Episode 313: How I Get Sh*t Done

Show Notes

Vicky officially “comes out” as a person with ADHD, and Joe interviews her about how she gets stuff done as a writer and book coach, how she copes with her ridiculous brain, and they offer suggestions on what to do when “foolproof” tools don’t work for you. There’s also a Magic Mike moment when Joe takes off his shirt, which is SUPER radio. Enjoy!
