258: Mastermind – Asking for Help and Making Decisions

This episode is another mastermind group session.  This conversation is with ADHD reWired alumni from our 14th season.  This week, Katie returns to the podcast and is in the hot seat. We are joined by Kat, Roxy, Juliet, and Carrie.  

In this conversation, you will hear Katie describe her situation.  She would like to find her passion and potentially make a career out of it.  Katie enjoys creating content, specifically on YouTube. By the end of the conversation, Katie has an idea of what she wants to do, and she will have a timeline for herself to accomplish this goal.
