Episode 196: ADHD and Imposter Syndrome with Author and Sales Expert, Shianne Sampson

There are so many great ADHD podcasts out there that deliver the latest research and feature leading experts, but I think that what makes this podcast so different and valuable are the stories.

Episode 192: ADHD and Imposter Syndrome with Artist and Entrepreneur, Katie Hayes

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 always felt drawn to art growing up and knew she had a great talent for it, but she never considered that she was good enough to turn her art into a full-time creative career.

Episode 187: ADHD and How to Feel Good and Inspire with Teen Recording Artist, Devyne Bean

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.

Episode 184: ADHD and Overcoming Imposter Syndrome with Danielle House

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 recently, she held the belief that her success was due to luck, a mistake–anything but her own intelligence and ability.

Episode 183: Why ADHD Women Might Struggle More with Imposter Syndrome

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.
