Recently my wife asked me why I decided to start the blog Adult ADD and Money. The truth is that I found this question a bit challenging, it frustrated me that I did not have a quick answer as to why I started this blog. I think what inspired me to start this blog was talking to people with ADD who were discouraged because they had issues with money management. Their poor money management issues not only affected their finances, it also affected their emotional well being.
The reason why I started the blog is because I wanted to help ADD adults by offering tips and strategies to deal with the additional challenges that ADD adults face with managing money. The main lessons that I want to share with my readers are:
Money management and life skills go hand in hand, and working on improving life skills will help you with managing your money
Everyone makes poor money management decisions from time to time, nobody makes perfect money management decisions, the key is the ability to learn from your mistakes.
You can only control your current decisions with managing money, forgive yourself for past decisions and focus on what you can do today.
