Among entrepreneurs, a quarter are estimated to have a disability or neurodivergence. There are many potential reasons for this - entrepreneurship offers freedom from the confines of neurotypical expectations and arbitrary barriers to success. It also provides the creativity and scope to explore your mind's full potential and let loose on that hyperfocus and hypercognition that often come with neurodivergence.
While entrepreneurship offers freedom, opportunity, and flexibility for the neurospicy, it can be a double-edged sword, bringing with it the intricacies of business management. It's easy to get lost in ideas and miss important details. It's easy to get stuck in loops of thought that are hard to break free from. And it's easy to lose focus on what's essential or less rewarding and fall behind in certain areas.

How a VA Could Help You as a Neurodivergent Entrepreneur
Here at Positive Virtual Assistants, we champion neurodivergent entrepreneurs. We're not your average VA service. We're invested in creating an environment where everyone drives in their own lane.
You free up time by delegating tasks you feel are outside of your core competencies. You can focus on what matters most to your business and enjoy the freedom that comes from being able to delegate tasks.
Planning and Processes
A VA can help you with planning and processes - so don't worry if you need help knowing where to start in passing over tasks like book-keeping, record-keeping or administrative tasks. Planning is a default skill for a VA. We've seen it all before.
Communication can be another challenge for ASD/ADHD/Dyslexic business people. A VA can help you manage and compose emails, respond to letters or other communication, field your phone calls and engage on social media. As VAs, we can take your words and build clarity, vision and understanding - helping you thrive in a world of information overload.
Finance management is often an area where neurodivergent business owners need extra support, and we understand that simply "getting an accountant" can seem overwhelming when the systems aren't in place and the finances are a mess. A good VA can help you get your books in order, track your expenses and cash flow, and identify areas for growth and improvement. This can even be preparation work for a more formal partnership with an accountant. We understand that you might not be able to engage with one right now.
