    I ordered ADD & loving it along with ADD & Mastering it.
    What I’m finding is that much of the general population doesn’t know the real scoop about ADHD. They learn what they hear many times from people with a wide range of myths. When people learn the facts about what this diagnosis is, it helps dispel the fear and negativity that goes along with it. ADHD is a very serious condition, though it has it’s perks. I can’t imagine educating anyone better about the facts than information given with honesty and hilarity by those associated with Totally A.D.D. Their books and DVD’s are ones I’ll absolutely share with friends and family because they’re truly enlightening and entertaining. Thank you all for reaching out and presenting such an important topic to others in such a fun way.

    ADD & Mastering It.

    You can read all 36 strategies discussed in this video in a free Cheat Sheet on Who doesn’ t like free?

    As I read the Cheat Sheat, some tips were familar, others were described in a new way, and some were new.

    Like a serious student, I worked hard to memorize the list. Repeat it aloud, write it down, put the ideas on my own words, … but how was I to go from learning to doing?

    I found my answer by purchasing the downloadable copy of the video. These 36 ideas are presented visually, verbally and augmented with humorous, unforgettable skits

    The next day I found myself recalling these strategies and putting them into use.

    Seeing is remembering, and remembering is half the battle.

    I like to define myself by something I read years ago: I have full sixpack without the plastic thingie to hold it all together. This DVD is a great help in learning how to keep it all together.

  5. Rated 5 out of 5


    Loved the Video. It’s a video I can’ easily follow. It took my a while though to watch it, and I’m going to have to watch it again. I can’t remember lots of what they said. It was really good though. Best one though was Chunk it Down. Chunk IT. (hahahha my review completely sounds ADD)

  6. Rated 5 out of 5


    It’s so heartening to watch this video. If you could, you’d want each one of these experts personally in your corner. But how to find the time to work with all of them? Easy, just watch this and you’ll be well on your way to helping yourself. And when you’re ready to get “outside” help, like a coach, you’ll have an idea what to look for in one. The bonus videos are like a highlighter pen. They’re the perfect desert at the end of a great meal. Very inspiring and hope generating! I’m off to look for a coach… Thanks, TotallyADD!
