Episode 36 - No Labels, No Limits - with Melissa Hood, Conquering ADHD

Season 1, Ep. 36

Have you crossed paths in life with someone with ADHD? Or perhaps there is someone in your family or circle of friends challenged by it? Our guest today, Melissa (Missy) Hood, gives us great insights on dealing with the disorder, tips to succeed and ways to understand others who struggle with the disorder. Her book, "Memoirs of an ADHD Mind", explores her diagnosis of ADHD and Dyslexia and how she found ways to manage and make her disadvantages work for her. 

"I've always been an out of the box thinker, but for analyzing and higher critical thinking, I think ADHD people become really codependent upon people doing things for them. My job forced me to do things myself. It forced me to learn myself and that was the best lesson anybody could have ever pushed me into."

"Think about this. When we gain weight, it takes us a while to put it on. It's going to take us a while to get it off. When we get hurt through trauma, it took us awhile to have those layers put on, so it takes us awhile to walk it out and get them it's a layered system and so you peel the layers off by being gracious to yourself."

We call them ordinary because we haven't heard about them in the media.

Episode 64 - No Labels, No Limits podcast - with Joe Pettit, Professional Speaker and Nutrition Expert

Season 1, Ep. 64
It’s our honor today to interview Joe Pettit, a Professional Speaker, and a Nutrition Services Expert. He is quickly becoming one of the hottest speakers on resilience, producing results by strengthening your personal development, and leadership. He has an uncanny ability to engage, connect, and inspire audiences. He presents at state and national conferences, nonprofits, and schools. A blogger, entrepreneur, and motivation addict – he’s got an incredibly interesting story. Take a listen. Here are his instructions and advice for a smooth, daily flow, “How you set up your daily routine is how you will be able to conquer your mind, how you start your day and how you end your day. The first thing that I do when I wake up, I just say something that I'm grateful for, what, what is my mission for the day? And then immediately I go into listening to motivational videos. Now, I believe that a couple of things that cause the most friction in the morning is what we wear and what we eat. So, to eliminate this friction, at night I pick out my clothes and iron them. Then, I go ahead and cook and prepare my breakfast so that once I wake up in the morning, it's a smooth process. That is how I make sure the day is aligned.” His last bit of advice is, “Ultimately, I think there's one thing that we forget is that life is long and we need to be really patient, that things don't have to happen right away. But the number one message is to be aware of who you are and be okay with who you are.” Connect with Joe and learn more about his Garden here: - get your free ebook on Inspiring Leadership FB: Joe Pettit Instagram: Joe Pettit Inspires LinkedIn: Joe Pettit #cupofjoe #NLNLpodcast #speaker #leadership #beokaywithyou #inpsiration
