๐Ÿ‘‹ Hey There!

This is issue #1 of ADHD In Biz, The Newsletter for ADHD Entrepreneurs, where I share with you 3 things every week that make building your business simpler if you have an ADHD

๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ’ป Top Platforms for ADHD Business Owners


Notion


Notion is a connected workspace that lets you keep track of everything in one place.


It offers organisational tools, including task management, project tracking, to-do lists, bookmarking, and more.

In fact, I run my entire business from Notion.

๐Ÿง  Hereโ€™s why I love it and why itโ€™s great for ADHD brains:


๐Ÿคธโ€โ™‚๏ธ Itโ€™s Flexible


ADHD brains flourish when they control their own workflow. Notion provides enough structure for ease of use while also allowing you the space to design it to your own needs


๐Ÿ˜ Itโ€™s Not Overwhelming


Iโ€™ve tried numerous project management tools and have found them to be WAY too much for my brain. The design of Notion is beautiful and easy to navigate!


๐Ÿ’ธ Itโ€™s Free


While there is a pro-version, the free version of Notion is AWESOME!


Focus@Will


Focus@will provides music that helps you focus that is optimized by science. I love to work to music and having a platform designed specifically for that purpose is unbelievably helpful.


๐Ÿง  Hereโ€™s why I love it and why itโ€™s great for ADHD brains:


๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ”ฌ Itโ€™s backed by world-class neuroscientists


With so many tools playing to the ADHD market, being backed by genuine and authentic research is so important when incorporating tech into your ADHD workflow.


๐ŸŽต Music is the ultimate focus tool for ADHD brains


Music increases dopamine, provides stimulation and improves mood. All of these are fantastic for building a business with ADHD!


๐Ÿคฏ They have a specific channel for ADHD brains

This channel is superficially curated and tested to work for ADHD brains!

โค๏ธโ€๐Ÿ”ฅ โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹Using BAM & LAF to Beat Burnout


One of the biggest bandits for building a business with ADHD is BURNOUT.


Burnout is usually caused when your energy can't keep up with your output.


In other words, when youโ€™re overwhelmed AF.

โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹

ADHD brains donโ€™t often donโ€™t do well maintaining a rigid schedule, so I created this system for life AND business management to free up my brain space and protect that oh-so-vital energy I know I need to run my business.


๐Ÿ‘€ Hereโ€™s how it works:

I have a Notion page that is split into two headings.

ย 


ย 

(Donโ€™t worry, thereโ€™s a notion template for you to have your very own linked below)


Any time a task comes up during the week for business, rather than letting it distract me, stress me out or weigh me down, it goes on the Business admin Monday list.


If it is urgent, it goes under urgent if not, then, you guessed it, Non-urgent.


There are 3 rules to this system:


๐Ÿ“ Anything that comes up MUST go on the list

๐Ÿšจ Everything on the urgent list must get done on Mondays

โœ… I must move 3 non-urgent tasks to urgent each week


I apply the exact same system to life admin (making appointments, for example) but instead for Fridays.


On Mondays/Fridays, I take ZERO clients so I can make sure these lists are my only focus.


Since using this system, I have been:

๐Ÿ‘‰ WAY less distracted

๐Ÿ‘‰ WAY more productive

๐Ÿ‘‰ WAY less stressedโ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹

๐Ÿฅฑ Feeling Uninspired?


Some days you just canโ€™t seem to get going.


Your mood is low, you feel uninspired and lifting your laptop screen feels heavier than carrying 6 elephants in full suits of armour โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹๐Ÿ‹๏ธโ€โ™€๏ธ ๐Ÿ˜


On those days, I look to the voices of those who have โ€œbeen there, done thatโ€. Specifically, their voices on Podcasts.


If youโ€™re having a down day, here are 3 podcast episodes Iโ€™ve listened to recently that have got me back up and in the game!
