157: Help With Organizing with Nikki Kinzer and Pete Wright

I’m joined on this episode of ADHD reWired by Nikki Kinzer and Pete Wright from Taking Control: The ADHD Podcast.

This Week’s Episode:

I’d like to thank Nikki Kinzer and Pete Wright for coming on the podcast this week. I’d also like to thank Nikki and Pete for having me on their show.  This episode was recorded live on Facebook.  If you’d like to be notified of future live Facebook broadcasts, like our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/ADHDreWired/.

Nikki Kinzer is a blogger, online course creator, professional and certified ADHD coach, and co-host of the Taking Control Podcast.  Pete Wright is Nikki’s co-host.  In addition to a broadcaster, storyteller, photographer, and tech geek.  Nikki and Pete have been co-hosting together since 2010.

I think you will enjoy this lively and resource-packed discussion.  We start the conversation off by Nikki and Pete sharing their professional backgrounds, both as individuals and as a team.  You are going to learn about a lot of resources in this discussion.  Pete and I also share how we use some of these resources and give you tips on how to get the most out of them.  Later in the discussion, Nikki talks about organizing and she shares some techniques you can use to help get organized.
