I’ve been in business for myself since 1990.
I started as a desktop publisher (a term that is now obsolete) and today I’m an ADHD coach and retreat facilitator for women and couples. In between I was a writer, ad agency owner, marketing guru, real estate magazine editor and a few other miscellaneous roles.
It’s been exhausting, exhilarating, tedious, fascinating, challenging, boring, freeing, stifling, profitable, unprofitable, lonely, social – you get the picture. It’s been a roller coaster ride.
I know that some of the ups and downs were due to my ADHD. I don’t like to be boxed in, so my imagination runs wild. I have lots of good ideas. Too many good ideas, in fact.
When my good ideas clash with my time management issues and my deadlines and the need for strategic planning and balancing the budget and payroll taxes, well, it’s a problem.
I admit it. I struggle. Sometimes I want to chuck it all and do something else. But then life shifts, my ideas start rolling again and I love my business!
Tell me I’m not the only entrepreneur out there who feels like this – am I?
What entrepreneurs need most is someone who can bounce ideas around, offer a shoulder when things collapse and hold our feet to the proverbial fire. That’s exactly what the ADDiva Master Mind does.
Recently, I facilitated a business MasterMind with ADHD adults for ADDA. It went so well that I decided to bring my format to the ADDivas.
Small group, accountability, support, privacy
This ADDiva MasterMind – dubbed ADDiva Biz – will meet once a week for seven weeks, then take a week off. Each week we’ll tackle a new business topic but there will be plenty of time for check-ins, assistance with tricky challenges and a weekly Hot Seat for an in-depth look at one member’s business (with non-judgmental support).
We accept only one kind of business into each group so you can speak openly without worry about competitors. We honor your privacy 100%.

Why am I qualified?
I have spent thousands of dollars on coaching, training and tools to make my business successful. I was named the Small Business Person of the Year by my local chamber of commerce. And I have grossed nearly half a million dollars in annual revenue. I do know my stuff.
Who should join?
If you have been in business for several years, this is a perfect place to re-energize. If you’re a solopreneeur, the mastermind is a welcome relief from the isolation of working along. And if you’re just getting started, what an education you’ll get from the rest of us !
How much does it cost?
Ah, the “most important question” But is it really the most important question? Of course, you need some cash flow, but if you think of this as a “price” you don’t have your entrepreneurial hat on. ADDiva Biz is a coaching program for your business. It is considered a training expense and is almost always deductible.
OK, but really, what’s the price?
The price for seven weeks of structured business support is $397 which includes 24/7 accountability and group coaching with Linda. The mastermind renews every eight weeks and you can continue or stop at the end of any ADDiva Biz term.
