S3 Ep9: Achieving Productivity In The Midst Of Chaos

Kristin Seymour knows firsthand how tough it is to be productive when you have ADHD. Not only does she have ADHD, but Kristin is the mom of two ADHD teens, and she’s also an ADHD specialist. The advanced practice nurse returns to Distraction to share more of her “life hacks” along with some special advice for parents of ADHD kids. As Ned puts it, “Kristin has the knack, the understanding and natural empathy of one who has been there, of one who really burns to make sure others do not suffer the way she did.”

S3 Ep6: Use Your Conative Style To Find The Right Job

Kathy Kolbe is the world’s leading authority on human instincts. She solved the riddle of how all people can be both equal and different in their creative efforts by identifying the nature of universal instincts that constitute individual modus operandi. Her groundbreaking work has enabled thousands to find careers that they not only love, but excel at as well.

Kolbe has been called Maslow’s successor because of her work in showing how the three parts of the mind (cognitive, affective and conative) impact the creative problem solving process. She is a prolific writer and bestselling author, and is currently the CEO and Chief Creative Officer of Kolbe Corp, a publishing and consulting company she started over 35 years ago.

S3 Mini4: ADHDer Creates A DropZone For Veterans

S3 Mini4: ADHDer Creates A DropZone For Veterans

Courtney Wilson didn’t follow a typical path to the military. After completing her undergrad studies as a creative writing major at Wellesley College, she joined the army and became an engineer. After serving for seven years, she left as a Captain and soon began working on her foundation, DropZone For Veterans, while going to school to get her MBA. Wilson’s organization connects veterans and their families with curated resources so they can thrive, not just survive, after the military. Through a lot of hard work, she and her team have created a database of over 116,000 benefits, resources and opportunities; and have served over 10,000 veterans so far.
