Resources, coaching & community for neurodivergent business owners

Watch this 5 minute behind the scenes video to see what you get in the Neurodivergent Business Collective

 

 

Do you find yourself trying to fit into neurotypical business expectations and standards, only to end up feeling like you’re not putting your best self and ideas out there?

You’re not alone.

Many neurodivergent business owners (me included!) struggle with feeling like we’re constantly compromising for the comfort of others, leading to burnout, stress, and a sense that our businesses aren’t reflecting our true values and strengths.

Executive functioning, mental health challenges, fluctuating energy, limited capacity to do ‘peopling’… I get it, I live it, and I coach people through it daily!

Imagine a business that works WITH your neurodivergent brain.

You can (and deserve to) have a business aligned with your strengths, needs, and one that accounts for your challenges and support needs.

A business where you don’t have to mask, push through discomfort, or ignore your needs.

A business that honors your flow, your values, and your unique way of thinking.

You’re a neurodivergent business owner on a mission for clarity, connection, and a community that offers help, information, and guidance to navigate your business journey.

You deserve a business that’s profitable, and is a true reflection of your unique self. I get the challenges and aspirations that we neurodivergent folk deal with. I’m here to be the guide, coach, and cheerleader.

With the support, strategies, and community you’ll find in Neurodivergent Business Collective, you’ll transform your business to reflect your neurodivergent brilliance, and move towards an impactful business that’s truly aligned with what you need and want.

Hi! I'm Adina

I'm an AuDHDer (Autistic ADHDer), speech therapist, professional educator, podcaster, business coach, and multi-business human (my other business is Play. Learn. Chat.) .

My varied business career started in the mid-90s when my best friend and I had a quilling and card-making business 'KIDZ Design' and we lost money on our first and only market stall. Whoops. Learning.

I started a cushion-making and fabric-design business in 2012 to save money for a trip around South America... and to this day I still get around $10 a month of fully passive income from my fabric designs. Mogul-money!

I've since had a range of other business models, running a 'traditional' speech therapy clinic with a team, pivoting to an online business during COVID times, shifting from a mainly parent-audience to a mainly professional-audience, and now into a business-owner-audience.

I've learned a LOT along the way and one of the main things I now recognise is that business is a beautiful game for me, of endless learning, creativity, a way to help the corner of the world in a way that I believe is most impactful. All while shaping my business life to be more and more aligned with my needs.

I now see that it's possible to have a business that makes an important impact in the world, supports the life I need and want, AND makes money. I didn't always believe that. It takes work, and a lot of that work is internal - knowing yourself and what you want, need and enjoy.

I adore helping other business owners, especially those who are neurodivergent, to find what would be aligned for them, and to help them get there.

I hope you'll join me on this journey towards a more aligned business, for YOU! One that helps you thrive, share your spark with the world, and live a profitable and fun business life!

    A sneak peak inside the Collective Resources Hub

    Here’s a sample of the Webinars & Guest Speaker chats that are already waiting for you inside the ever-growing curated resource library.

    You also get templates, checklists, worksheets and loads more!

    What time do things happen? What if I can’t make them live? What timezone is everything in?

    All your time questions answered!

    Almost everything in the Neurodivergent Business Collective is *not* live, so you can participate, download or watch at a time that suits you.

    So it doesn’t matter what timezone you’re in, what your work and life schedule is like, or whether you have energy that fluctuates… You get to consume, interact and participate on a flexible schedule!

    Here’s what I mean:

    • Body Double sessions *are* live on Zoom, and are totally optional (everything is, really!). These are times that happen at least monthly and the times of day/week will vary. You turn up, state your work plan/intention/goal, and we just hang out on Zoom quietly working until a set time (break time and check in on goals!)

    • Webinars and guest speakers may sometimes happen as live events (you’ll get notice of this), and they will always be recorded for you to watch when you’re ready. Some webinars and guest speakers will only be recoded, not live. You’ll have about 1 week notice to submit questions to guest speakers. We answer your Q&As on these webinars and guest speaker chats.

    • Most of our Community aspect happens via chat, on Slack. You get to control your level of notifications to suit you – jump in regularly when it suits you to ask, discuss, get accountability, give suggestions, and connect with other members

     

    Upcoming Events

    May Webinar: Content creation – Strategy, planning and your aligned workflow

    May Guest speaker: Tina Mathams from Diverse Accountants / @theadhdaccountant

     

    Body Double sessions – live on Zoom. These happen at least monthly, generally on a Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday at various times. Members can book in to sessions at least 2 months in advance.

    Additionally, we encourage Collective members to connect with each other and set up your own body doubling (via chat on Slack or your own Zoom sessions) whenever you like!

    Inclusion & Accessibility

     

    Neurodivergent Business Coaching & Consulting is an inclusive business.

    I wholeheartedly embrace inclusivity and accessibility (and feedback to continually improve).

    This is a safe space for people of all neurotypes, communication methods, abilities, races, genders, orientations, ages, and cultural backgrounds.

    My commitment is to create a supportive and accommodating environment for everyone. I may not always get it right but I’m always open to feedback and suggestions.

    Here’s how we make the Resource Hub content accessible:

    • All videos are captioned – turn captions on or off
    • Transcripts are provided for videos
    • Video speed can be changed by the viewer to be faster or slower to suit your needs
    • I use colour-coding throughout the whole Resources Hub site, to help you navigate around
    • Written documents are designed to be clearly laid out, visually appealing (I think so anyway!) and visual
      I’m always open to feedback and suggestions, so members are welcome and encouraged to get in touch with me about accessiblity needs (and wants!) so I can best support your learning, inclusion and participation
