Other Bits:

 

1.  Your course enrollment includes 6 Zoom group Q&A meetings, with Gina facilitating. Until we get too crowded, come as often as you like!

We have two Zoom meetings per month.

Initially, we had weekly meetings— to help refine the process and ascertain which times work best.  (That’s what you’ll see in the recording archive. We are no longer recording.)

2. When are the meetings held? Twice monthly — the second Saturday at Noon-1pm Pacific Time and one fluctuating weekday and time.

We have students from Australia to UK to Israel. After experimenting with a range of times, Saturday at noon works best all-around. 

But for those who can’t make that time, I’ll offer a weekday alternative, different times each month.  I’ll announce that time at the end of the previous month.

attending Zoom meetings—but it’s not mandatory.

Sometimes the group support will be the catalyst to get you going.

But please keep to the minimum questions that are covered in the course itself.

If you have course-related questions before you begin, you can always ask me:  Gina@ADHDSuccessTraining.com

Here is an instructional video for beginners.

1. On this page, enter “San Francisco” and the meeting time; then enter your city. OR….

2. Check this grid for a limited number of cities.

 

III. Questions and Answers

Q:  I’ve never used Zoom?  How do I do it?

This video walks you through it.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9isp3qPeQ0E

Q: Can I join the meeting at any time? 

Yes.  But if you enter with 10 minutes to go, know that we might not get to any questions you might have.  

I’d prefer no later than 15 minutes.  But if it’s absolutely necessary, of course. Join when you can!

Please know, though, that if no one joins the meeting after 15 minutes, it will be cancelled. (That hasn’t happened yet!)

Q:  Can I attend via audio only?

Yes.   The easiest way: Join through your electronic device and then select “stop video” on the call screen.  The Youtube link above explains details.

In the U.S., phone numbers are provided if you prefer phoning in. As far as I can tell, non-U.S.numbers aren’t available with my Pro Zoom membership.

Q:  The  initial schedule was weekly, but the sales page said every two weeks?

That’s right. September-October 2021 was experimental.  In November, we transitioned to the official twice monthly schedule.

Q: How does the Q&A work? 

Ask your questions within the group or pre-submit your anonymous questions:  Use this Google Form; it does not track e-mail addresses. 

A few hours before the meeting, I will gather the questions and respond to them in the Zoom call. 

Q: How will the Q&A work? Will it be recorded? 

This course offering did not include recordings of the meetings. But, as a “thank you” bonus, I  was able to record and archive the initial meetings.  You can watch/listen to them below. Note: we were still feeling our way, as this  “mixed group” has never been attempted before, to my knowledge.

Starting in 2022, meetings will not be recorded. For couples, each partner can participate in different meetings if they prefer, and perhaps speak more freely.  

Of course, couples are welcome to attend jointly. Please know, though, that this isn’t group couple therapy. 🙂 

Q: Can I actively participate in the meeting?

Yes, that’s what you’re there for!

As enrollment grows, each participant might have less “air time.” But we’ll worry about that when it happens.

Q: I am concerned about my privacy. What kind of steps can I take?

If anonymity is important to you with these meetings, you can take precautions.

For example:

  • Note that your ID will show on-screen. You can always change it temporarily.
  • Turn off your video input; participate with voice only
  • Phone in

Q: I purchased the course but I’d like my partner/parent/sibling to attend the Zoom meetings as well. Is that okay?

Of course!  And remember, you don’t have to take the course together!  

It might even be best if one of you goes first and takes time to process what you’ve learned….before discussing it with a loved one.

 

Q: Will you use the chat function?

I find it  a distraction from moderating the meeting. At some point, I  might have an assistant and can revisit that function. If someone wants to volunteer to monitor it, fine.

IV: Zoom Archive

View past meetings via these private links.  Each meeting is different! It all depends on who attends.

Thanks for not sharing these links outside this course (it’s fine to share with loved ones living with you).

Initially, I added quick notes of the questions and, in some cases, mini-answers and links to other resources.  My time is just too short now, as I’m working hard to create Courses 2, 3, and 4, so they’re there when you are ready!
