090: Undefended Living, Racism, ADHD, and Inherent Worth with Ellis Delaney

Ellis Delaney - The School of Bravery - EmilyAnnPeterson.com

I first heard about Ellis, because one of her patrons suggested that I would REALLY love her songwriting. I immediately became a patron myself. Then later met Ellis Delaney in person at the Rocky Mountain Song School & Folk Festival. She taught a really excellent workshop on planning, project management, and undefended living as an artist. In that workshop, she briefly mentioned her ADHD and I just knew she would be a perfect guest expert for The School of Bravery.

This month in the School of Bravery, we're focusing on the bravery ingredient of "Constraints." As an artist with ADHD, I knew she'd be a perfect guest expert to speak on this ingredient because she has so masterfully adapted to her constraint without letting go of the standards and expectations she has for her career.

In this episode we talk about racism, pain, struggle, community, creativity, and a LOT more, specifically the topic of "Inherent Worth." This is definitely a conversation you'll want to continue with your friends and family, both online or in person.

As a guest expert in the School of Bravery, Ellis Delaney shared a mini-training on her 6 Crucial Tools to Creating with ADHD! So if you get easily overwhelmed by your dreams and goals, then you'll love what she has to share in that. You can enroll as a student for as little as $25/month and access her training along with all the other guest expert trainings in your student portal at http://schoolofbravery.com

I know you'll love Ellis and her work as much as I do because she is so thoughtful, intentional, and compassionate. Yay Ellis!
