Leonie Dawson Refuses To Be Categorised

By Leonie Dawson
Internationally best-selling author and creator of an 8 figure creative company Leonie Dawson (dat's me!) brings her ridiculous sense of humour and wild oversharing to the podcast world! What is this podcast about? Who f*cking knows! It's all a glorious mystery! But it will likely be a delicious buffet of self help, business, creativity, marketing, family and life... and I might just introduce you to some of my favourite people if I'm called. Mostly, I'm just here to create and share... and hope that it touches your heart in just the way it needs. (Pronouns: She/They)

I NEVER thought I would talk about this publicly... because this mistake still wakes me up in the middle of the night sometimes.

079: My Digital Declutter Experiment
Honestly, even if the only thing I did with this 21 day challenge experiment was to let go of social media, it would have been a life-changing success. Challenge #1 of No Social Media is now formally complete, though I still need to do a write up about the final results and how I’m moving forward with it. And even though the challenge is complete, I’m not returning to my old ways. This was far too good to be free of social media. It is my new normal. I’ve been moodling about what to do for Challenge #2... P.S. Read the companion blog post to this episode HERE!

063: Leonie's Best Books 2020 Fuck me it’s my favourite time of year. Not because of that whole Christmas thing, though that’s fine too. This is something better than that. I GET TO TALK ABOUT MY FAVOURITE BOOKS OF THE YEAR. *AND* IT IS WORKBOOK SEASON! If you’ve been around these parts for any length of time, you’ll know this is an annual tradition I’ve been doing since 2012. You can find all the yearly book lists here. As always, this is not a list of the best books published for the year – just the books I read in that year. As they say in High Fidelity, the records are organised autobiographically. AND… for a special bonus… I’ll even throw in my favourite TV shows + courses this year too. DON’T SAY I DON’T SPOIL YOU. You can also listen as a podcast episode below, if that’s more up your alley!

062: ASD AF: The Official Diagnosis
Dearests, It’s a momentous day for me. A couple of hours ago, I heard the words I’ve been waiting for all my life. “Congratulations, you have ASD.” I’ve known intuitively for six years now that Asperger’s is who I am, a part of my makeup, the constellation of my stars. And after giving myself the gift of a formal diagnostic process this year, I know it firmly and officially now too. ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) has given me deep and wide blessings in my life: + my sensitivity to seeing life in full colour + my ability to hyperfocus like a motherfucker + my obsession with learning + my quirkiness & my bluntness + my way of seeing things. It’s also brought with it challenges too: + how much I am emotionally & physically exhausted by life & social situations + how hard I struggled socially as a kid, feeling like I’d missed out on an important chip in the operating system + how hard it is to understand other people sometimes. One big thing I want to share is this: girls & women usually are not diagnosed with ASD because most psychologists & society at large is only aware of the ASD traits in boys & men. Girls & women have a completely different checklist. We aren’t the typical “Sheldons” – we are much better at learning how to mask socially, but it comes at a cost. If you asked me if I would wish it away, I would never. ASD is part of what makes my life richer, deeper & more divine. ASD is one of my superpowers. I’m so fucking PROUD to be neurodiverse. This world needs ALL OF US, with our rainbow of brains, abilities, genders & sexualities to be whole & magnificent. I love you, Leonie Also: ASD AF P.S. If you want to learn more, you read the companion blog post to this episode HERE! P.P.S. Here’s my original blog post from five years ago.

Also: before you bother fucking debating whether using neo-nazi symbols are ok or not, do me a favour and just unfollow me now. Give my banning finger a wee break. Otherwise, if you'd like to continue hanging out, drop me a fist of solidarity in the comments... in the shared understanding that fascism, neo-nazism, racism & all the other bullshitisms are NOT COOL, let's do that.

035: Why You Need To Set Goals
I have been talking about goals and the importance of goal setting for approximately a billion fucking years… Let’s talk about: the fact that 80% of peeps don’t set goals (WTF?!) 16% think of their goals but don’t write them down 3% of people think of goals AND write them down only 1 fucking percent of people think of their goals, write them down and revisit them more than once Guess which group were the higher achievers? Hot tip: the 1% Don’t forget you can use tools to help create and set goals! If you haven’t already, make sure you check out the Goals Planners! I made them to serve myself as I transitioned into motherhood. I knew I needed to set some goals to get through that year, but there was nothing on the market back then. I love rainbows, and colour and glorious joy… So I CREATED it. Now they’ve been used over 400’000 people WORLD. WIDE. Fucking mind boggling. So if you’re a Goal Getter already, I wanna hear about the biggest blessings and miracles because of the workbooks! It’s never too late to get started on the workbooks, or your goals!

010: Josh Weed - The Gay Mormon Who Married A Woman
Today, I have the deep honour of introducing you to my friend Josh Weed. Josh is a gay Mormon who married a woman. He is a viral blogger and has appeared on The Ricki Lake Show, Nightline and ABC News. He’s not just that though – how can you possibly contain the magnificence of a soul? Josh is a family and marriage therapist. He’s a soul willing to do the deep work of healing himself. He shares his innermost agonies, fears and spiritual awakenings with a raw and real and rare honesty. I believe his story of coming to accept and own his sexuality has the power to change the world. Links: Josh's original viral post from 2012 coming out as a gay, married Mormon Josh's viral post from 2018 announcing the end of his marriage Josh and Lolly's Youtube series Josh's therapy listing Show notes:
