008. How to Stay Focused & Consistent from a Business Owner With ADHD

  by Keleigh Lauermann  

Do you love shiny objects? I know I do. I love the feeling of doing something new and dreaming up new ideas… I could do it all day everyday. And when I started my business, that's exactly what I did.

As a result, I constantly felt like I was failing. Missing deadlines, forgetting about important tasks, avoiding my inbox… it was a recipe for disaster.

Looking back 4 years later I realize now that what I went through in that first year was the perfect storm of untreated ADHD symptoms.It was NOT the personality flaw I kept telling myself it was… but rather a very real battle that I was struggling to win.

Now, I’ve been able to grow Anchor Design Co. to multiple 6 figures, figured out the focusing strategies that work for my brain, and I’ve learned to give myself more grace than Keleigh of 4 years ago ever understood was possible.

Today, I’m sharing more of my story and the three most effective strategies for staying focused and consistent that I’ve picked up over the past four years. Whether you’re living with ADHD like I am, or you just want to work more efficiently and find ways to be more consistent these are strategies that you can use to be more productive and find your focus, even when it feels impossible. Let’s dive in!
