My first post and building in public - for real this time.

"Remember that one time you wanted to start a pop-up coffee bar, you even arranged the chairs, well the rest never happened hahaha".

I'm somewhat of a running joke in my family, the guy with 100s of ideas that never become a reality. Small business ideas, large business ideas, apps, communities, voluntary projects - the list goes on and on.

I call it the ADHD curse and there I have the problem I want to solve. My own most crippling problem. It's common across ADHD-ers to have many ideas, but never to follow through. We get distracted and end up demotivated or chasing other ideas.

My goal is to help aspiring ADHD entrepreneurs get started and follow through. To do this I will start a newsletter with inspiring stories, coping strategies, and actionable advice from ADHD entrepreneurs designed to empower others on their entrepreneurial journey.

This is my very first step in sharing my journey.
Next step: validating my idea. Wish me hard work and some luck!

    Good luck! I'm also just starting out on building my Saas, I'll admit its really overwhelming but discipline is key. We got this!

    I'm definitely in your ICP. You picked a tough crowd - respect!

    If you do it in a way that helps us keep focused on the emails and engaged to read enough of them, it would be a job well done.

    I'll sign up :)

      Awesome! Would you be willing to provide feedback as to whether it keeps you engaged and how it could keep you more engaged?

      1. 1

        Absolutely, as best I can. I'm always willing to give honest and direct feedback. :)

    I can so relate. Both in terms of various ideas and things I’d like to do. But not really accomplishing anything. I too have started a newsletter to address my pain point and to help others in a similar situation.

    If your interested we can help promote each other. I’m all for helping others especially ones I resonate with. My newsletter if your interested (a work in progress) is: https://unboundcuriosity.beehiiv.com/

      I'm definitely up for that! I subscribed and let’s keep in touch.

      Or was it some quirky grammar/English mistake :-).
