I am so excited I just had to share this. Zoe Kessler, a writer on Psych Central blog has written an article about my book here: http://blogs.psychcentral.com/adhd-zoe/2012/04/solo-adhd-business-owner-get-paid-to-pay-attention/.
She wrote, “Strong’s book actually made me feel optimistic that I’d be able to overcome the typical ADHD bugaboos and lessen their stranglehold over my own productivity. Knowledge is, after all, power.” Knowing that others are benefiting from reading my book makes my whole book writing/publishing journey worthwhile.
Zoe is also going to use my Action Planner for a week to prove she can be more productive. Then she’ll blog about how she did and I will send her a posting commenting on her use of the Action Planner and give her ideas and suggestions on how to improve.

Are you paying attention to ALL parts of your business?
To that pile of unread mail? To stickies stuck everywhere? To the phone messages? To the list of sales calls you have to make?
When you STOP paying attention to the parts of the business you don’t like, you are neglecting your business and damaging your chances for success. That neglect is called Business Attention Deficit Disorder or Business A.D.D..
As a solopreneur, paying attention to the parts of the business you don’t like (I call it the ‘ugly work’), can be difficult. You know, the stuff you look at and your stomach immediately starts churning, you self talk says, “No way, you’re not going to do THIS right now” and you bury the note or the paper so you don’t have to be reminded of it.
How can you stop your self-talk from talking you out of doing the ugly work? In the book, “Getting Paid to Pay Attention”, you’ll learn three quick and easy action steps you can take to learn how to get through the ‘ugly work’.
You choose which of the three action steps YOU want, take anywhere from 30 seconds to 3 minutes to implement it and you’re on your way to getting the ‘ugly work’ done.
Imagine how you’ll feel when the butterflies leave your stomach, your self talk turns itself off and you have energy to go back to working on the other parts of your business!
Learning to pay attention to all parts of your business, including the ‘ugly work’ is what will make you a successful business owner!
Here’s to your success!
PS if you decide to purchase the e-book, Getting Paid to Pay Attention, for a limited time you’ll also receive the Action Planner as a bonus! It’s normally $19.95 and it’s yours free when you purchase Getting Paid to Pay Attention.
