Neurodivergent individuals tend to be ‘out of the box’ thinkers and thrive when they have autonomy at work. Consequently, many are drawn toward becoming entrepreneurs. In addition, being self-employed allows for creative ideas and artistic talents to shine.
Having a brain that works differently can be a competitive advantage. You may excel at solving problems, being innovative and creative, and picking up on ideas and solutions that others might miss. Conversely, you may struggle to stay focused and motivated, have difficulty communicating or delegating tasks, and may struggle to manage your emotions.
The world of entrepreneurship is both exciting and a bit daunting. The beauty of being self-employed is that it allows for more freedom in shaping your environment, which can be fantastic for neurodivergent individuals. The downside is that running a successful business requires highly developed executive function skills.
You can work 1:1 with a Coach or join our Neurodivergent Entrepreneurs Community on Mighty Networks. We offer creative problem-solving and tips and tricks for navigating the business world. Then we collaborate with you to create a personalized action plan.
This is where ADDvocacy comes in. We understand your unique strengths and challenges and can help put your business on the map! Our coaching focuses on the ‘behind the scenes’ elements of emotional regulation and executive function skills needed to run a successful business.
Your success is deeply connected to your awareness of yourself. You need to know what you want and dare to go after it. This involves understanding your skills and talents but also recognizing potential barriers.
It is important to play to your strengths, build a support network, and take a proactive approach to problem-solving.
You do not have to wait for a crisis to ask for help - you can join our community or start working 1:1 with a Coach today.
Our Executive Function Coaches build trust and rapid rapport as peers by drawing on our own experiences living with neurodiversity. We’re able to help because we’ve been there too! Together, we'll create an environment where you feel confident and empowered.
An ADDvocacy Coach facilitates the Neurodivergent Entrepreneur Group Coaching. By sharing their entrepreneurial experiences, each participant develops confidence in their abilities and feels comfortable discussing their challenges and achievements. If the group encounters a problem they can not solve, your ADDvocacy Coach brings in an expert speaker who shares their knowledge and is available to answer questions.
We work with you to establish your skills and habits to move forward. Drawing on our understanding and recognition of neurodiversity, we use our toolkit of strategies, models and systems to transform your ideas and unique learning style into a winning advantage!
We get it. We understand the challenges neurodiversity presents because – just like you – we live with those same challenges every single day.
We refuse to let neurodiversity stop you from reaching your full potential. Our team of professional Coaches will work with you to develop your own, personal strategy that will enable you to thrive in your day-to-day life.
Succeeding in school, work, as an entrepreneur, and in life starts with the ability to believe that we can be successful! Sometimes it's hard to see that in ourselves but our peer-coaches can help!
That's why we're just a click away.
