If you want to peer into the mind of someone who has harnessed what some would consider a “weakness”—and instead flipped the script to achieve faster than normal entrepreneurial success—I can’t think of a better person to talk to than Peter Shankman.
Peter is a media entrepreneur who runs several businesses, gives keynote speeches around the world, hosts a popular podcast, runs marathons and Iron Mans, is a licensed skydiver and dabbles in angel investing.
He’s founded and sold several successful companies, most notably Help A Reporter Out (HARO), which was acquired by Vocus in 2010. He’s also written five books, including the most recent Faster Than Normal: Turbocharge Your Focus, Productivity, and Success with the Secrets of the ADHD Brain.
Peter spoke to me for this episode of the Go For Launch podcast. He’s candid about being diagnosed with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) at the age of 30, and how he has learned to self-impose constraints to accomplish more in his life. As someone who also was diagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) late in life, I appreciate Peter’s perspective and what he’s been able to accomplish—by embracing his neurodiversity.
