Who is your ADHD Big Brother?
My name is Russ. I have adult ADHD. Nice to meet you!
I say adult ADHD because I didn't learn about my own ADHD until much later in life, after a series of life-changing events - not the good kind. I came to realize that there was something very specific going on, and that was my wonderfully sucktastic adult ADHD! Great!*
I am not in the "I love my ADHD" camp. I'm not excited about having it and I don't think it's a superpower. If ADHD is a gift, then where's the gift receipt, because I would return it in a millisecond. I'm officially diagnosed as ADHD: predominantly inattentive presentation.
You are most likely here because you are interested in working with me and you'd like to know exactly who you are throwing your money at. My personal mission with ADHD Big Brother is to simplify the complicated aspects of this self-regulation disorder. I'm an educator at heart, and an entertainer by nature. I cannot stress how important I think it is to laugh. In my 20s I spent over a decade doing sketch comedy, stand up comedy, and acting in commercials (I could play an idiot office guy like no other!)
I'm now in my 40s, and my late-in-life diagnosis explained so much! I feel that my ability to overcome my symptoms was a mix of both luck, and one of my areas of hyper-focus tends to be in the self-help world. I have studied it all, tried it all, and I know what does and doesn't work for people like us.
The clients I work with are typically those who are feeling stuck with their ADHD, and who are struggling to see the way out. My expertise is in helping to connect clients to their inner purpose, and in providing empathy, support - in the form of unique tools and structures tailored to the individual - , and daily accountability as they learn the process of doing this on their own. Prior to my ADHD specific work, I helped clients with such goals as weight loss, writing, organizing, and family life. To learn more about this process, visit my Nudge Program.
Outside of this passion, I spend the rest of my time with my two sons. We hike, we golf, we board games, and we are phenomenal at playing video games together. An ADHD dad who loves video games? That is so rare!**
Russ Jones is one of the funniest and most impactful people I've ever met. He has helped me progress further toward achieving my goal of writing a book than I have achieved in the past ten years!
Russ breaks down his own personal experiences with humor and thoughtfulness helping you gain insight into removing your own barriers and achieving your goals. His methods are so easy to follow and he truly cares about helping you through your own journey.
Russ's perspective and approach are extremely manageable. Many of us have goals and dreams/ways-of-life we want for ourselves but we don't know how to start. We pre-judge whether or not we're capable or worthy of these goals and dreams. Working with Russ, I realized that I am worthy and what I want for my life is completely attainable.
