Today, I am pleased to announce we are kicking off the Overcoming ADDversity series -a six-part series called Manage Her Brain, Grow Her Business with Dr. Dennis Maness.
Overcoming ADDversity is something I believe I was destined to do, but more importantly what you were destined to do.
You see, it’s my belief that SO MANY women solo entrepreneurs suffer from adult ADD and have NO idea how deeply it is affecting their ability to manage their brain and business in a way that will allow the brain to be still, and the business to flourish and grow into a sustainable source of income and wealth for their family, for future generations to come.
Instead, we go about daily, scattered, unfocused and feeling like we’re on the Hamster Wheel of Life. Because in addition to running a business, we’re running a life: we’re mothers, wives, girlfriends, sisters, sister-friends, daughters, and elder caregivers.
Dr. Dennis is a Neuroscientist, and Founder of BrainTek Institute in San Diego. He is the creator of the Behavioral Relationship Entrainment Program (BRE for short). Every area of your brain has a job description. BRE uses a proprietary assessment of seven areas of the brain to select the right Protocol for YOUR brain, to help it get back to the way it was designed when you got here.
This series is designed to focus specifically on women solo entrepreneurs with Adult ADD, what it is, how to know if YOU have it, and what to do to Overcome it.
REALLY listen to this series as if your life and business depends on it…because it DOES!
Yes, his last name is Risk, and September is National Emergency Preparedness Month.
According to a national workplace safety survey by Staples, only half of employees believe their workplaces are prepared for a severe emergency and nearly two-thirds of those polled said recent natural disasters have not led to their employers reassessing company safety plans.
Today, Staples’ Safety Expert Bob Risk drops in to discuss how local San Diego consumers and businesses can get back-to-safety and prepare for the unexpected.
Bob says people would be surprised to find out how many stores and even restaurants lack the most basic supplies for first aid!
And he’s going to share with us 5 overlooked products that should be included as part of an emergency preparedness kit.
Bob is the senior strategic safety health and wellness manager for Staples. His experience includes working with some of the largest corporations in the world to help them with emergency response efforts and environmental clean-ups of some of the worst disasters in the last decade, including Hurricane Katrina and the Gulf Coast Oil spill.
I recently had a great conversation with Libby Gill in the Business Salon about her new book, “Capture the Mindshare and the Market Share Will Follow: The Art and Science of Building Brands”.
Among her other great books, she is also an internationally recognized executive coach and branding expert with over 20 years of industry experience. Libby has worked with some of the best in the business including ABC-Disney, Nike, PayPal, and Warner Brothers just to name a few.
FYI, Libby also launched Dr. Phil, which was no easy feat.

A financial expert, Pamela is the author of the groundbreaking book Bank on Yourself:The Life Changing Secret fo Growing and Protecting Your Financial Future – which reveals the secrets to taking back control of your financial future that Wall Street, banks, and credit card companies DON’T want you to know.
She investigated more than 450 savings and retirement planning strategies seeking an alternative to the risk and volatility of stocks and other investments. Her research led her to a time-tested, predictable method of growing and protecting wealth now used by more than half a million people.
This was a fascinating conversation as we explored the following questions and more:
- WHAT is a Bank On Yourself Plan?
- Has it REALLY been around for 160 years?
- Your advice is radically different from both Dave Ramsey and Suze Orman – what are the key differences?
- How can a woman entrepreneur use Bank On Yourself as a financing vehicle for their business, even when no banker will loan her a dime?
- How can women entrepreneurs use Bank On Yourself to not retire broke?
- Is it too late to start a Bank On Yourself Plan, if you are a woman entrepreneur over 50?
- Walt Disney and JC Penney both used this type of plan to finance their businesses?
Pamela’s new book: Bank On Yourself Revolution: Fire Your Banker, Bypass Wall Street, and Take Control of Your Own Financial Future. (And by the way, THIS ‘Revolution’ WILL be televised ;-))
Ladies, you really have to listen to this one. It’s MIND-BLOWING what we don’t know about this potential business financing vehicle.
