In this episode, Rick Webster returns to the show! Rick is an expert in real-estate and entrepreneurship. He also has ADHD expertise. He’s had many roles in the financial and real estate worlds, but in the past few years, he has shifted his focus to helping those with ADHD have better peace and “cents”.

Rick is the CEO of Rena-Fi and brings vision, passion, and perspective to an area of his life that he considers fundamental: Personal Money Management. His motto was “It’s more than business, it’s personal .”
Eric and Rick share their stories about the ADHD tax and the larger umbrella it covers, the effects chronic long-term stress can have on your self-talk, self-identity, how to change your self-talk to achieve goals, the challenges that may arise when you develop financial habits, and the shame we might feel about our financial decisions. They also discuss forgiveness.

Eric and Rick then discuss behavioral finance. They talk about why money management doesn’t have to be about willpower. The impact of looking upstream and creating reminders and cues. And how saying “no” can improve performance.

Eric and Rick will talk about maintenance costs, homeownership costs, planning for future maintenance and the main reasons the ADHD tax is still happening.

This episode also features other ADHD-tax stories:

“I have paid the ADHD Tax so many times. I would love to hear about budgeting tools that are simple and easy. Many budgeting books are too complicated.” “I don’t have the time to pay a speeding ticket and my license was suspended. Pulled over and arrested for driving on a suspended license. After the speeding ticket, I was charged with additional charges, including a lawyer and speeding tickets. I pay the ADHD tax every single day. Late-fees, rebuying items I don’t have, spending impulsively and paying for things I don’t use because I didn’t cancel them or forget to return them in the time. I ordered expedited shipping because my order wasn’t on-time. I also ordered take-out because it was too late to prepare dinner. How can I get triggered to think through things at a time when I can follow-through in a way that allows me to avoid the ADHD Tax?” “I have paid the ADHD tax for rush-orders. I have spent more money on costly repairs to my cars/yard equipment/house appliances than the preventative maintenance that would have prevented the damage. Because my insurance has expired or I didn’t send in reimbursement forms, I have had to pay out-of-pocket for my medication. How can I find out what preventative maintenance tasks my expensive or large items (often appliances) require? Many of these tasks I feel I should do myself. “Hacking your ADHD” by Rick Webster: Would I be paying ADHD tax if I paid people to do some of the easier tasks for my appliances?
