The National Association of Professional Organizers (NAPO) and Institute for Challenging Disorganization are important sister organizations of the ACO. Thank you to Denslow, Cameron, Laurie, and to all our organizer/coaches for helping build the bridge and strengthen the relationship between ADHD coaching and professional organizing.

Reaching clients through YouTube

Linda and Neil Swanson, founders and coaches at Free to Be Coaching, have just launched a YouTube Channel called “ADHD Hints” from Free to Be Coaching. Linda writes:

Free To Be Coaching, LLC, consists of my husband Neil and myself. Both of us are ADHD coaches, ACC, and ADDCA graduates. Neil was diagnosed with ADHD at age 60 after we’d been married 35 years – and for the past several years we have been building an ADHD coaching business together. Our idea for the YouTube channel is to offer very short video messages in which we share information and resources and possible strategies that folks with ADHD can easily access by video or even just the audio. We hope the brief video format is a good one for folks with ADHD, and we encourage people to subscribe to the channel. Subscribers receive an email every time a new video is posted, and we post new videos one or two times a week. So far we have posted 13 videos.
