"Running a business can be difficult enough, but when you add the challenges of ADHD, things can become more troublesome. Our virtual class will address these issues and help with solutions."
Grosse Ile, MI (PRWEB) September 16, 2013
Working with ADHD.com has been coaching business owners with ADHD to have strong and successful businesses through private coaching and live workshops across North America. On September 18, 2013, the veteran coaches will present the live virtual teleclass, “Look! Squirrel! How to Stop, Find Direction, and Get Things Done.” The free class is designed to help business owners and independent reps with ADHD stop the cycle of distraction, procrastination and overwhelm so they can be productive in their work.
“Running a business can be difficult enough, but when you add the challenges of ADHD, things can become more troublesome,” says Jacqueline Sinfield, ADHD coach and co-founder of Working with ADHD.com. Sinfield and her partner, business coach Marcia Hoeck, founded the coaching company to help ADHD business owners, independent reps, and managers gain more control over their businesses and lives. On September 18, their virtual teleclass, accessible by phone from anywhere in the world, will address work and business issues common to adults with ADHD.
According to the National Resource Center on ADHD, “Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a condition affecting children and adults that is characterized by problems with attention, impulsivity, and overactivity. It affects between 5-8 percent of school age children, and between 2-4 percent of adults.”
“Because the characteristics of ADHD don’t generally work with strict time schedules and confinement to a desk or cubicle, and because creativity is also a common trait, many adults with ADHD start their own businesses,” says Hoeck. “These business owners do extremely well in their areas of expertise, but need support where their ADHD and business clash – such as with procrastination, prioritization, focus, and overwhelm. Our virtual class will address these issues and help with solutions.”
Sinfield is a registered nurse and has a degree in psychology. She is a qualified counselor and certified coach who has helped hundreds of adults with ADHD, using methods she developed to help her own dyslexia. She is the author of the book, “Untapped Brilliance: How to Reach Your Full Potential as an Adult with ADHD.”
Hoeck is an experienced business coach who was diagnosed with ADHD as recently as two years ago. She has over 30 years of business experience and understands the struggles that other business owners face, especially those with ADHD. She teaches the systems that worked so well in her business to manage her own challenges, before she knew ADHD was the cause.
Hoeck and Sinfield shared, “We weren’t born with all the answers, nor are we naturally organized, tidy, or good with time. But we did find answers to our own problems -- one of us with ADHD, and the other with dyslexia -- and then found that our solutions worked well for our clients too. Not only did our methods work, they continue to give us -- and our clients -- tremendous results.”
The free virtual class will help business owners with ADHD by taking a 4-step approach. One of those steps includes learning to work with ADHD -- not against it – allowing business owners to focus on business.
Hoeck and Sinfield look forward to helping business owners learn how dopamine levels affect motivation, how to use self accountability to set deadlines and be more productive, how to break down and tackle large projects systematically, and how to create systems that work for people with ADHD.
