    sWelcome to the Differently Aligned Podcast for Neurodivergent Business Owners. I’m Adina Levy, an autistic ADHDer and a multiple business owner.

    Welcome to the Differently Aligned Podcast for Neurodivergent Business Owners. I’m Adina Levy, an autistic ADHDer and a multiple business owner. 

    From a card making business at age 8, through to handmade cloud cushions, running a speech therapy team with a traditional office, and now to my lean, profitable, nimble, and fun online businesses, Play. Learn. Chat. and Neurodivergent Business Coaching and Consulting.

    I’m all about supporting neurodivergent business owners like you to build a business that is aligned with your brain, your skills, your passions, your wants, your support needs and your life. And it can be profitable, fun and impactful along the way.  

    So join me for ideas, support, conversations and guidance to grow your business without burning out. Let’s turn up the fun, the flow, and the alignment.

     I’m recording on the traditional lands of the Gadigal and Bidjigal people, and I acknowledge the traditional owners of the lands wherever you’re listening to this.  

    I totally, totally, totally love nerding out on automating computerised bits and pieces of my businesses. It is one of my spins also known as special interests. I love thinking about systems and automations and I can go deep, deep down into systematizing and automating  and I can be stuck there.  Well past midnight sometimes. 

    So it’s something I actually have to watch and check myself because I can. Just get very obsessed. And it’s usually for a really, really good reason. You know, sometimes people need sleep as well. So in this episode, I’m going to be sharing my oughta love of streamlining, automating systematizing.  I really wanted to share these really practical ideas. 

    I’ve got some ideas of things you can try straightaway. All very, very soon that are not big deep projects, but actually just little but important ways that you can increase the flow and fluidity in your business. That just happens with digital bits and pieces working in your favor. 

    If you already love automating and streamlining and systematising, then probably you’re going to tune in and you’ll be like, cool. This is my jam. Let’s talk. If this doesn’t sound like something you love and I’m already starting to lose you, I would actually seriously encourage you to stay tuned. You probably need this moment. 

    I’m all about neuro-diversity affirming practice, whether it’s in my speech pathology, clinical hat in play,learn, chat, or in neurodivergent business, coaching and consulting, the whole point is about making lives. For neurodivergent people, more supported. More aligned. 

    Helping us understand ourselves better so that we can access a life that is closer to what is sort of our ideal, our natural inclinations or our ways that we think and want to do things. I believe that streamlining and automating your business is one of the most neuro-diversity affirming things you can do for yourself as an Neurodivergent Business owner. Let me explain more. 

    Think about everything you know, of your strengths and your challenges. And let’s actually hone in on our challenges for a little bit. Think about the things. It probably comes to mind fairly easily. Think about the things that you are not good at in your business. So we’ll keep our context of business here. Where do you fall down? Where do you go? Oh, I’m no good at that. I have no idea about that. I can’t do it. It’s well beyond me. What are the areas of your business life, where you just you’re terrible. You suck. Let’s just dwell in this for a moment because we’re going to move through it. 

    So, neurodiversity affirming approach we’re  going to flip that on its head a little bit, and rather than dwell on, what’s hard for you. We’re going to find ways of making that either a raised or outsourced, or as easy as possible. In this episode, we’re focusing on how to make those things. As easy as possible. If indeed they need to happen at all. 

    And once you do that, once you take away all of the friction involved in having to keep doing a thing that you hate or messing it up or dragging yourself to do this task, even though, you know, You’re no good at it. You hate it. It brings you down and it distracts you from the things you want to do. We want to reduce all the time and energy that you have to spend on those bad tasks. So that you can actually spend more time.  In enjoyment in flow, doing the things that you do love, and you are really good at some people talk about that zone of genius. 

    You will overall be a much happier, more calm, more adjusted person. If you do get to literally just spend more of your time doing the things that you like. So we want to take care of some of those. Druggie frustrating business tasks that are no good for you. Individually. So, you know, really thinking about. Your individual challenges and make those easier. And once we’ve done that, your whole life, your certainly your business life, but your whole life is going to feel a lot better. 

    So start by a little bit of a self-assessment think about where you do have friction in your business, where are balls being dropped. What do you procrastinate endlessly on? What do you avoid? What do you just hate or feel that you’re totally out of your depth? 

    Thinking about the kind of collection of activities or actions or parts of your business that formed your answers for those questions that will give you some clues. And what you may want to streamline and automate first. Now P S because this is something that I love doing. It is something that I talk a lot about in my Neurodivergent Business Collective. So that’s one space where you can get more support to do that. 

    And I can also support a handful of people doing one-on-one direct coaching either through message-based coaching, where we go back and forth over a month. And I can support you through implementing various things. 

    And I also have some scope for zoom one-on-one consultations as well. So I’ve got links in the show notes where you can register on the wait list for one-on-one business coaching support. If you think you would like some more guidance to implement some of this automating and streamline in your business. I would love to have the chance to help you with that. If I can. 

    When we do set up automations, it is a little bit of a time investment upfront to set these things up. So that they don’t have to keep happening in a manual way or keep not happening because somebody never really wanted to do the task. And you kept forgetting to do it every single month. 

    So we have to acknowledge there is an initial time investment, and generally these systems do need some sort of upkeep and monitoring, but it’s very, very minimal compared to what you can get as the result. You know, what can be the outcome where you literally don’t have to touch these tasks. They just happen.  

    I’m also going to give you some examples of what I’ve got set up, because that might be helpful to see where you could go with automation in your business. But I definitely want to first talk about some quick ideas that are fairly simple for you to implement because. My setup can be pretty complex and I don’t want to scare you off and make you think that that’s all it can be. 

    I kind of want to demonstrate what it can look like. But I do want you also to see. That just one simple task. Automated or simplified or streamlined is going to make a huge difference in your business. 

    So we’ll start with some of the quick ideas you could implement. And I want you to mainly be thinking about what will help you in those things you identified earlier, those areas that you struggle with, or you avoid. Those are the ones that you want to focus on first. You will get the most bang for buck or effort to reward. If you focus on finding a better way of doing those things that you really dislike. 

    So one quick idea is about creating templated responses to common emails. Let’s say, I know a lot of you listening might be in clinical practice. He might be a therapist of some kind. Do you have a template email for when there’s a cancellation and you need to notify them that there’ll be a cancellation fee charged. 

    Do you have a templated response when someone inquires  if they can access the service with you and what your availability is, or whether there’s a waitlist. Do you have a templated response for that? Essentially any email that you send more than once needs a templated response and you can absolutely customize them. And I think you still should customize them each time you send to the person, just to make sure that it truly makes sense for the particular scenario that you’re dealing with. 

    But starting with a template can make these emails so much easier. I generally find that the ones that have best to start with other ones that are hard to write, and they are often about cancellation policies. Things that are like upholding a policy, something that you might be sharing bad news with somebody. That can be the kind of email that weighed Neurodivergent folk. May very much avoid. Maybe we don’t want to disappoint somebody. 

    Maybe we’re wavering on whether we should apply our policy or not. And I find that just having it in a template written out where I’ve already taken the time to think about that response. Clarify the policy and uphold it. It makes it a lot easier to actually implement that policy. Keep your boundaries. 

    So can be really useful tool. If you use Gmail or a Google workspace, it has a feature internally within it. So literally at the bottom of every email, I think it’s three dots. You click that and you can kind of create templates and save them. I wish he could save them into folders and so on. You can’t do that. It’s pretty simple, but it works really, really well. I’m sure that other email providers like outlook and so on, probably have template, email features as well. 

    There is another tool and if you’re willing to go like a little bit more techie and. It’s not even that tacky. It’s just super powerful. There’s an app called text expander. I’ll pop the link in the show notes for it. I have used it for. Probably 10 years. It basically is an app that lives on my entire computer, so I can type a short code into anything. 

    I set up the codes. And it will expand into a full amount of text, whether it’s in my email app or whether I’m in my calendar app or,  wherever I am on my computer. That shortcut will turn into the lung thing that I have set up. It’s also incredibly powerful. So you can set up things like field and drop downs and all kinds of menu. So you don’t have to get complicated. You can just use it. To make your life really easy when you’re either it can hold your sort of templates. That’s an option. 

    And I use it all the time without even noticing now it’s just so embedded in my life as a shortcut for writing things that I write all the time. So for example, typing out my various email addresses, I always have a semi-colon and then a little letter code after that makes sense to me. The reason is I’m really never gonna accidentally type a semi-colon for any reason, other than to activate my little shortcut here. So I do like semi-colon E M meaning email. And I’ll put a L as in Adina Levy. If I’m putting my regular personnel emailing. I’ll do semi-colon E M N D. If it’s for Neurodivergent Business email, then my email address will pop up straight away. I’m probably only saving 10 keystrokes, but it just makes my life so good when I just do my little code and boom, my email address pops up straight away. I used to use it as well for writing clinical reports. 

    So I had a very complicated text expander. Kind of snippet, they call it set up. So it would generate a really big, extensive report with little sections I could toggle on and off. I could change the pronouns. For the individual child. So you wouldn’t accidentally be like, Billy, blah, blah, blah, shape, blah, blah, blah, and get it wrong while you’d like, enter the child’s name in every part of that report automatically. 

    And it wouldn’t mess it up. It can be really complex. So I would definitely go check it out if that’s something of interest to you and it can really help you where you kind of hold your email templates in there. If that’s all you used it for, it would be well worthwhile. 

    Another quick ID that you can implement is setting up rules in your accounting software. So I use xero X, E R O. I know that’s quite a lot of people use it and I have a feeling that many of the other. I popular accounting software is also have similar features. He take a little bit of time to set up a rule and the rule might be if a transaction is from this company or if the transaction is for this amount, code it in this way. And it then means that it’s one simple click of a button to kind of confirm and match transactions and code them to certain categories. That’s the kind of thing that is incredibly repetitive, incredibly boring. 

    I hate anything to do with bookkeeping and it is something I outsource mostly, but there’s still a little bit that I need to do on my own. And I used to do it all myself. Or I used to ignore it and avoid it all myself. So that’s just another little sidebar, which is that if there’s a task that you are just so not suited to either you can’t do it adequately or you’re avoiding, avoiding, avoiding, and there’s not a good way to automate the whole thing. And even if you automated it, you’d still hate it. Outsource. 

    I will say though, that having a lot of automations and streamlined systems going on in my businesses. It saves me a heap of money on admin time. And I do currently have two virtual assistants. Who are fabulous and help with a lot of different things. But I don’t need them to do the work that I call them the robots, but they’re just digital robots. I don’t need my VAs to do the work that the robots can do. They can do the more human work, the actual communicating and more thinking and processing and designing and that kind of thing. 

    Anyway, I took a little sidebar around outsourcing, but that is an important note. Is, you know, it’s not just your time that you’re saving, but you might be saving directly. Actually paying someone else to do something. If you can automate and streamline your systems much better. 

    A third thing that I’m so passionate about when it comes to streamlining and automating in your business. If you take bookings at all, if you have appointments. I’ve really encouraged you to find a way to set up online bookings where other people can book into your calendar. Even if you have a pretty complex calendar and you’ve got lots of mobile visits and you’re in different spaces or you’re a bit wary of opening it up for other people to book. Cause they might book at awkward times. I’ve gone through all of that thinking and hacks for all various different types of business models that I can pretty confidently say, I can help you figure out a way to make it work in your business. Probably. I personally use acuity calendar. Calendly is also pretty good. And I also happened to know that more recently, Google calendar now allows people to book in and also add payments and things like that. 

    Which is something I haven’t used cause I’m quite embedded in the acuity system and I’m very happy with it, but there are lots of options out there. Basically if possible use whatever you are already using, if that feature is available. So for many people, they might have practice management software and the external booking link thing is already an option within it. In some cases it’s extremely limited and not customizable. And then you might want to actually explore using a different booking platform for it. But I would always first try to find something that is already within the systems that you are using. 

    So the external booking link has I think, three main benefits. So what I mean by that is it’s client-side booking. So somebody clicks in to a website and they can see your calendar, they can see the available spots. They click on a spot. They can book it generally depends on your business. Set up emails. They take payment as they’re booking in. That’s an option. 

    I can think of at least three benefits. So one. Is, if you have picked your hours of operation or your hours where you have a break, like a lunch break, or you’ve set times that you want to have a break between clients and that kind of thing. When somebody books into your calendar directly through a website, they can’t argue with what’s popped up as available. Meaning, they can’t just have a back and forth with you, or they’re saying something like, oh, but can you just make it 15 minutes earlier? Because I’ve got this thing that I really want to do. No. The platform actually helps you keep your boundaries that you’ve already set out about your schedule. And in almost all cases, I believe that this is a real benefit to you. Especially as many Neurodivergent folks, we might have a lot of difficulty. Keeping those boundaries that we’ve set out, we might have in mind a care. I really want to make sure I’ve got at least a 45 minute lunch break each day. I know I need that to regenerate, but as soon as somebody kind of asks, oh, can you move it a bit 15 minutes earlier? And you think, well, My lunch break will just be 30 minutes and that’s not enough to recharge, but I’m going to say yes anyway, because I just want to make sure I can book them in. 

    Anyway, you can see this slippery slope that we go down. Clients can’t argue with the computer system. If I can email you and say, well, that time doesn’t suit me. Is there anything else? Sure. But it’s a lot more rare, much more common that they will find something that works for them within what’s available. And now the benefit is basically just removing the back and forth. 

    When people can just say your calendar and booking, you’re not having all those back and forth emails. Can you do Tuesday? Can you do Monday? Can you do 4:00 PM? Can you do three 30? Like whatever that looks like in your business. I know for me, even when I was at a sole practitioner, I hated that. And when I had a bigger team, it became an absolute administrative nightmare. 

    All of that back and forth was just really, really tricky. And even things like rescheduling. So if somebody was canceling for their appointment and asking, do we have anything else available? We just literally would send them the calendar link for that. If that person and they could see maybe there’s one spot that week that’s opened up and they just have that option. They can book into that one spot or not, but that’s it. 

    One of the other great benefits of online bookings. Is, you can generally capture card details or at least take payment or a deposit for that appointment. That can really help you avoid having the need to have money conversations with someone, which I know can be very uncomfortable for many of us. So it keeps your cashflow good. 

    It keeps you in kind of in charge or in the seat of power and a sense of being able to claim the payment if necessary, when that comes up. Hopefully you’ve got great policies and procedures attached to all of this too. 

    But it also means that if, for example, you are a sole practitioner and you have a therapeutic relationship with someone. You don’t also have to feel that you’ve got that financial relationship with them as well. So your digital systems can take care of all that. And generally LinkedIn with all these online bookings are things like automated confirmation emails. Automated zoom link creations. And things like reminder emails, reminder messages. The more you can automate of all of that. 

    The more you’re going to have clarity for everyone. You’re not going to have as many no shows. You’re not going to have as many money pits or money leaks as well. So many benefits. So anyway, if that sounds like something you might need, have a chat to me. Try and get in with me for a one-on-one consultation if you need, but also do you really feel free to check out the Neurodivergent Business Collective, where I can provide some support, but also the other members can share what they’re doing. 

    We’ve got a slack channel where we share what we’re doing, ask questions, get guidance, things like that. So you almost certainly will not be alone in your question. And yeah, it’s something that we can definitely work together on there. 

    Okay. All of that. Exciting stuff. I love it. I could go on forever. I won’t, I actually do already have a whole webinar about this, but I will leave that to you. If you do want to check out the Neurodivergent Business Collective. You will have instant access to that. Link is in the show notes to check out the collective. 

    But even if you’re just listening, And I have given you a whole lot of things to think about. I want to give you a bit of a challenge over the next week. So a little bit of homework. Stay tuned. I hope it will change your life. In a really, really positive way. 

    I’m not just giving arbitrary tasks. So. I want you to pick one task in your business that you avoid you hate, or you ignore. Work out if it’s actually essential in your business. Can you delete it altogether? If you can go back to step one and pick a new task that does need to remain in your business. But it’s a really where the first question is. Can you just stop doing that thing? Anyway, if it’s essential. Put into your calendar, a block of 30 minutes to one hour. Anytime this week, sometime that’s going to suit you. Where you’re going to focus on implementing a more streamlined systematized or automated way of doing that thing. I really encourage you to treat yourself, go to a fancy cafe, get your favorite snack, or get a really fancy drink, whatever that is that helps you feel a little bit more motivating to do this kind of task, especially if it feels super boring to you. 

    What might also help is reminding yourself that in the future. You’re going to remove the need to be bored by that task. So you might just spend 30 minutes to an hour. Compiling the most common things that you write in emails and turning them into templates. You might spend 30 minutes to an hour testing out. Learning more about the platform that you already use. Or checking out acuity or Calendly or something like that. To play around and set up bookings where clients can book in with you. 

    Those are just a couple of examples. I’m sure you’ve got a few more ideas by now. And definitely if you are doing this challenge and you are part of the collective, please, please share in the slack channel. I’d love to hear what are you trying to implement? 

    And also, I really want to stop you getting stuck. Part of my mission there is that you don’t have to do all the trial and error that I did. I can help you shortcut that. So, if you share, you know, what that challenge is, what is the part of your business that you’re avoiding or you always break or you always ignore, or you just, do not like it. She had the systems you’re already using, and that’s something that we can work together and come up with some ideas, what you can put in place. 

    Once you’ve done all that enjoy that future that you built for yourself. So that annoying task is less onerous or it’s more streamlined. It’s more automated. It becomes kind of invisible to you. So that is my challenge to you. Now I did want to share something that I do with my digital setup. I’ll give you one example. Maybe two. 

    So it’s kind of a level up, but I use actually two different platforms. They’re kind of apps that automate and connect different other things together. One is called Zapier, Z A P I E R. That will be in the show notes. And the other one is called, make.com. It’s a really an Googleable word it’s just called make. 

    It’s not for everyone. It can be a lot simpler than I do. And, you know, I told you I have a special interest in this. So I’ve set this up over many, many years of tweaking and learning and I can create these automation workflows in my mind, in my sleep. And I would love to help you with yours. 

    I’m going to open up one of my Zapier zaps and what am I make scenarios and talk you through some of the automations that happen in my businesses. Let me share first a scenario, which is basically a whole sequence of different things that trigger other things to happen. I have this one set up in make.com. 

    So this is something I’ve got set up in both of my businesses. So when somebody buys one of my webinars, play learn chat, for example, what happens? Is the first trigger that sets all of this off. Is a payment comes through in my Stripe account. So that’s the online payment processing that happens. 

    The details of that transaction, then get sent to a Google spreadsheet, which is just one way that I like to keep a big overview of all the transactions that have gone on. And there’s a few details that kind of get searched within the spreadsheet. And then cross-checked, and there’s a few other details, steps in there, but basically the transaction gets added to the spreadsheet. 

    So it’s like, The person’s name, their email address. When the transaction happened, what they bought how much it was, what currency they paid all details like that go into the spreadsheet. 

    I also mentioned I use zero for accounting. So I’ve got an invoice that goes over to zero. Basically that transaction will generate an invoice within zero. As a few other steps there. So it will search for the contact. If it doesn’t exist or create the contact, it will create an invoice. It will apply the payment to the invoice. 

    I’ve done something really high level fancy, fancy, because I take different currencies. So in most cases you won’t need this and you can use much simpler tools, but I really wanted it a certain way. So I’ve set it up this way. So actually, any of you, the invoices that you receive from me in both of my businesses, It’s actually kind of like a fake duplicate of the zero invoice. So like my accounting system has the real record in Australian dollars. 

    And there’s a Google doc template that gets generated with the details based on the currency that the person paid and that cross checks to. A number in my zero account. And that is actually a Google docs. A PDF of that gets sent to the person who just bought it. That’s the invoice that you receive. That sounds so complex. So yeah, it’s actually, I’m looking at it now. It’s about 20 steps to get to that point. I’m just appreciating right now, as I’m looking, my system is way more complex that you need. I did want to say,  I didn’t share this at the start cause I don’t want to freak you out. 

    You can make it really simple. So. Other things that happen when somebody buys. So there’s a few other steps that person’s email gets sent to convert kit, which is where all of my like welcome emails and my weekly emails get sent out. So if that purchaser has selected that they do want to get my regular emails that will have a certain tag added. 

    They may, in some cases only purchase the things. So then they’re just going to get the welcome email that says here’s how you access your things. So they get a certain tag added, aligned with the thing that they bought. 

    I also use HubSpot CRM Which is basically my kind of like practice management software. So like client relationship management software. Again, it keeps a record of the sales and who’s bought what and that kind of thing. So a little bit of detail just goes over to that pretty much what they bought, what date and the name and email. I think the value as well. 

    And that’s pretty much what happens. Okay. So yeah, it’s built over many, many years, many steps, many trials and errors. That is pretty complicated, but the big picture of what happens in all of that is somebody buys a thing. I get a clear record in my spreadsheet of that transaction. There’s an invoice that goes out in my system and to the client. And they also get tagged to get the correct emails. Okay. That’s the short story. 

    Let me tell you another workflow that I use. So this is using Zapier. I won’t even bother going into the details of why he used two different platforms. Basically they have slightly different capabilities and pricing structures, so that’s it. If you want to talk to me more about it, you’re welcome. 

    So, if you are a member of the Neurodivergent Business Collective, this one applies to you. You have gone through this workflow and you don’t know it. Cause I think it’s all pretty much back end stuff. Yes. So, another platform that I use is click up. It’s my task management slash project management software and kind of the main communication tool that I use with my virtual assistants. 

    So I have a whole board in there with all the current members. Of the Neurodivergent Business Collective, I’ve got the past members. I’ve also got people if they do cancel and they’re kind of, they’ve got an end date. So like pending cancellation. I hope people never leave, but I also understand it’s completely fine. 

    So everyone pays month to month. And I also provide a link so that people can actually control their own membership. You don’t have to email and ask to cancel or to put it on hold. You can actually be in control of that yourself. That was really important to me. Knowing as a Neurodivergent person, myself, that it can be quite hard to email someone and say, I need a break from this community or whatever that is. 

    So I really hope that I give heaps and heaps of value and people do want to stay a long time, but it also make it quite easy to take a break if needed. Anyway. So each month a member payment comes out of their card. That triggers this workflow. If that transaction is about the collective. So it sort of looks for certain names about what type of transaction it is. So if they’re a member of the collective. Then this automation is going to search in the list of all the members to find that particular member. So the new found that member. It’s going to update how many months that person has been a member, how much money they’ve paid for the membership. 

    And so what that does is I can then at a glance, see who is a member who’s current, and also see, get, eventually get some numbers out when I can be bothered to look at the Berkeley. Things like, you know, average members per month and how long people are staying and all kinds of things like that. 

    So that one, hopefully is a lot more straightforward. It just has a few steps. But, when I’m setting any of these things up, I do think about what is it going to do in my life. Rather than just setting up a whole bunch of random steps, I’m going to think. Okay. What is important for me to know for this kind of thing? What is the data that was really important for me to know about my Neurodivergent Business Collective members. 

    I think in the future, I’ll really appreciate having great solid data. About how many months somebody has been a member. And at this stage I’m using it. And my virtual assistants are using it specifically when we’re emailing with a member. If there’s a question or something comes up. We can easily go into that list and just have a peep and see,  how long have they been in. You know, have they joined the slack channel, things like that. There’s a few little automations there as well. 

    It just helps us at a glance, see who we’re talking to and what the situation is. So. All of that’s to say, yeah, I really could talk about this all day. I will not. I am going to say. Let’s keep the conversation going, join us in the Neurodivergent Business Collective. If you’d like to. Especially, if you need more support to kind of know which direction to go with your automating and your streamlining. 

    Before I close out, I’m just going to share two more really awesome events. I’ve got coming up soon, which might be helpful for you. They’re open to anyone who can make it. The first one is in a couple of weeks. So it depends when you’re listening. If you’re listening, when this comes out, live. 

    I’ve got a, get it done day, which is all about content planning and content creation. And so the whole thing, it’s an online day on zoom. The whole setup for that is that we get together. It’s a small group thing. Maximum 16 participants. And I’ll walk you through steps to plan your content strategy. So you’re talking about like social media, podcasts, emails, things like that. So starting with strategy, creating some plans. 

    And then most of the days actually dedicated to action. So actually doing the creating of content. I hear from so many people, especially ADHD is, and I feel it myself. We have all the ideas and none of the implementing or not enough of the implementing time. So I’m really carving out this day so that we can actually get it done together, but you can also get feedback and support along the way. The spots may have sold out. I’m not sure by the time this comes out, please go and check the link in the show notes to the, get it done day, the content, get it done today. 

    And if you have missed out on a spot, there’ll be a waitlist thing there. You can also let me know if you are interested for future days like that, and I’ll keep you posted. The other incredible, one-off probably one off event that I’m doing quite soon is in Melbourne. That’s on  Saturday, the 22nd of June, 2024. I am running a all day workshop, physically IRL in real life in Melbourne. It is the aligned business workshop and spots are very limited for that. So again, check, if we do have space, you’ll be able to book in the date of that is the 22nd of June, 2022 in Melbourne Australia. That is for any Neurodivergent Business owner who is ready to go deeper, get reflective connect with each other, learn more about yourself and from each other. Find community it’s going to be a really amazing powerful day. I’ve run this online before, and it was incredible. 

    And like, I was almost in tears. It ended like watching everybody come out of this for these reflections of just how much it was powerful to hear from other Neurodivergent Business owners that we are not alone in our struggles, in our joys, in our dreams. It’s going to be amazing. Okay. So all the links will be in the show notes. Get in touch. 

    If you’ve got any questions and go forward and streamline and automate my friend. Good luck.

     Thank you so much for listening in. I hope that you’ve taken something helpful from today’s episode and please do share it with a fellow neurodivergent business owner friend. You can find me on Instagram @neurodivergent.business and all the links that I’ve talked about are in the show notes.

    Remember, your business can feel aligned and easy and it’s okay to do business 📍 differently. I’ll see you on the next episode.
