: https://www.instagram.com/diannwingertcoaching/   LinkedIn:   https://www.linkedin.com/in/diannwingertcoaching/ 
Episode #5 - Driving With The Emergency  Brakes OnMost women with ADHD operate with a fast-moving brain that is difficult to stop. However, since women are more relationship-oriented and tend to follow rules more effectively, they tend to be able to suppress their hyperactivity with an effective and more controlled response to certain situations. This is what I call driving with emergency brakes on.Sooner or later, this suppression can manifest in the form of anxiety, depression, chronic headaches, and various types of obsessive mannerisms and thinking.  This in turn may become problematic and further hinder women to function as they should, without limiting their potential...I believe that the key for women with ADHD to fully realize their gifts is to own to their sense of self and skip normality.  It may help to embrace this by choosing a field or career that maximizes our need for fast pace and high energy.  One can work in a single field or have multiple careers for as long as the activities align with one’s vivacity and principles.  One can also make changes within their environment that will fit their personality and needs.It’s never too late (or too early) to realize that it's time to release the emergency brake and fully live to your true potential.Referred to in this episode:Edward Hallowell’s “Delivered from Distraction: Getting the Most out of Life with Attention Deficit Disorder” This episode is brought to you by:The Driven Woman Facebook GroupThe place to be for like-minded and like-brained women who want an ADHD friendly business and life  (https://facebook.com/diannwingertcoaching) Diann Wingert CoachingIf you’re ready to invest in turbocharging your progress, with expert guidance, support, and accountability from a coach who really gets you and can shave decades off your learning curve  (https://www.diannwingertcoaching.com) Social SharingFacebook:  https://facebook.com/diannwingertcoachingInstagram: https://www.instagram.com/diannwingertcoaching/   LinkedIn:   https://www.linkedin.com/in/diannwingertcoaching/ 
A growing number of people, especially women, are opting for the unstable, insecure, risky, and exciting path of working for themselves, either in partnership, collaboration with others, or flying solo. And most of them would choose to do it again, even if they aren't experiencing the level of success they set out for.Choosing the self-employment path typically means financial instability and insecurity, social and emotional isolation, added stress and pressure on romantic/intimate relationships, and increased challenges with mental health, but certain personal attributes may contribute to both choosing the entrepreneurial path and being successful as an entrepreneur.  I don't believe there is one type of person who is destined to be an entrepreneur, nor do I believe that all entrepreneurs are alike. There are many different paths to entrepreneurship and many different personalities that succeed in this lifestyle. But what I do believe is that there are several personality attributes or characteristics that make it more likely that a person will choose to be an entrepreneur sooner or later and in this episode, I share them with you. Referred to in this episode:Seth Godin’s Blog:  “A Job Without a Boss: Are you a freelancer or an entrepreneur?”https://seths.blog/2019/04/a-job-without-a-boss-2/Entrepreneur: Those with ADHD Might Make Better Entrepreneurs.

In this episode, Diann talks about how most people think that their brain works on their behalf, helping them to achieve their personal happiness, but little do people know the hard truth that it really doesn’t operate this way, but rather the other way around. It is true that our brain can be likened to a computer with regard to how it operates, but unlike a computer, our brain never gets an upgrade, updates, or even extra storage so thoughts we adopted as children continue to drive our thinking in spite of years of life experience.  The brain is focused on the prime directive of your survival instead of your continued growth and learning,.  As a result, the brain is resistant to change, that is why it takes much of a person’s will and effort to change the way we think.  The good news is that you can do something about it and that’s what we’ll discuss in this episode. This episode is brought to you by:The Driven Woman Facebook GroupThe place to be for like-minded and like-brained women who want an ADHD friendly business and life  (https://facebook.com/diannwingertcoaching) Diann Wingert CoachingIf you’re ready to invest in turbocharging your progress, with expert guidance, support, and accountability from a coach who really gets you and can shave decades off your learning curve  (https://www.diannwingertcoaching.com) Social SharingFacebook:  https://facebook.com/diannwingertcoachingInstagram: https://www.instagram.com/diannwingertcoaching/   LinkedIn:   https://www.linkedin.com/in/diannwingertcoaching/ 
One of the things that is the most frustrating to a woman with ADHD is that she usually can’t produce her brilliance on demand.  Try as she might, her creative, innovative, intuitive, out of the box abilities aren’t available to her at all times, like an ATM machine she can always make a withdrawal from.  Sometimes she appears to be an absolute genius at work at life, and other times she feels like a hot mess loser. This can result in a pretty nasty case of Imposter Complex, which is not an actual psychological disorder, but a pretty common cause that holds many bold, brilliant, badass women back from achieving their full potential. In this episode, Diann talks about Imposter Complex and why women with ADHD are particularly prone to experiencing it. Imposter Complex is the term used to explain why gifted women tend to dismiss their success as being the result of luck, being in the right place at the right time, or even diversity policies, rather than grit, determination, and brilliance.  We might believe that we are being held back by others, but we often accept less than we want and deserve because of our own self-doubts and insecurities.Diann also refers to the importance of living in your Zone of Genius, another important concept from the popular book, The Big Leap by author Gay Hendricks and how doing so is one of the most significant changes we can make to start creating an ADHD friendly business and lifestyle. Mentioned in this episode: Imposter Complex (link to Tanya Geisler’s TED-x talk) https://youtu.be/J3Em-IIAQ6IThe Big Leap by Gay Hendricks ( link to Amazon.com listing) https://www.amazon.com/Big-Leap-Conquer-Hidden-Level/dp/0061735361This episode is brought to you by:The Driven Woman Facebook GroupThe place to be for like-minded and like-brained women who want an ADHD friendly business and life  (https://facebook.com/diannwingertcoaching) Diann Wingert CoachingIf you’re ready to invest in turbocharging your progress, with expert guidance, support, and accountability from a coach who really gets you and can shave decades off your learning curve  (https://www.diannwingertcoaching.com) Social SharingFacebook:  https://facebook.com/diannwingertcoachingInstagram: https://www.instagram.com/diannwingertcoaching/   LinkedIn:   https://www.linkedin.com/in/diannwingertcoaching/ 
If you have an interest-based brain,  the fact that a task, project, or goal is important isn’t always enough to get yourself to do what needs to be done, especially if it happens to be important to someone else, but not to you.  This leads to all kinds of resistance, procrastination, and outright avoidance and this is one of the aspects of being an adult with ADHD that is the most frustrating.  But, what if you understood that your brain works differently and important is not the driver that gets you going?   In this episode,  Diann shares her concept of the Four ADHD Drivers, which she playfully refers to as Fancy, Gritty, Shiny, and Fomo and why you need to figure out how to make the task at hand more like one of them in order to get yourself to take action.   Hey, we don’t always get to do only the things that we are really interested in, but it’s no surprise that those who are able to create a life based on their interests are able to leverage their ADHD gifts in the most powerful way.  Think Michelle Rodriguez ( acclaimed actress), Simone Biles ( Olympic gymnast) and Lisa Ling (award-winning journalist ) who have created highly successful careers around their interests, because of, not in spite of their ADHD.

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.Is it possible to absolutely not care about other people's opinions or what others are doing? I don’t think so. I don't think it's realistic to expect ourselves to have no amount of reactivity when our behavior triggers a reaction in someone that we perceive as judgment or criticism. What should we do when we feel rejected or hurt by the opinion of others?Are you loving The Driven Woman Podcast, listening regularly, maybe even a subscriber who eagerly waits for Tuesday when the next episode is released?

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.) Since this is our first guest expert interview, I wanted it to be special and deliver value.  I connected with sleep psychologist Yishan Xu, Ph.D., a Stanford-trained expert in behavioral sleep psychology,  host of two podcasts, Deep Into Sleep and  Ask Yishan,  a Mandarin language podcast. Dr. Xu also hosts a YouTube channel.  And, if that wasn’t enough, she’s a successful entrepreneur with a group practice in California that has more than 10 clinicians.In this interview, we will be talking about how sleep is essential for entrepreneurs, how to get quality sleep, and the do’s and dont’s of sleeping (among others).  Yishan and I will cover the following:Why she became a behavioral sleep specialist and sleep problems she treatsHabits of adults with ADHD that contribute to sleep deficits The statistics on sleep and mental clarity  (they're scary) Why you should stop hitting the snooze button The connection between sleep and weight Caffeine and energy  (this one blew my mind!)The science and culture of napping  -Yishan & Diann share their personal beliefs and napping habits Recommendations: Yishan talked about and uses Phillips Hue smart lighting in her home:https://www.philips-hue.com/en-usAre you loving The Driven Woman Podcast, listening regularly, maybe even a subscriber who eagerly waits for Tuesday when the next episode is released?

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 running their own business, learned it through experience. If you are thinking about becoming an entrepreneur, I will offer you my shortlist of the mindsets that you should make an effort to LEARN & those you need to UNLEARN in order to succeed as an entrepreneur.If you are currently struggling in running your business, want to start your very first entrepreneurial journey, or simply want to better understand the traits of a successful entrepreneur, this episode is for you. And remember, it’s never too late to start your own business - I didn’t until I was in my 50s! Are you loving The Driven Woman Podcast, listening regularly, maybe even a subscriber who eagerly waits for Tuesday when the next episode is released?

Most women struggle to meet expectations and find it difficult to believe that they are enough. Our culture conditions us to be thoughtful, caring, considerate, and nurturing, and always put others needs and wishes ahead of our own. After years of being who everyone else needs them to be, many women feel lost and don’t even know what they really want.  Once they reach their 40s or 50s, many women face the question “What am I going to do with the rest of my life?” Most of them have never really felt comfortable putting their own goals first. Of all the criticisms a woman might fear, being thought of as selfish may be the most terrorizing of all. So, what happens when we find ourselves at a point in life when we actually have the opportunity to think about ourselves?
