How I discovered I had ADHD (and why it’s my superpower as an entrepreneur)


with Janet Murray

Last year I was diagnosed with ADHD – at the age of 45.

If you haven’t heard of it before, ADHD stands for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder – a condition that affects the functioning of the brain and includes symptoms such as inattentiveness, hyperactivity and impulsiveness.

Listen to this solo podcast with me, Janet Murray, to find out what led to my diagnosis (including what made me suspect I might have ADHD) and how it’s impacted my life.

And why – although it does present challenges – I believe it’s my greatest ‘superpower’ as an entrepreneur.
