On this episode, we are going to talk with the serial entrepreneur Peter Shankman who is the founder of Faster Than Normal. Faster Than Normal is a movement that focuses on changing the way people view ADD and ADHD.
Peter has spent the past twenty years starting, building and selling companies. He also spends his time writing best-selling books, speaking internationally, making almost daily TV appearances, and teaching hundreds of thousands of people how to improve their personal and professional lives. He does all this by using his ADHD as a gift instead of a curse. And that is what he wants to share with people.
Further along in the episode, we dive into Peter’s life with ADHD and how he structures his life to create constructive outcomes. He gives parents some great suggestions that have children with ADD/ADHD and we talk about how diet plays a role in his life.
Peter used his passion for helping others, with something that he struggled with, and made it into a movement to create a lasting change.
