Women, Money & ADHD with Martha Lawton
What an episode! We’re joined by Martha, who talks to us about what it’s like managing money if you have ADHD.
She shares some of the strategies she uses to manager her finances, and gives some great insights to help us understand the challenges of dealing with money when you have ADHD.
The impulsivity of ADHD means it can show up in shopping, cooking, always going to the first solution. The first solution that pops in your head is going to be what feels easiest, such as using credit cards or not shopping around for better deals on insurance.
Be sure to listen to the end (especially you financial advisers that listen), as Martha shares how we can work better with clients with ADHD and we learn how to say the Women & Money Cafe in Japanese!
