46: 5 Qualities You Need In Others as an ADHD entrepreneur

ADHD entrepreneur - here are the qualities you need to seek in your business 'comrades'!

Welcome back to another episode of The Weeniecast - the podcast for ADHD entrepreneurs seeking business strategies. I'm your host Katie McManus and in this week's episode I’m reflecting on my own entrepreneurial journey and sharing the five key qualities I look for in others as an ADHD entrepreneur. 

Without wishing to make it sound like we're filling in a dating app shopping list, it's really important to make sure you're always right swiping on the people who lift you, not hold you back.

From genuine passion for their work to a strong focus on impact and creative problem-solving, these qualities are essential for building a supportive and thriving business network. 

But that's not all – I’m also going to talk about setting boundaries and valuing your own worth as a professional. 

How to surround yourself with individuals who understand the value of mutually beneficial transactions and are not afraid to ask, "What's in it for me?"

We’ll also look into why being asked to work for free is an absolute nope and why you need to walk away from people who think it’s OK to do that!

Qualities to Look for as an ADHD Entrepreneur

Ok, so there are a few qualities that are important for building a successful business and maintaining motivation. 

I just want to name that it's crucial to surround yourself with people who genuinely love what they do and are passionate about their work. 

And I mean obsessively, fandom creating-ly passionate!

Money shouldn't be the sole measure of success; instead, it's important they, and you, focus on the impact you have on clients and the world.

Being resourceful and having a can-do attitude is also essential for overcoming challenges.

It's also hella important to surround yourself with supportive individuals in your industry and those who are comfortable with transactional relationships!

Overcoming Challenges and Being Resourceful

Surrounding yourself with peeps who are always being resourceful and having a 'can do' spirit is crucial in entrepreneurship. 

And especially so when you have ADHD!

Rather than giving up when faced with obstacles, successful entrepreneurs see challenges as opportunities to tap into their creativity and network.

And if they're really smart, that network includes you!

They find ways around the walls and barriers and maintain an optimistic mindset.

Surrounding yourself with individuals who have this problem-solving mentality can greatly benefit your own entrepreneurial journey.
