223: Organize This with Nathalie Pedicelli

This Week’s Episode:

Nathalie Pedicelli joins me on the podcast this week.  Nathalie is a professional organizer and an ADHD organizer coach-in-training.  She wants to live in a world where people with ADHD are recognized as geniuses, where asking questions and challenging the status quo is a good thing.  With over 25 years of organizing people, events, and places, she is a speaker on how organization helps people with ADHD live a less chaotic and more productive life.

On this episode, Nathalie will share her knowledge and experience in the area of organization.  She shares her history of organizing, and in our conversation, we tackle many areas of life where organization can be a real struggle.  In this conversation, Nathalie gives us all practical tips to implement to become more organized.
