Entrepreneurship & ADD
Potential & Pitfalls
ADD / ADHD Adults are natural entrepreneurs, since we often need to do things OUR way, rather than follow traditional methods. It is believed that a much higher percentage of entrepreneurs and self-employed people are ADD than are in the working population as a whole.

Weird things I learned about myself from covid-19 This “life on pause” during corona-time has certainly been a time of disruption.
