ADHD or with the word Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.

My ADHD Superpowers That Got Me Into Business

Introduction

Starting a business is never a walk in the park. But when you’re fuelled by a mind that never stops churning out ideas and is always buzzing with energy, it’s a different story. I am Sean, the founder of Apex Web Design, and today, I’d like to share a more personal narrative—a behind-the-scenes look at how my ADHD not only led me to start this venture but also endowed me with ‘cognitive superpowers’ that contribute to my success in the web design industry.

The Trigger: ADHD

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is often mischaracterised as a hindrance. However, I’ve found that my ADHD has acted as a catalyst in my entrepreneurial journey. The same traits that made traditional 9-to-5 jobs an arduous endeavour for me—like restlessness and a lack of focus on monotonous tasks—became the driving forces behind the inception of Apex Web Design.

Hyperfocus: An Eye for Detail

Many people with ADHD experience episodes of ‘hyperfocus,’ where we become deeply engrossed in activities that interest us. For me, this means an intense level of concentration when I’m designing websites. I can easily spend hours perfecting a single element, making sure that everything from the layout to the user experience is immaculate.

Quick Thinking: Harnessing the Mind’s RPM

ADHD minds are often likened to Ferraris—high performance but hard to control. This quick thinking allows me to assess situations swiftly and come up with creative solutions almost instantaneously. In the web design field, where trends and customer preferences change at the drop of a hat, this ability is invaluable.

Spontaneity: Breeding Innovation

ADHD-fuelled spontaneity has been a boon in my entrepreneurial journey. Being spontaneous keeps me open to new experiences and helps me step out of my comfort zone. This is particularly beneficial in the ever-evolving world of web design, where being able to adapt and innovate is key to staying ahead of the curve.

The Birth of Apex Web Design

With these cognitive superpowers, I felt compelled to establish a platform where they could truly shine. Apex Web Design was born out of a desire to create, innovate, and push the boundaries of what is possible in web design, all while embracing the ADHD traits that make me unique.

Conclusion

While society often views ADHD as a disorder that needs to be ‘managed,’ I consider it an integral part of my identity and a cornerstone of my business’s success. From enabling hyperfocus to nurturing quick thinking and spontaneity, ADHD has been less of an obstacle and more of an advantage for me in the realm of web design. So, here’s to embracing our cognitive differences and leveraging them to create something extraordinary.
