Back by Popular Demand! Q&A with Dr. Ari Tuckman: Executive Functions and ADHD

Marcia and I didn’t want to waste any precious time while we were interviewing Dr. Ari Tuckman yesterday. You have never heard us so quiet. But we were on a mission! to ask Dr. T all the questions you had written in.

Usually when we have a special guest, Marcia and I are bursting with questions to ask them. However, we sealed our lips and only asked one question each. Can you imagine how hard that was?! But it was worth it. We asked your questions, Dr. Tuckman answered them. Mission accomplished.

So grab a cup of coffee, sit back, relax, and meet our new friends. You’ll learn critical business information from each of our six interviewees, and don’t worry — yes, there are six videos, but each is around or under five minutes.

Interview with Writer Frank South: From Hollywood to Doing Good

After listening to Frank South, the Hollywood writer and executive producer tell his ADHD story on our Business Brilliance call . . .  all that remains to be said is wow.

Frank had undiagnosed ADHD all through his successful “glamorous” lifestyle, and he walks us through his life, from high school to Hollywood and back again. His natural storytelling ability had Marcia, me, and our listeners captivated. We felt like we were on the roller coaster of life in the fast creative lane, right there with Frank.

As much as Frank’s life was exciting, it was also painful. Listening to him, we realize that money and fame might buy impressive cars, outfits, and a nice lifestyle for him and his family, but if something emotional is out of sync, none of that matters. With the support of his wife and children, he made some brave changes, and now he “works” his ADHD as a writer for ADDitudes Magazine and independent playwright.

Franks shares his  secrets to living a successful life with ADHD so that you can too!

Interview with Dr. Joe Flanders: How Mindfulness Meditation Can Help the ADHD Mind

Ever since I became an ADHD coach, I have been on a constant quest to find ways to make meditation easier for adults with ADHD. If you are scratching your head and wondering why, its because meditation does wonders to minimize the negative effects of ADHD.

AND when that happens, you feel happier, in control of your life, your emotions, and your business. Plus the gifts of ADHD can shine brightly.

After today’s call, that quest might have come to an end. Marcia and I interviewed Dr. Joe Flanders, who teaches Mindfulness Meditation.

Interview with ADHD expert Terry Matlen: the Challenges of the ADHD Woman Entrepreneur

Terry Matlen gave us a powerful interview today, with so much amazing information about how ADHD affects women. We had a great discussion about how all of this relates to your life and your work — you’ll want to listen to the recording more than once, we’re sure of it.

Terry told her own story, about how her search to help her daughter led to her own ADD diagnosis, and how that turned into an online business that helps many women from all over the world.

It was fascinating to hear the unique differences between how ADHD shows up in women and girls, including the internalization and disconnectedness that’s often misdiagnosed.
