Donna Barre has worked for years as a “data geek”. She is now re-inventing herself to help others with ADHD find meaning, joy, and the pursuit of their creative endeavors. Donna was also a member of the very first ADHD reWired Coaching and Accountability Group.
Donna is doing something unique, she’s bringing arts and crafts into the world of ADHD. In this conversation, Donna talks about the importance of play and creativity and their role in productivity. She explains what art does for her and how activities like art can help in various areas of life.
In the ADHD reWired Hot Seat portion of our discussion, we work with Donna on her issues with confidence and bravery. She shares some areas in which she feels like her bravery and confidence are lacking. We work through some practical ways to build confidence and bravery. We also learn what a brave Donna looks like. In this discussion, I share this resource: http://www.classtools.net/random-name-picker/
