EP. 203: Changing the Definition of Success with TedX Speaker Martha Barnard-Rae ADHD for Smart Ass Women with Tracy Otsuka

    • Alternative Health

When Martha Barnard-Rae was finally diagnosed with ADHD after years of being told it was just anxiety, she started structuring her home and work life around her brain’s unique needs and saw a complete transformation in how she lives and speaks to herself. Since getting her diagnosis, Martha has gone on to give an inspiring TedX talk about ADHD and start her own copywriting business, Word Candy, where she has the freedom to let her ADHD strengths shine. 
 
“I want people to understand that ADHD is a part of me and I can use these powers such as they are for good. And I think the more that I can kind of say about it, the more people will understand and they can go, ‘oh, I want to work with her because she does those hyperfocus weeks because she can work in that way.’ That's a feature, not a bug.” 
 
Join us this episode as Martha shares all the ways she’s redefining success for herself, her vulerable experience on the TedX stage, how she fills her “bowl of resilience,” and so much more.
