This episode is the recording of March’s live Q&A. The questions answered in this episode were submitted by listeners of this podcast, both ahead of time and live. I am, once again, joined on this episode by Brendan Mahan. In this episode, you will hear Brenden and I answer several listener questions on medication, managing emotions at the end of the day, procrastination, cell phone notifications, and much more.
Joining me on this episode are Jessica McCabe and Edward Newton. Jessica is the creator of the extremely popular and successful How To ADHD YouTube Channel. She recently did a Ted Talk that has over 10 million views! Edward has a background in television production and has played a large role in the success of How To ADHD. On this episode, you will hear Jessica and Edward talk about how How To ADHD has grown since they were last on the podcast. They also share the backstory behind her Ted Talk, including how the talk was put together and executed. Jessica has also organized a grassroots campaign in response to the Netflix documentary, “Take Your Pills.” We discuss why this film isn’t accurate and does a disservice to those who would benefit from ADHD medication.
This episode is the recording of February’s live Q&A. I am, once again, joined on this episode by Brendan Mahan. In this conversation, you will hear several listener questions. This month, a lot of these conversations involved medication. We also talk about employment and recovering from a loss of employment.
I really want to share a conversation with Marisol Salizar. Marisol is one of the members of our Coaching and Accountability Group, and I think when it comes to finding what really matters in life, the progress that she has made can be inspirational for all of us, especially when we are fortunate enough to love the work that we do.
Jamie Popernack is a recovering achievement addict living a fiercely simple life with her husband and daughter. Jamie is a public health educator who works at a crisis program. In this conversation, you will hear Jamie explain the idea of achievement addictions. She shares how she fell into that trap. She was hustling for her self-worth and doing things because she had to and it looked good. Her motivation was no longer to help people, but to make herself feel good. One of the ways Jamie combats this achievement addiction is living what she calls a “fiercely simple life.” Jamie also tells about her career, working suicide prevention. She shares some insight into this year. She says, “You can’t prevent suicide without talking about it.”
Kwame Dougan is an attorney by training, an investor by experience, and an advisor by design. He earned his Juris Doctor from Columbia University and a Master of Science from London School of Economics, attending as a rotary ambassadorial scholar. In this conversation, you will hear Kwame describe his background as a refugee from Ghana who grew up in Canada. Kwame is intentional and thoughtful and I think you’ll enjoy this conversation.
Logan Nelson joins me on this episode of the podcast. Logan is the creator of Scratch Your Own Itch Podcast, where he inspires and motivates listeners to scratch your own itch so that you can grow personally and professionally. In this conversation, you will hear Logan explain his why. Logan opens up about body dysmorphia, the fear of failure, and a suicide attempt. After that suicide attempt. Logan spent seven days in isolation, and those experiences have led Logan to the work that he’s doing now.
This episode is the recording of January’s live Q&A. I am joined on this episode by Brendan Mahan. We cover several different topics on this episode, including questions on prioritization systems, money management, “The Wall of Awful,” and much more.
