259: Mastermind – Preventing Burnout

259: Mastermind – Preventing Burnout

This episode is another mastermind group session!  This conversation is with ADHD reWired Addmin, who help with our coaching group.  This week, Juliet sits in the hot seat. Also in the mastermind call are Kat, Dave, Katie, and Roxy.

In this conversation, you will hear Juliet describe her situation and challenges.  Juliet feels that situations in her life go in circles. She’d like to change her outcomes by doing things differently instead of doing them the same ways, expecting different results.  Throughout this conversation, you will hear the other members of the group and me ask her questions, share our own experiences, and provide some action-items to help her get past these things that seem to be holding her back.  

You’ll Learn:

  • [02:05] – Juliet shares that she keeps going in circles with everything.  She provides a few examples of this happening in her life. This is what she’d like to mastermind.

  • [06:02] –  Working on this area of her life is important to Juliet.
  • [07:22] – Juliet is not sure how other people view her.  She feels this comes from her personality being extreme on both ends.
