When I first started this podcast I had so many creative ideas and big ambitions for how to connect with other ADHD women, but actually executing my ideas consistently was a whole different story. Even though I was drowning on my own, I couldn’t imagine hiring someone to help me with the tasks I was struggling with. What if their work wasn’t up to …
 
ADHD and trauma overlap quite a bit in how they affect the brain, so much so that clinicians often misdiagnose one for the other. So how do clinicians distinguish between ADHD and trauma when both impact the same areas of the brain and can cause similar symptoms? And moreover, what happens when ADHD and trauma co-occur, which they so often do, due …

When ADHDers are faced with a problem, we often try to either go around it or develop new strategies to get better at it. My guest this episode, author and money mentor Denise Duffield-Thomas, has mastered the art of stepping back from the problem and determining whether she can eliminate it altogether, which is the foundation of her “keyless life”…
 
It isn’t a stretch to say that imposter syndrome likely takes up space in most ADHD brains (and how could it not when we’re constantly feeling like we aren’t reaching our potential?), but there’s an extra layer of self-doubt that comes with the vulnerability of putting yourself out into the world creatively. Artist and entrepreneur Katie Hayes alwa…
 
Parenting activist and author Debbie Reber had a difficult time with the structure of school growing up, so when her son Asher also started struggling to have his unique learning needs supported in the classroom, she knew she had to do things differently. Incorporating expert advice and a strengths-based philosophy, Debbie started creating the reso…
 
Talk therapy can be a valuable resource, but what happens when you’re all talked out and still feel your body is holding onto trauma? This is where teacher’s assistant Lara Connolly found herself after years of trying talk therapy and never feeling like it was quite enough to help alleviate her physical exhaustion and stress. It wasn’t until she tr…

So often people tell me that they would love to hire a virtual assistant, but they are afraid they won't have enough work for them to do. They dread the thought of having to stay on top of creating new work for the VA. This episode shows you how recurring tasks lists erases this problem! Take a listen and tell me what you think!…
 
Our ADHD brains are driven by interest, not importance, meaning that boring tasks can feel almost physically painful to us. On the flipside, when we find something that sparks our interest, we have the power to become unstoppable forces. Pastry chef and food blogger, Rebecca Eisenberg, felt this spark with cooking and baking, and, to even her own s…
 
In this episode, I talk about the mindset we all need to adopt in order to succeed with a virtual team. Specifically: ✔ Why letting go is important for you to become the visionary and leader of your team ✔ Why you should look at hiring a virtual assistant as an investment rather than as an expense ✔ Why you need to trust your VA rather than being f…
 
So often I hear from people who have hired virtual assistants in the past and have been unsuccessful…they are really frustrated. And honestly, I think that 90% of the time it's because of a failure to communicate expectations. The good news is that there are very simple and effective ways to set clear (and reasonable) expectations! In this short ep…
 
I always say that ADHD has the potential to be our greatest superpower if we can learn how to harness it, and my guest this episode, recording artist Devyne Bean, is the living embodiment of that. At a young age, Devyne figured out that if she could channel her hyperactivity and add structure to her days, her entrepreneurial spirit and strong work …
 
Curiosity is one of our most powerful ADHD strengths, but it can also be one of our greatest hindrances if the people around us see our curiosity as a challenge to authority, rather than a genuine interest in understanding the world. When my guest, Siw Slevigen, was growing up she always had her strong curiosity met with either excitement or disdai…
 
Last week we talked about how you could go on vacation for a month if you have a VA, and what you can actually expect of them to not only keep your business running, but how to make sure it thrives. Today, I want to talk to you about the thriving part, because a lot of people don't realize that beyond the built-in ROI or return on investment of hav…
 
ADHD and politics has been at the top of my ‘topics I want to cover’ list for quite some time now, but given the extreme political division within the United States and around the world, I wanted to wait until I had something to share that could possibly make things better and wouldn’t add more fuel to the fire. Well, I recently read the book The M…
 
Can you leave for vacation knowing that your business is fine without you? Well, yes! I just finished a one-month European tour and it was amazing - it was a true vacation! Meaning, I left my laptop at home. I was able to do this because my team kept the business running without me. If you are ready to ditch the laptop and hit the highway, but are …
 
Last episode I did a solo overview of imposter syndrome to lay the foundation for my wonderful conversation with my guest this episode, Danielle House. Danielle is a shining example of how imposter syndrome can weasel its way into the lives of even the most accomplished ADHD women. At 30 she became the CEO of a medical device company, yet, up until…
 
Every day I meet amazingly brilliant ADHD women who cannot see their own brilliance. These women may have an impressive list of accomplishments, but because they struggle to keep up with the behind-the-scenes tasks that society tells us are a measurement of our value, all they can focus on are those struggles. In this episode, I’m covering the basi…
 
If you got a puppy during the COVID lockdown like I did, you’ve probably seen some weird and frustrating social behaviors and anxieties crop up as a result of missing out on crucial socialization time. Between the nightmarish vet appointments and the anxiety-fueled barking, my dog is driving me bonkers and I’ve been at a loss for what to do about i…
 
We ADHDers are often unfairly labeled as “flaky” in the workplace, but in my experience, if you find the right ADHD person who’s motivated by an interest and investment in the work, there is truly no one better for the job. I believe I’ve found the cream of the ADHD crop in my podcast producer, Grace Bourey, who has reorganized everything for me an…
 
Of all my ADHD gifts, interpersonal intuition is the one that I consider my ultimate superpower. I’ve always had this ability to walk into a room and know what’s going on without hearing one word, it’s like I can read the energy of everyone around me and determine who’s happy, who’s pretending to be happy, who’s struggling, who cares about others a…
 
At this point in the podcast I’ve covered just about every ADHD topic under the sun, but one area I’ve always tiptoed around has been sexuality and ADHD; I’ve never been quite sure how to approach it, or whether my listeners even wanted to hear me talk about it for that matter! Luckily, sex educator, journalist, author, and podcaster, August McLaug…

ADHD women have heard every excuse under the sun for why their doctors won’t consider an ADHD diagnosis or take their concerns seriously; everything from the classic “it’s just anxiety,” to “you’re too smart to have ADHD,” to even “you just think it’s cool to have ADHD and that’s why you want a diagnosis.” Seriously, what the hell?! Being gaslit, m…
 
There’s nothing quite like the ‘aha’ moment of realizing you have ADHD after a lifetime of trying to understand yourself, but after the initial shock wears off many of us are left wondering: okay, so what comes next? I’m frequently asked how to go about pursuing a diagnosis and finding a team of medical and mental health professionals who actually …
 
I always love talking with ADHD women who are making waves in positions traditionally held by men, so when my guest this episode, Danyell DiLena, mentioned she was kicking ass in not one but two male-dominated fields, I knew I had to have her on to share her story. Danyell’s journey hasn’t been easy–she’s had to deal with sexism both in her career …
 
Those of us with ADHD brains know that no matter how vigilant we are, slip-ups are bound to happen, especially when sleep deprivation is thrown into the mix. We can only do so much to prevent mistakes, but what we can control is how we choose to react to them. This episode I’m joined by ADHD coach and reformed people-pleaser, Leslie Robbins, who to…
 
Since starting this podcast, I’ve been able to help thousands of ADHD women around the world discover their true selves and lean into their strengths. None of this would be possible, however, without the ADHD for Smart Ass Women Facebook group–the place where it all began–and the help of Catheryn Wreford-Holden, our lead Facebook group administrato…
 
Dr. Grace Esan, now a pediatrician in Indiana, grew up in Lagos, Nigeria, where it was the cultural norm to show up to parties and events fashionably late. It wasn’t until she moved to the United States, where time is taken much more seriously, that she realized she had difficulty with time management and procrastination that extended beyond cultur…
 
Many people who know me would describe me as a tough critic–just ask my kids–but I like to think of it as valuing excellence. This means that when I do recommend a product or service, it’s only because I believe in it so much that I want to shout it from the rooftops. In this episode, I’m sharing my list of rooftop-worthy ADHD hacks that have compl…
 
As a dentist’s daughter, I have to admit I was always spoiled when it came to my dental health. That is, until a terrible root canal (is there any other kind?) made me realize I had to start taking my dental health more seriously, even if that involved wearing the dreaded night guard I had cast aside many years before. It also got me thinking: ‘Wai…
 
As Smart Ass women, we know ADHD varies wildly in how it presents compared to the stereotypes, but what do we do when the rest of the world hasn’t caught up? After a lifetime of having our symptoms dismissed by teachers, parents, and even medical professionals, it can feel terrifying and futile to pursue a diagnosis. My guest this episode, April Ka…

I always say our best purposes give meaning to our past, and my guest this episode, Dr. Abbey Weinstein, proves just how true this is. Abbey struggled with school for most of her life, so she surprised even herself when she not only turned it around and started getting straight A’s in college, but went on to get her Master’s degree and P.h.D. in Sp…
 
Dating has changed quite a bit since I was last single–for one, dating apps have replaced personal ads and handwritten letters–but no matter how you’re approaching it, dating can feel overwhelming and impossible. My guest, Jackie Newman, is passionate about empowering people to face the challenges of the dating world, so she gave herself the challe…
 
In this brand new podcast episode, I chat with Tracy Otsuka, the host of the podcast, ADHD for Smart Ass Women. In this episode, Tracy shares: ✔️ what ADHD is (and isn't) ✔️ why ADHD looks very different in women than it looks in men ✔️ how every person with ADHD has an area of brilliance ✔️ how having an ADHD brain affects entrepreneurship ✔️ stra…
 
ADHD women constantly amaze me with their brilliance and fearlessness, and my guest this episode, atmospheric scientist Natalia Bliankinshtein, is no different. Natalia works in a flight research laboratory in Canada, where she collects data for climate research by flying a ‘flying laboratory’ aircraft directly into storms and treacherous weather–t…
 
Body-Focused Repetitive Behaviors (BFRBs) such as skin picking and nail biting can feel like a bad habit we need to break, but these behaviors go beyond just a habit; it’s actually a complex condition that causes people to repeatedly touch their body in a way that results in physical damage. For years, BFRBs were thought to be a member of the OCD f…
 
I’ve always considered myself an avid reader. I read all the time, but up until recently I rarely finished any of them and had convinced myself that I needed a physical book, which led to an overwhelming amount of half-finished books scattered throughout my house. The clutter was a constant reminder that I wasn’t reading as much as I wanted to, and…

If you’ve been listening to the podcast for any length of time, you know that I’m a huge proponent of using Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), or tapping, to manage and alleviate ADHD symptoms. Kate Moryoussef, a wellbeing/lifestyle coach and EFT practitioner, shares my passion for tapping and helping ADHD women, so I knew I had to invite her onto …
 
Many of our ADHD traits bode well with entrepreneurialism, from our curiosity to our fearlessness. Other aspects of ADHD, however, like perfectionism and something I call “procrastilearning”, combined with outside influences telling us what we “should” be doing, can cause us to get in our own way. Entrepreneur and business coach, Jessi Romero, is h…
 
Reading is everywhere and in everything we do, but most reading curriculums taught in schools aren’t aligned with the current research on the most effective way to teach reading. Kathleen Germs, a second-grade teacher and Instagram educator, is on a mission to change not just the way reading is taught, but the entire dynamic between teachers and st…
 
Hypnosis is often thought of as a sensational magic trick used for controlling minds and embarrassing people on cruise ships, so I admit I was a bit skeptical when I heard about hypnotherapy being used in ADHD management. However, I always try to keep an open mind when it comes to alternative treatments, which is why I wanted to sit down with hypno…
 
ADHDers are often drawn to entrepreneurship, and not only because we have difficulty working for someone else! When we have room to follow our creativity and work within our flow, that’s when our superpowers shine through. My guest today, Jennifer Zahourek, was working as an ER nurse when she discovered that her unique way of learning (due to ADHD …
 
I’m sure you’ve heard me say a million times that our best purposes give meaning to our past, we become incredible teachers when we’re driven by passion and personal connection.
