    Signs it's time to call BS on your five year plan!

    Ever feel like your brain is lying to you about your future possibilities and capabilities? Well, maybe it's time to call BS on that five-year plan and consider taking your side hustle full time!

    Throughout this episode, we'll cover real-life examples, financial benchmarks, and essential mindsets that will help you make that big leap.
    For instance, did you know that if you're making between 50% to 70% of your full-time job salary through your side hustle, it might be a sign you're ready to go full time?
    I'll also share stories about my clients like Lauren Lefkowitz, who initially planned for a five-year transition but found herself leaving her full-time job in just five months.

    All these insights will empower you to make well-informed, confident decisions about your business's future.

    Throughout the episode, I break down the essentials of a successful LinkedIn presence, starting with the understanding around the types of posts you should avoid, and a crucial tip for maintaining your posts’ visibility.
    I also emphasize the importance of making your content accessible and engaging, ensuring it’s easy on the eyes and appealing to those skimming during their busy days.

    So get ready to enjoy numerous actionable strategies: from enhancing your profile to function as an alluring landing page, to engaging genuinely in conversations without immediately diving into sales talk.

    How ADHD entrepreneurs can find more energy

    How ADHD entrepreneurs can find more energy

    From Squirrel to Success: Energy Management Tips for the ADHD EntrepreneurAre you sick of finding your meat suit's running on empty before midday? I'm going to talk you through how ADHD entrepreneurs can find more energy!
    Hey, I'm Katie McManus, business strategist and money mindset coach, and this is my podcast "The Weeniecast!"
    In episode 79, I'm diving into something that might sound a bit routine, but trust me, it's the lifeblood of our productivity as an ADHD entrepreneur: energy management.
    Now, hold on—before you let out an exasperated sigh—this episode isn't about the mundane.
    We're not chasing after shiny productivity hacks.
    Instead, we're slowing down to speed up.
    You heard me.
    It sounds counterintuitive, I know, but that's the magic I'm unpacking today.
    Personal anecdotes and practical experiments have shown me that some of the simplest changes in our daily habits can have the most profound impacts when it comes to firing up that creative brain of ours and leading a business that's as healthy as we are.
    I've always pushed back against the term ‘self-care,’ and in this conversation, I'm inviting you to do the same.
    Instead, I'm presenting it as an essential part of our energy toolkit.
    From my own experiences, I tell you how taking a moment to walk my dog, Luna, without multitasking, can clear my mind and spark those bright ideas that lead to immense productivity later on.
    I dig into why that is and how we can make it a habit.
    And I'm not just talking about enjoying the breezy outdoors—I'm getting into the science of it all: why our ADHD brains function the way they do, and how we can leverage that knowledge for our benefit.
    From eating a breakfast that balances protein and carbs to sharing the surprising benefits of a good workout or meditative moment, I'm outlining the building blocks for sustainable energy levels that translate to business success.
    But what you'll really take away post-listen is not just a bunch of knowledge nuggets—you'll be empowered to make these energy tools work for your entrepreneurial life.
    I promise, you'll see how the mundane can be extraordinary.
    We talk about how to turn your dog walk into a powerhouse for business planning and how to let a workout beat the stress out of your system so your creativity can kick back in.
    And it's not just about the to-dos and lists; I'm giving you permission to pace yourself for premium output.
    It might even lead you to fall back in love with the work that you do, and that's a beautiful thing.
    We're flipping the script here, moving from frenzied to focused, so that when you do sit down to work, you're coming at it with all cylinders firing—your mind is sharp, calm, and oh-so-ready!
    Timestamped Summary:00:00 Prioritize daily habits for increased energy.
    03:46 Prioritizing, clearing mind, and alleviating stress outdoors.
    08:04 Fear blocks creativity, prioritize wellness for productivity.
    11:50 Exercise helps focus, no gym required.
    14:22 Guided meditation trains the nervous system safely.
    19:02 Slow down, prioritize wellness, increase creativity, productivity.

TraneTrax ,

Helpful advice with a unique angle!

What a great show that leans into ADHD tendencies but honestly is helpful to anyone! I enjoyed the episode about social media. Katie is a master at telling stories and using analogies too and shared a metaphor-based process to creating content. She has a dry sense of humor that I appreciate. Give this one a listen!

Eyelash Extensions by Kris ,

Awesome!

I really enjoyed this podcast. I am an adhd business owner and I was surprised at how much I could relate to the different challenges and obstacles Katie was describing.

To learn that other business owners struggle with similar daily setbacks honestly makes me feel better because now I know I’m not the only one struggling with these things and in many of the episodes she offers nuggets of knowledge and things she has done to overcome these obstacles, which I am finding useful and helpful in my journey to success.

mamabee19 ,

Not quite there

I was looking for a helpful adhd entrepreneur podcast, and while there’s some helpful nuggets, I don’t feel like this podcast is it. The sound effects are just distracting and takes away from any info actually being shared and while these episodes are short, the advice or helpful tips aren’t shared until nearly the very end.
