Kit Cassingham: “The B&B Lady”

I love the hospitality industry! You will, too, especially if you have ADD. My time as a B&B innkeeper, broker, and consultant was exhilarating. As I’ve learned more about ADD I’ve come to recognize that my ADD-strengths came perfectly into play as an innkeeper. Multitasking, creative, enthusiastic, being attentive to the little details, and taking care of people. The structured environment, social connections, and busy schedule all supported my strengths.

Most entrepreneurs have ADD/ADHD. Innkeepers are entrepreneurs. It holds that most innkeepers have ADD. That means you have strengths — superpowers, if you will — that will help you create and run a successful inn, if you also learn to manage your weakness. All of this is where I come in.

I’m a High Performance Coach. I help entrepreneurs with ADD focus their strengths and clear their hurdles so they can stop struggling and thrive. I especially love working with those in the hospitality industry. I coach owners and managers of independent, boutique hotels (small lodging properties, if you prefer) to help them embrace their ADD gifts and step into their power.
