Welcome to “Focus, Control, & Balance: How to Take Charge, Get Out of Overwhelm, and Stay on Track for Business Owners with ADHD”



Welcome! We’re so pleased you’re coming to our live retreat!

We’ll be meeting in Detroit May 2 – 4, 2013.

Below are some things you need to know.

The Inn
Your retreat ticket covers the teaching and content of the retreat itself. Travel, hotel, and meals are additional. We’ve reserved an entire house for us at the Inn on Ferry Street in the Historic District of revived Midtown Detroit. The Inn is a collection of restored Victorian homes that has been winning national preservation and accommodation awards since they restored it in 2000. The reduced room rate for the retreat is $139 plus tax per night. All rooms have one queen bed and a roll away bed can be added for $25 per night if you want to double up. Call the Inn at 313-871-6000 and ask for the Marcia Hoeck room block to get the discounted rate. Room rate includes wifi, breakfast, and shuttle to local restaurants and venues.


The retreat will be Thursday May 2 – Saturday May 4. You’ll want to fly in on Wednesday, May 1, because we’ll be starting early on Thursday morning. We’ll have sessions both days Thursday and Friday. We’ll have a partial day on Saturday the 4th, and you can either arrange to leave later that day or stay over to the next day. (We’ll be finished by 2:00 pm on Sat., so you can fly out on a 5 pm flight or later.)


You can fly into the Detroit Metropolitan Airport (DTW), which is a large international airport. Taxi to the hotel runs $35 to 65, or you can arrange to get a private car through the Inn for $55. As people register and let us know their arrival times, it may be possible to share a ride from the airport with another participant.

Breakfast is included with your room, and includes eggs, waffles, fruits, yogurt, cold and hot cereals, breads and muffins, juices, and coffee and tea. We’ll be going out to dinner as a group at least one night. Detroit has a wonderful GreekTown, and we’d like to take everyone there. There are other restaurant options as well, and we can go by the free shuttle. We can have our lunches brought in by local restaurants or caterers.


The retreat
We’re calling the retreat “Focus, Control, & Balance: How to Take Charge, Get Out of Overwhelm, and Stay on Track for Business Owners with ADHD. We’ll be a small, intimate group. It will be a hands-on event, where we’ll be working through exercises and making progress on our individual challenges right there and then. We’ll be brainstorming and masterminding, and we expect lots of ahas and mindset shifts. As the time gets closer, we’ll keep you in the loop about the exact retreat content and schedule. As you might imagine, it will be business-building content, fueled by specific strategies for the ADHD business owner.

You’ll be learning around our 4-Step ADHD Business Process:

Step 1: Get Started Right. This step is about the importance of laying the groundwork for working with your ADHD. You can’t build a strong business on a weak foundation.

Step 2: Work with Your ADHD, Not Against It. ADHD is different for everyone, so this step will help you get to know your own unique ADHD and how to work with it instead of struggling against it.

Step 3: Have the Right Tools for the Job. This step is about having the right tools to be able to work through whatever comes at you in business when you have ADHD, so you can work through the challenges effectively.

Step 4: Be Prepared for Business Changes and Growth. Structure is important for any business owner, but especially for those with ADHD. Having structure lets you know in advance how you’re going to do things, and having repeatable methods and processes takes a lot of weight off of your shoulders and reduces anxiety. They give us a base, a framework to operate from.

You can bring a friend for $197. This is a discounted rate — perhaps you and your friend could pool the investment and split the savings!

We’re taking people first come, first served. The people who are responding so far are awesome and amazing.

After you register, we will be in touch with you via email regarding additional details as they become available. *Please make sure we have your main email address for retreat correspondence if you use a different email address for PayPal, as the email you give us when you register through PayPal is the one we will use to contact you.
