Going “out on your own” requires passion, creativity, and risk-taking, characteristics commonly used to describe individuals who have ADHD.
In fact, as many as 40% of entrepreneurs report having ADHD or executive function difficulties that negatively impacted their school experience.
Remarkably, in spite of the negative impacts, many successful entrepreneurs feel that their struggles inspired them to reach the success they experience today.
A growing number of innovators, entrepreneurs, CEO’s, Olympic athletes, and award-winning artists have recently disclosed that their ADHD, managed effectively, has played a vital role in their success.
