Navigating ADHD and executive dysfunction in business
In this episode, I'll be discussing how I'm bouncing back from a disastrous launch due to my ADHD. I'll share how my executive dysfunction and overcomplicated plan contributed to my own failure. I'll explain how I dealt with the situation, kept my audience informed, admitting my mistakes and received supportive emails. And how despite my initial fear of being seen as a failure, I embrace my ADHD and share how I'm using it to recover and relaunch.

I experienced massive amounts of rejection sensitivity dysphoria after admitting to a mistake in my business program launch. I was convinced that people would see me as a failure, even though my audience would never do that. I know this. But RSD was fired up and raw.
This sensitivity to rejection caused me to feel activated and anxious about admitting that I did something wrong. However, I was determined to bounce back from this setback and recover from it.
If you haven’t yet listened to my previous episode, go do that first.
This one will make more sense if you do.
After recording that episode, I took a week off to rest and recharge because I was exhausted and a little burned out. I realized that when I was tired and lacking creativity, it was difficult for me to come up with a strategy and plan for promoting my program.
This episode tells the story of how I managed to center and regroup.

The overall response from my audience was supportive.
I mean, I don’t know why I’m surprised at that – I shouldn’t be.
More and more people responded positively to my admitting my mistakes and correcting them.

This story is NOT for Kim kardashian's ears
Hey listen, it's been very healing sharing this story with you my delightful weenie listeners. But I wouldn't be sharing it with Kim Kardashian. You'll learn why if you listen to the episode.
I also mention why I think Amy Schumer is a badass when it comes to this perfectly imperfect stuff. Oh, and talking about badasses... love you, Jen Sincero.
