New resources for parents of children with ADHD

According to the National Resource Center on ADHD. “Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a condition affecting children and adults that is characterized by problems with attention, impulsivity, and overactivity.  It affects between 5-8 percent of school age children, and between 2-4 percent of adults”.

For people who suffer ADHD, typical distractions can affect their lives more dramatically than those who don’t encounter this challenge. As a personal & professional organizer, I cross paths with people with ADHD often. I help people create systems in their homes so that their daily routines can become easier day by day. I value the benefits of an organized day and keeping the stress away, because without these systems, daily life can be very difficult.

Meet-Up group in Chicago formed; December 2012, for parents of children with ADHD. This parent support group will not only share their personal experience but also schedule professionals to speak. They will educate and provide resources on how to manage those challenges.  For more information on the support group please contact their group’s organizer: Maggi Steib via this link.

Creating a sustainable business starts by getting organized.

The first few things that come to mind when someone owns a business is how to create cash flow, or how to maintain a loyal client base. How to get everything done before the day is done. Small businesses rarely have the opportunity to look beyond and analyze one’s methods of operation. Nor does one wonder what habits they can build upon? Creating a sustainable business appears for some to be something a bit beyond their reach. However, At Mercury Organizing Professionals, we don’t think so, we work as a personal organizing coach to show you how to use simple techniques that prove beneficial to grow your business.

How can being a sustainable business help grow my business? Let’s determine what defines a “Sustainable Business”.  Sustainability means different things to different people but in most cases its a strategy that looks for ways to optimize the effectiveness and quality of one’s social and physical environment, with the benefit of a long term profitability.

When we work with a small business or individual; sustainability is on the top of our minds.  Every client has different needs and priorities at the moment. so putting their needs into consideration while we project manage the organizing is vital. Consciously choosing to work and live in a sustainable way helps you gain the focus you need to accomplish your goals in less amount of time.

Are you wasting energy? Are you buying things over and over just because you can’t find them? Are you piling paperwork and can’t find important documents? Ask yourself what perpetual habit causes you to create clutter or to become overwhelmed with excessive non-core tasks? Its what you do in the first place that takes you to a level of conscientious choosing. Creating a sustainable business means you value the process as well as the result.
