438 | ADHD Money Talk with David DeWitt

In this episode, Eric is joined by David DeWitt, a registered investment advisor and podcaster who helps adults with ADHD take back control of their money! He’s been a registered investment advisor for six years, but it wasn’t until his ADHD “awakening” early in 2021 that he realized he wanted to work with others with ADHD. 

David knows from experience that effective personal finance when you have ADHD is hard, even when you are a trained professional!  After discovering his ADHD, he set out to build a financial planning model that works for ADHD brains – first testing it on himself, and now, he is on a mission to help as many ADHDers as he can! 

Eric and David address the shame we can feel around our finances, why people reach out to David about their finances, and where to begin when planning for the future.  Then, Eric and David discuss using our values to help guide our financial planning, how to get past the mental clutter when facing our finances, and ways to stay consistent with financial management.  

You’ll also hear some strategies for tackling debt against spending, why “budget” is a “dirty’ word, the importance of filing your taxes on time,  and a glimpse into investing.
