ADHD CAN BE YOUR SECRET TO SUCCESS

ADHD is often presented as something to deal with, but it can have unexpected benefits.  

At the last census, 6.8 per cent of Australians were diagnosed with ADHD.

Believe it or not, people with ADHD are 300% more likely to start their own business and many business leaders have ADHD. People like Richard Branson (founder Virgin Airlines) and Ingvar Kamprad, Swedish founder IKEA (who says he adapted the inner workings of his business to compensate for his ADHD and dyslexia).

Jeremiah Hartman uses his ADHD strengths

Jeremiah Hartman, 35 has attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. He worked in unfulfilling jobs until he was diagnosed at 27 with ADHD. It was a defining time. He identified his ADHD strengths and harnessed them into a creative tool that helped him succeed.  

The positives aspects of his ADHD (quick wit, high energy, enthusiasm and creativity) have been crucial to his business success as Sydney based professional MC (Master of Ceremonies) and runs events and charity fundraisers.

TV's most creative chef, Heston Blumenthal tells how "ADHD helps his imaginative juices flow." 

 

Scientists believe ADHD helped society by providing risk-takers who identify dangers and map out boundaries.
