EPISODE #123: ADHD and the Benefits of A Faster Brain with Peter Shankman

SUMMARY

Raising a child with ADHD is often complicated, and being a child with ADHD is also REALLY hard. The constant redirections, the social struggles, and the low self-esteem can have the ADHD child feeling like they’re broken. “What’s wrong with me?” Is the recurring question in their mind? But what if we flip the script? As parents and caregivers, we have the opportunity to show kids that their brain is not broken; it’s BRILLIANT. They have a faster brain and just have to learn how to drive it. Today, we talk with author Peter Shankman about his journey to engage his faster brain and help parents teach their kids how to use what he calls “an amazing gift.”

 

MEET PETER

Peter is a 5x best-selling author, entrepreneur, and corporate keynote speaker. With three successful startup launches and exits under his belt, Peter is recognized worldwide for radically new ways of thinking about customer experience, social media, PR, marketing, advertising, and ADHD with the new neurodiverse and remote economies. He’s currently the Futurist in Residence at Price Benowitz and BluShark Digital. Peter’s podcast, Faster than Normal – is the #1 podcast on ADHD, focusing on the superpowers and gifts of having a “faster than normal brain,” which has helped thousands of people all around the world realize that having a neurodiverse brain is actually a gift, not a curse. Finally, Peter is a father, a 2x Ironman triathlete, a Class B licensed skydiver, and has a pretty serious Peloton addiction. When he’s not traveling around the world speaking to companies big and small, he’s based in NYC with his nine-year-old daughter and two-year-old dog, both of whom consistently refuse him access to his couch.
