How to Thrive in Business with These Productivity Tips
As a fellow entrepreneur, I understand how challenging it can be to balance your work and personal life while also dealing with the unique challenges that come with being neurodivergent. Fortunately, there are many strategies and productivity tips that have been proven to work for people like us. 

Here are some of my top recommendations:
1. Embrace Your Strengths: whether you have ADHD, dyslexia, or another neurodivergent condition, it's important to recognize your strengths and build upon them. For example, if you are highly creative or excel at visual thinking, find ways to incorporate these skills into your work and use them to your advantage.

2. Set Clear Goals & Expectations: establishing clear, achievable goals is crucial for anyone looking to boost their productivity. Be sure to break down larger goals into specific, smaller tasks to make them more manageable.

3. Manage Distractions: distractions can be a major challenge for neurodivergent entrepreneurs, so it's important to find strategies that work for you. This might include using noise-cancelling headphones, setting specific times for checking email or social media, or using apps that block distracting websites.

4. Prioritize Self-Care: taking care of yourself is critical for maintaining high levels of productivity and managing any accompanying stress or anxiety. Make sure to prioritize sleep, movement, and down time to recharge your batteries.

5. Find Support: finally, don't hesitate to seek out support from other entrepreneurs who understand the unique challenges you face. Joining neurodivergent entrepreneur groups or working with a coach or mentor can provide the encouragement and accountability you need to stay on track.

Remember, being neurodivergent doesn't need to hold you back in business. By implementing these productivity tips, you can achieve your goals and build a successful business.

5 Reasons Why Every Business Owner Needs a Task Management System

5 Reasons Why Every Business Owner Needs a Task Management System
As a neurodivergent business owner, you have a lot on your plate. I mean more than the typical plate. You manage deadlines, deliverables, team members, and clients, all while juggling a ton of tasks. It is definitely hard to keep track of everything! Sometimes, leading to missed deadlines, frustrated clients, and decreased productivity. One way to minimize these problems is by using a task management system. 

Here are some reasons why:

1. Increased Organization and Productivity: A task management system allows you to organize your tasks and prioritize them based on their deadlines and importance. You can break down larger projects into smaller tasks, assign them to team members, and track their progress. You can also set reminders and deadlines to stay on track and work through procrastination.

2. Improved Collaboration: If you work with a team, a task management system can improve collaboration. You can assign tasks to team members, set deadlines, and track progress all in one place. You can also communicate within the system, ask questions, and share files. This can lead to fewer miscommunications and a more productive team.

3. Better Time Management: With a task management system, you can see all your tasks in one place and prioritize them based on their importance and deadlines. This can help you manage your time more effectively and avoid spending too much time on less important tasks. You may need a support human for this if this is something that stops you in your tracks or overwhelms you.

4. Reduced Stress: When you have a lot of tasks to complete, it can be overwhelming and stressful. A task management system can reduce this stress by helping you stay organized, prioritize tasks, and track progress. You can rest easy knowing that nothing will fall through the cracks.

5. Improved Accountability: A task management system can also improve accountability. You can assign tasks to team members and track their progress. This can help ensure that everyone is on the same page and completing their tasks on time. And there's you too. Snoozing those tasks, yea, it keeps a record.

Overall, using a task management system can save you time, improve collaboration, reduce stress, and improve productivity. With all the benefits it provides, it's no wonder many successful neurodivergent business owners rely on these systems to stay on top of their tasks.

Why Do You Need a Task Management System?

Task management is an important aspect to being successful and not falling behind in a mountain of things to do. Now it’s not magic, but you can most certainly boost your productivity and save some sanity by having a task management system.

There are many components that go into setting up a task management system that works and you need to remember to use. We LOVE the dopamine that comes with trying new things, but when it wears off, then we forget to use the system most times. That’s a lot of time and potentially money that could go to waste and we certainly don’t want that.

So WHY do I need a task management system because I know you all love specifics!
1) a central location to keep all your thoughts so your brain doesn’t have to work so hard
2) a plan of action to start your day even if it goes up in flames (there’s always tomorrow)
3) a way to work toward your goals
4) keep all the things organized
5) can add support to your business with ease
6) saves you countless hours of searching for all the things

I have a solution if you keep reading. I know it’s long, but I’ll wrap it up shortly!

My favorite part about this streamlined task management system I’ve created for my business is that I’ve put together a course that walks you through how to set one up yourself!



What you walk away with besides your sanity in the morning when you're figuring out what needs done for the day or even the week:
1) Daily/Weekly Planner that integrates email, project management, and more!
2) Project Management System
3) What to do on low energy days
4) How to get the things out of your brain and onto paper and beyond
5) How to set goals that work for your brain

Now, this can certainly be simplified and put together quickly so you get all the dopamine you desire! Yes, this course is set up to do ONE lesson a day PLUS implement so if you follow that schedule, you will have a system set up in ONE WEEK!

Grab this course for a one-time investment, work through it at your own pace, and get support from Karalee along the way if you desire!

Dealing with Notification Overload

Notifications are all over the place. I’m sure you wake up to a bunch every morning from socials, to DMs, to emails, and texts or calls. It’s an incredibly overwhelming state to wake up to at times. You may simply find yourself needing to get rid of the notification asap because it drives you insane! Maybe you even feel glued to your phone or computer because you’re terrified of not replying immediately.

Any of these sound like you?

You cannot be glued to your phone or computer. You simply need to also live life and implement boundaries for yourself and everyone else.

I did an experiment last year. My phone was getting a bunch of spam calls and it was driving me insane so I had to put my phone on silent. My mind thought I was missing all the things because I had instilled in myself that the phone was priority and that once it went off, I had to get it.

I found myself checking my phone even more than before because I didn’t want to miss calls and texts etc. It took a few weeks of my phone on silent 24/7 to get used to being ok with not knowing as soon as something came in.

Side note: alarms still go off if you are concerned about that!

I also implement turning my phone over, the phone’s assistant, and using alarms and timers. You will feel “out of control” for a bit, but after you get used to it, you’ve built the habit and your mind is on board, it’s actually peaceful. I get to choose when I’m interrupted with notifications instead of on demand.

Create slots in your day where you check your phone, emails, DMs, etc so they don’t pile up, but also create the peace that comes with that choice.

Some ways to lessen the amount of notifications
1. leave groups on Facebook that no longer serve you
2. turn off notifications in groups if you want to stay in there but decide when to interact
3. unfollow or delete friends you don’t like seeing content from or are toxic. [or snooze them for 30 days to test it out]
4. leave group messages that don’t serve you
5. check them at routine times throughout the day to avoid build up

And for those of you that get notification overwhelm really fast, this is a great way to not let those get out of hand too!

Plus you’re able to remain focused longer [hopefully] when you’re not being bombarded with notifications that either overwhelm you or you want to answer right away. If you’re a hopefully, grab my top focus tips! CLICK HERE.
