Today we continue our discussion on the ADHD Tax! I will not only give you examples this time, but some tried and true methods to help you navigate your way through dealing with this diagnosis.

Join me as I dive deeper into ADHD and the specific time management tips that I am using to keep myself focused and on task.  I will also go into the differences between being neurotypical and neurodivergent and why knowing what you are can help you with your time management. 


Are you someone that has ADHD? Or do you suspect that you might have ADHD? I will discuss the unique way that I was diagnosed with ADHD and how this diagnosis has helped me understand myself better. How ADHD is directly related to the way someone runs their business and the way we react to situations and relationships in our lives.

Meet Alisha


After an initial focus on literary arts, Alisha became enraptured by an author’s ability to spin words to life on paper, inspiring her to obtain a BA in English/ Art and MA in Secondary Education. With her own narrative still in development, Alisha focused on the art of storytelling - using both pen and paper and a camera and darkroom. Over the last decade, Alisha has used these mediums to capture stories most notably as an award winning photographer. 

Curator of beautiful stories, vintage clothing and french antiques. She and her husband Patrick have been married for seventeen years. They share three little ones, two cats and one dog in Mountain Brook, AL. 

“Here’s the thing: The book that will most change your life is the one you write.”

Alisha is currently writing her first book - a memoir reconciling the brokenness and beauty of a childhood dictated by intergenerational trauma.
