Are you distracted, disorganized, and unable to Focus? Your Job could be on the line…Save It Now!
Those struggling with ADHD are 60% more likely to lose their jobs.

And here is the bigger issue: 85-90% of adult workers don’t even know that they are actually struggling with undiagnosed symptoms. Maybe you realize that you are unfocused, easily distracted, and often completely lost with regard to time management and organizing, yet you aren't aware that there are real solutions to those issues.

ADHD affects 4.4% of adults, making it one of the most common mental disorders in North America, and yet many don’t even acknowledge it being a real problem. While it’s not life-threatening, it can most certainly be life-debilitating.

Is this you???
“I need help. I’m on probation at my job. My boss said I have to become better at organizing, following through on my commitments, and getting to work on time or I’m going to be fired. I’ve had these problems my whole life, but they are even worse now. I’m always being told I’m lazy and a slob, but I don’t want to be. I think I may have ADD.”

Are you being written up at work for varous ‘behavioral problems?’ Well, those with ADHD are being ‘disciplined’ at the office by a factor of 18 over other employees.

Productivity is at a deficit by one month of time per year, according to a 2006 study by the World Health Organization. That means that, on average, 4.5 weeks of work time, or 180 hours a year is lost due to inefficiency! If you are that employee, and are earning even $30 per hour, the company is losing over $5,000 annually.

ADHD is often ignored, and not even acknowledged by many employers. Ignoring ADHD symptoms of poor follow through, disorganization, poor communication, lack of prioritizing, strategizing, sequencing, and decision-making can cost the company you work for money.

So, if your employer must constantly be handling the fallout because you haven’t learned to accommodate these issues, then they may end up losing money – and you may wind up losing your job...
