Hi All, So I know there will be quite a few posts saying how adhd doesn't exist, it was created to sell pills, etc, etc. Go ahead and post! I'm just letting you know you will be wasting your time. To anyone with adhd--- try not to let posts like that get you down. I've been a lurker on here for quite some time. I've had a business plan involving social media and 7878's method for two years now. I have recently starting acting on it more. I have 30 businesses review's bookmarked, personalized white paper, fee structure, some service guidelines for me, and this is all as of today. I started treatment for adhd a few months ago, and my life is improving. I would like to start trying to move to self employment, because honestly it seems fun, exciting, and way less complicated then holding down a retail job where I won't make enough to pay for the rest of school, and makes my schedule impossible to organize. I have some school debt, but refuse to take out more loans because I'm starting to view post education (and education) in the US as a scam. I still want a degree, but more because I always wanted that college experience, and I think it will be good for social interaction as well as super technical courses. (And CU loves weed). I'm going for a B.S in Software Engineering or Human Centered Computing. I'm currently at community college and finally doing well after failing out of university, losing my mother to type 1 diabetes, and being diagnosed with adhd. My life makes a lot more sense now. I'm still going "poor/why me", but I'm quickly moving out of that. I'm thinking of doing the social media/ORM because I just get it! I've been revisiting it time and time again these past two years. I am very passionate about how a companies online presence can impact their bottom line, and how understanding this online presence can help your business, non profit, etc, etc. Basically the internet fascinates me, I have some complicated website/social media ideas for certain minorities/social issues, but I know I will not be able to act on those for a few years as I need to learn website design. The only thing I don't like about 7878's method is I fear businesses will not attempt to change any inherent problems, even with the review summaries I will send them, and people will get angry at my business for doing something "unethical". I'd hire out taxes, and outsource a lot. I have some savings from when my mom passed, so I'm thinking of taking out say $2000 for startup. It's kind of funny, because I always knew what I wanted to be when I grew up.... that person going from meeting to meeting, stopping by the office to address a project, taking a break at the gym, doing various small projects, checking in with my various teams and traveling for business. I like things that are exciting, fast paced, chaotic (tho not life or death), with a lot of new information. IM seems perfect for this. I also LOVE social media, and LOVE to talk about how important social media is. However, I'm looking for honest input from IMer's who have ADHD. My family/therapists either doubt I can have my own business, or they just kind of ignore it when I bring it up. I think this has caused me to become very overwhelmed, because life doesn't work on a retail income, and I feel like they never really listen to me. Add a very sick mother, coming out, failing out of school, and fighting undiagnosed adhd subconsciously... I was just exhausted, and stopped doing anything. I also smoked a ton of pot, which I think caused quite a bit more procrastination problems. I have cut back to only weekend nights between 7pm-midnight. I feel like I am being very realistic with myself, but I have messed that up before. I don't know exactly what to ask, so this is a bit rambling. (That is one thing that I will need to practice before meeting with clients-conversational skills). My conversational skills didn't use to be so bad, but I've been very isolated. I don't have social anxiety, I like telling people what's good for them, esp. when it comes to tech. Roadblocks I need help getting over (therapists have been useless in the work situation- as they refuse to do more than acknowledge my self employment dreams): 1) Organizing thoughts/points before meetings with clients 2) Being able to speak clearly when asked questions, or interrupted 3) Accountability during uninteresting times 4) How to make your business adhd proof (I've got some savings wiggle room) 5) Any organizations tips to not forget little details (I currently use ical, mindmaps, evernote, and reminders) 6) Do you work in spurts, or do you try to keep to a schedule 7) Anything?! I so appreciate you taking the time to read this, I know it's not a typical blackhatworld post, but I bet it might help some people. (And yes I do take meds, they've helped a lot, but I know it's not the end all be all) Any tips/advice/experiences will be greatly appreciated.
