ADHD Leaders and Entrepreneurs
Breaking out of Corporate America - Need advice!
I’m a 33 year old female with ADHD. I’ve been very successful in the corporate realm but I feel like sitting in an office full of cubicles is slowly killing me. I’m able to cope with my ADHD at work but it’s extremely draining. I’m constantly stuck in meetings and in “small talk” with co-workers when all I want to do is just sit with ear-plugs in and try to accomplish something. I put 110% into work everyday but at the end of the week, I have a hard time seeing tangible value. I long to work for myself, to wake up every morning and do something that I love, to put 110% into something that is mine, to not have 5 bosses pulling me in different directions every minute of the day. I have a couple of good business ideas that I start but never finish, and that makes me so frustrated with myself. The scope of my business keeps growing in my head, until i’m overwhelmed and just don’t start it. I overanalyze what it will take for me to start my own company and then I just don’t start it. I just know deep down that i’m not built to work in corporate America. I feel more accomplished spending a day in the garden or building something at home than I do spending 40 hours in a cubicle. I need some advice from successful ADHD entrepreneurs. How did you get started? How did you build enough confidence to break out of the corporate ball and chain and do something that you actually love? help :(
