Time management ADHD challenges faced by ADHD entrepreneurs
"It becomes this kind of self punishing cycle where we are just constantly reminded of how we're quote, unquote, 'broken' and not like other people. And so I just want to normalize for anyone who's listening that you're not broken, your brain just works in a different way and you're getting advice that doesn't work for your brain. " – Katie McManus, Brave Business Coaching

A poignant moment from the episode’s transcript..
“I have had so many clients come to me who have ADHD diagnosis, and I've experienced this myself, where you get this advice from neurotypical who say, you have to time block. You should do the Pomodoro method where you set a timer for 30 minutes, work hard for 30 minutes, and then take a five-minute break.
Where they say, well, just chip it away at big projects like a little bit of day and we try it. We genuinely try it, and it just doesn't work for us. And I'm going to be going into why this doesn't work for us, but what ends up happening because it doesn't work for us, we start getting down on ourselves.
It becomes this kind of self-punishing cycle where we are just constantly reminded of how we're quote unquote, broken and not like other people. And so I just want to normalize for anyone who's listening that you're not broken, your brain just works in a different way and you're getting advice that doesn't work for your brain.”
