About Alan:
Alan Brown Headshot
An executive, entrepreneur and coach, Alan created the acclaimed ADD Crusher™ video series. Undiagnosed until well into adulthood, his untreated ADHD manifested in all-too-familiar ways – underachievement, substance abuse and worse. Upon diagnosis, he found it difficult to learn coping strategies from books, so he developed his own unique strategies while building a successful advertising career. (The resulting 10 “Ways” comprise the curriculum in ADD Crusher™ Videos I and II.) Alan’s been a featured presenter at ADHD conferences, countless webinars, and at TEDx San Diego, and is co-author of the best-selling 365+1 Ways to Succeed with ADHD. Alan will be presenting on this and other topics at the ADDA Conference in Detroit this month, in New York City in September and at the ADDISS Conference in Liverpool, England in October.

Sarah Wright Close up Photo

As I always say in the introduction to the Podcast, I am a professional ADHD coach. Well what does that really mean? And how does someone become a professional ADHD coach? There are several organizations that provide ADHD coach training. I consider the ADD Coach Academy where I got my training to be the gold standard. My training consisted of over 150 hours of classroom time plus countless hours of homework and supervise coaching.
In addition to the actual training, it’s important that we also have additional resources. The ADHD Coaches Organization fulfills this need in a great way.
The ADHD Coaches Organization or ACO as it’s known provides some of the following things:

  • a professional organization for people with ADHD to find coaches
  • a place for coaches to exchange information
  • place for coaches in one part of the country to ask for resources in another part of the country that particular client might need.
  • An annual conference for coaches to learn and to share

I’ll be speaking at the ACO Conference again this year in Atlanta in a couple of weeks for those of you listening to the podcast when it comes out. For the rest of you that’s April 2013. My topic will be the top 10 Apps for coaches and clients.

I’m proud to be part of the ACO. This week I’m bringing you an interview with Sarah Wright who is the current president of the ACO. We’ll talk a little bit about coaching and why the ACO is so important to coaches. Make sure you visit the ACO site at http://www.ADHDcoaches.org. There’s a great find a coach section as well as other information on working with a coach.

You’ll notice that we had a little difficulty with sound – specifically with the Skype connection, but it turned out to be a great interview anyway.

Logo Your First Virtual Assistant Podcast
Today, we are going to be talking to my good friend Jonathan Shank from YourFirstVirtualAssistant.com. As ADHDers, there are activities or tasks that we can really get into. We’re good at them, we enjoy them, and you could even call them strengths. We rock at those activities. There are other activities that are not in our sweet spot, but they are activities that can help us in some way. These are tasks that we might struggle with and maybe have real difficulty in completing them. There is a certain percentage of those tasks that we can get help with from a virtual assistant. This could be someone for whom doing these tasks is a real joy – and might even be a strength for that person.
Jonathan is a real expert at finding those types of matches and putting a process around it that makes it work. As you listen to this podcast, think about tasks that you might be able to get help with from a virtual assistant.
This would be a good session to listen to with some way to jot down your ideas as you listen to this conversation.

We have a great show lined up for you today. You know a lot of ADHDers turn out to be entrepreneurs and a lot of entrepreneurs turn out to have ADHD. Many of my clients are great entrepreneurs. It turns out that some of the ADHD tendencies we might have can be a strength in working for ourselves in a business where we might do everything – at least at first. For others of us, we found that working for ourselves gave us the flexibility to set ourselves up for success. It’s not all fun and games of course – some of those ADHD challenges can hold us back as well.
Today we are going to talk with Jacqui Sinfield and Marcia Hoeck. These coaches have their own independent practices but also team up together to help Entrepreneurs with ADHD. They have an interesting story and have done a lot to help ADHDers succeed in the world of business.

Head shot of coach Joel Boggess

Passion is always critical for people with ADHD. Our brains get engaged in things that we are excited about and things that we’re interested in, and we really don’t do well with things that we’re not interested in – No Offense!

A way to take interest up a level is to talk about passion. The things that we are dispassionate about, we really don’t do well with. We don’t remember, we don’t focus, and we’re distracted. The things that we are passionate about, man! those are the areas where we can hyperfocus and excel in.

It’s important to think about how we can bring more passion into our daily lives, in our jobs, in our family, in our relationships and learning, and all of the things that we are interested in, including our spiritual life, for instance. I’ve got a great interview for you today with a great friend of mine, Joel Boggess. Now Joel is a long-time career coach, and he’s recently written a book called Passion – 4 Places You Forgot to Look. It has some great stories of people who found their passion!

I’m a firm believer that stories trump data every time. So the great stories in this book can really hit home. As bonus, Joel has links to interviews he’s done with the people whose stories you find in the book. I really enjoyed talking to Joel. And I’m sure that you guys will enjoy this interview.

ADHD Weekly Podcast – Information, advice and experience to help you Thrive with ADHD. Play to your strengths!

In this episode Coach Jay Carter and Coach Robb Garrett talk about the foundations of how to have a great life with ADHD. Rob Garrett and I are both ADHD coaches in the Minneapolis St. Paul area. We often collaborate in various projects around creating awareness around ADHD, particularly in the corporate world.

I was recently interviewed on local CBS news station about ADHD in adults and about ADHD coaching as a part of the total treatment package. Here’s a link to the video of that interview. In this interview they took the 45 minutes of footage that they took with my client and myself and condensed it down to about 3 minutes.

A lot of people saw that interview, but it didn’t really give them enough information to know what the next steps are. Rob and I created a class called the basics of ADHD which was a free 90 min. class to provide a little more information. You can find a the recording of that class here.

With a 90 minute class we are able to go little more in depth into some of the different areas but we felt that a little more was needed. We are offering a five week class that will be offered each Thursday night beginning April 26th at 7 PM Central and will meet each Thursday night through May 24th. As I release this podcast, the class will be this coming Thursday. So if you’re interested, you’ll want to sign up right away. If the class is already started, you can still sign up and have access to the recordings of any classes that already happened and can join the rest of them in progress. All people who sign up for the class will have access to the records afterwards. After May 24 recordings will be available for purchase on my website.

To Register for the class go to Foundations or go straight to the registration page at Eventbrite.

In this conversation that you’re about to hear with Rob and I talk about the subjects of the different weeks of the class but do it in the context of things that we wish we had known early on in our journey with ADHD.

In this episode, Jay interviews Dr. Steve Levinson the inventor of the Motivaider. Good habits are often hard to create because as ADHDers we often don’t think of the thing we wanted to change at the time we can change it. The Motivaider is a great tool to help us bring awareness to what has our attention.

The Motivaider is a small pager like device that can be easily programmed to provide a gentle private reminder through a vibration that only you can detect. The device is small enough to fit in a pocket and also comes with a clip for a belt.

I also mentioned that I will be talking about ADHD Coaching on WCCO Channel 4, the CBS affiliate in the Twin Cities Minnesota area. This will probably happen the week of November 7, 2011.

You know there is a lot of stigma associated with ADHD and the antidote for stigma is Awareness. There’s a new site out that is really awesome it’s call the ADHD Heroes Project. It features stories about people with ADHD who have succeeded and can be an inspiration to others. We all need more stories. Check it out!

ADHD Weekly Podcast – Information, advice and experience to help you Thrive with ADHD. Play to your strengths!

In this episode Jay talks being the best in the world based on Seth Godin’s book, The Dip

Seth Godin, who is a marketing genius who really looks at the world in a different way and encourages us to do the same. Seth Godin wrote a book called The Dip. The book has three main premises, and I’ll probably touch on all of them briefly because it’s such a fantastic book. But in the beginning of the book, he works to convince us of the importance and the rewards that come for being the best in the world. Another premise of the book has to do with the old saying quitters never win. Well, it turns out that winners quit all the time. The difference between the winners or the successful people at whatever activity they are involved in and the unsuccessful, is that the successful people quit the right things at the right time.

J-Peg of a mind map

What’s a Mind Map
Mind mapping starts out with a central idea or image. This could be a topic you’re researching or the day of the week that you’re creating a to-do list for. You will then create associations related to that central idea or image and then associations related to that second layer. If you picture a piece of paper with a circle in the middle and then spokes drawn from that center with other circles, you have the basic idea of how a mind map starts. The center circle is the main starting idea and the “spokes” of the wheel are the sub-topics that you will use to build upon the main idea. Color or other images used with this structure can really add further organization to a developing mind map.

Let’s Get Practical
Why should YOU be interested in mind mapping? Tony Buzan, who invented Mind Mapping, has taught the concepts to thousands of people around the world. Using mind mapping has been shown to increase productivity as much as 25% (or even more if you find yourself really stuck!) Mind Mapping also enables faster learning and improves memory because it allows you to think more clearly and logically to give your ideas a visually organized layout.

What Tools are Available?
We mentioned four mind mapping tools on the show:

Tony Buzan’s iMindMap

Buzan's iMindMap

Mind Meister – the online tool

MindManager from Mind Jet and FreeMind

Class Info:
If you are interested in learning more about mind mapping, Jay has created an online class for you to learn more about the ins and outs of mind mapping including a step-by-step process and a walk-through of several different mind mapping software applications. The 60-minute course will be followed by a 30 minute Q&A session.


The class is being held Thursday, October 14th at 8:30 pm EST. To register for the class simply visit http://learnmindmapping.com. The class cost is $97 but if you register by October 7th, you will receive a 30% discount.

Show Notes:

Why should you care about strengths:
Understanding your strengths with a diagnosis of ADHD helps you to focus on a path and find a specific direction. ADHD is a condition that centers around interest and attention so a focus on strengths is just one powerful way to engage your brain.

Let’s Get Practical:
Identifying your strengths can sometimes by the difficult part, so incorporating a book like Now, Discover Your Strengths and tests like StrengthsFinder 2.0 can help you find and maximize your strength so you are functioning at your highest potential.

Here are 5 components to reference when talking about strengths:
1. Super-fast learning
2. Sense of Satisfaction
3. Consistency and Confidence
4. Excellence
5. A Yearning to do whatever it is that the strength has you doing.

Identifying Strengths:
Here are some options for identifying strengths:
1. Review areas in your life where you have been able to hyperfocus on a particular activity and identify actions that you can take to recreate into you current daily activity that will encourage this same level of focus.
2. Take the online StrengthsFinder 2.0 to identify your areas of talent
3. Work with Jay one-on-one in a 90 minute session that uses personalized coaching and the StrengthsFinder 2.0 to unpack your strengths, brainstorm applications of your strengths and build an action plan. To find out more about this product visit: http://hyperfocusedcoaching.com/products/hyperfocused-strengths-builder/.

A Word About Weaknesses:
Dr. Ratey and Dr. Hallowell, who wrote Driven To Distraction and Delivered from Distraction have always stressed a strengths based approach to ADHD but it’s also important to identify weaknesses so that we create an environment to avoid these areas of weakness.

    One thing we mentioned early on is that the coaches on this particular call went through a very intense year-long training course at the ADD Coach Academy. The ADD Coach Academy or ADDCA as we call it is the gold standard that other ADHD coaching schools are measured by. If you don’t click with any of the coaches on this call, you can go to ADD Coach Academy and search for a coach.

    If you’re interested in becoming an ADHD Coach, I’d be happy to talk with you. You can get information on coach training from ADDCA by clicking on the logo below:
