Interview with Tara McGillicuddy: Running a Successful Business as and ADDer: The Ups and Downs of An Entrepreneur with ADHD

Yesterday Marcia and I interviewed Tara McGillicuddy. Tara is a successful business owner and she has ADHD. What is really cool is that Tara’s business in helping people with ADHD lead happy and productive lives. Tara was one of the first people to use the internet as a way to connect people with ADHD.

Marcia and I picked Tara’s brain on how she overcomes her ADHD challenges to run this successful business.

Grow Your Business, Get Things Finished, and Be Your Best When It Really Matters

In our Business Brilliance call yesterday, Marcia and I answered some wonderful questions. Here is a sample:

  • A photographer wanted assistance on a problem she faces in her growing business. When you have ADHD, the answer is always to do what comes easiest to you, and after a quick brainstorm, we found out what that was for her.
  • One listener wanted tips on how to follow through on tasks and get things finished (a common ADHD complaint that is very frustrating).
  • We also addressed the fine line between mindset and ADHD.
  • And, how to show up and be your best when it really matters.

Dr. Brene Brown on The Power of Vulnerability

Jacqui and I talked about this video on our call on January 24th in response to a listener’s question. The listener wanted advice on how to manage keeping his ADHD from his employees, and the fear he had of losing their respect if they found out.

Listen to the call in the January 24th post below for our response to his question, and watch this powerful video from Dr. Brene Brown. Dr. Brown led an extensive study into human connection with surprising results. Here’s the Readers’ Digest version:

Here’s what she found: There are two types of people — [Read more...]

How we personally set goals for our businesses — strategies that work!

What did 2010 look like for you?

I love to stop and take a look at my successes at this time of year. It gives me a big boost for starting to set my goals and plan my successes for next year.

On Monday during our “Ask Marcia & Jacqui Anything!” call, Jacqui and I recorded a special session. We shared our own year-end practices and talked about what we personally do to set goals for our own businesses. [Read more...]

Get Out of the Weeds!

Entrepreneurs with ADHD need to stay out of the weeds!

The entrepreneur’s path — whether you’re an entrepreneur with ADHD or not — is rarely a straight line: we go off on detours, get sidetracked, bump into obstacles, and sometimes even back up a little as we move towards the goals for our businesses. But it’s really important not to get “stuck in the weeds.”

Because of the traits we have that enable us to be entrepreneurs in the first place — a high degree of creativity, the ability to take risks, chutzpah, and the sheer number of ideas we generate — it’s so easy to follow every bright shiny object that crosses our path. [Read more...]
