Episode Description

Have you forgotten to pay a bill and incurred a hefty late fee? Visited a sporting goods shop to buy sneakers and walked out with a kayak? Blown up a budget and plunged into debt? Bought items, misplaced them, and bought them again? Wasted money on therapies or products that promise to cure symptoms of ADHD like the impulsivity that got you to buy another unproven wonder cure?

ADHD — and its accompanying weak organization skills, memory problems, and impulsivity — can create financial obstacles and punishments. To change destructive patterns of spending, you must first understand the psychology and neurobiology that drives some of these behaviors, create awareness, and set up support structures to stay on track.

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • What the ADHD Tax includes
  • How emotions underlie spending decisions
  • How to create a budget that individuals and couples will find liberating
  • Other strategies to rein in spending and pay bills on time
  • Why coupons and other discounts are a ruse
  • How to thwart impulsive buys and create a scaffolding of support
