117: How to Turn Your ADHD Struggle Into Your ADHD Power! with Jeremy Finck


This week, I interviewed Jeremy Finck, Founder of ThinckFinck Media and Coaching and Host of ADHD Brains Radio. Jeremy helps adults with ADHD understand and manage their own ADHD experience. You can say this conversation is personal, at least for me, as I am one of the many entrepreneurs out there living with ADHD. It is not a general topic in the entrepreneurial world when we think about the possibility of success for someone with this condition. But we have enough, even too much information and anecdotal evidence to conclude that ADHD can be a superpower if managed and leveraged in the right way. And that is what Jeremy teaches us today. Jeremy helps us understand the challenges and appreciate the unique characteristics of living with ADHD. He also talks about the misconceptions around ADHD and two of the most salient points to remember about this condition. Our society was biased in portraying ADHD by focusing and emphasizing it in a negative light. But with a more enlightened perspective, the world will see that ADHD entrepreneurs can succeed, and they are often the best guys to work with.


“Make everything you do resonate with who you are. And when you do that, a lot of those tasks get easier, less painful, and manageable.” -Jeremy Finck
