ADHD Leaders and Entrepreneurs

Overwhelmed and Starting a Business
Keywords:


I have just undergone a major life change.  I moved out of a very chaotic family situation (substance abuse) with my daughter and all our pets and relocated to NJ.  I am starting a business and I am feeling completely overwhelmed.  I was diagnosed with ADHD a year ago, which explained A LOT.

What I really need is some support with planning and accountability.  Maybe a group of like minded entrepreneurs having brainstorm sessions.  It would help if we could organize a group with a scheduled meeting time to help set goals and discuss our progress and difficulties. 

Team up to hold and be held accountable with following through with goals.  I could really use some support and feedback.

Oh, I am starting a small artisan chocolate business after years in commercial real estate.  I have many creative ideas and I am having difficulty prioritizing.

Any thoughts or suggestions.

***I highly encourage you to post this question to ADDitude’s new discussion forums, as well. I think your question would get a lot of attention in the Getting Things Done forum: https://www.additudemag.com/forums/forum/manage-your-life/getting-things-done/, specifically the Peer-to-Peer coaching thread. ADDconnect is transitioning over to this new forum now.***

An ADHD Coach can work with you on tailoring strategies, systems, and tools to be successful in your business venture. https://www.additudemag.com/add-coaches-the-basics/

If you can, hire an assistant who is strong in areas where you are weak, like prioritizing, planning, organization, getting things started, staying on target with goals and timelines, etc.
