As an ADHD entrepreneur, I’ve learned a lot of lessons in my more than two decades as an entrepreneur. I’ve failed, I’ve succeeded, and I’ve had to learn lessons the hard way. Here are five important business lessons that have stuck with me throughout my career that may be helpful for other ADHD entrepreneurs who don’t want to do it the hard way like I did.
Accountability is Key
When you’re running your own business, it can be easy to let things slide, especially when no one is around to hold you accountable. But accountability is essential if you want to stay on track and ensure success. Having someone who will help keep you motivated and on task can make all the difference for your business. I found that daily accountability has allowed me to hit my 6 and 7 figure income goals consistently.
Stop trying to DIY things
No matter what kind of business you’re running, chances are there are experts out there who know more than you do about certain aspects of it. Don’t be afraid to reach out and ask questions or even hire someone with expertise. Investing in expert help can save time and energy and make sure your business runs smoothly and reach income goals quickly.
You Need Structure
Having structure means having a plan—a plan that includes goals, milestones, timelines and deliverables. Having a vision for where you want your business to go is great but without the structure in place to get there it won’t happen overnight or even at all. That accountability I talked about above will help you stick with your goals so that your plans don’t fall by the wayside due to procrastination or lack of motivation.
You Need Consistency
Every successful entrepreneur knows how important consistency is when it comes to keeping up with their business goals. Consistency means doing the same tasks until they become second nature—which will eventually lead to bigger accomplishments in the long run! This could mean anything from writing blog posts on a regular basis, networking daily or responding promptly to customer inquiries – whatever tasks need completing should be done consistently if success is expected!
Persistence is key.
Entrepreneurship is not easy, and there will be many challenges along the way. However, persistence is key to success. Keep pushing forward, even when things get tough, and don’t be afraid to take risks. With hard work and perseverance, you can achieve your goals and build a successful business.
Learning these five lessons has been invaluable for me as an entrepreneur but also as an ADHD business owner navigating the world – which can often feel overwhelming if not managed properly! It’s important to remember that success doesn’t happen overnight – it takes hard work, dedication and discipline – but if you commit to staying accountable, seek expert help when needed, creating structure within your routine and being consistent then success will follow!
If you are having trouble with accountability, knowing what to do next (or even first), not sure how to create structure or how to find an ADHD consistency journey. THAT IS WHY I AM HERE to make all of this EASY!!
