Being a neurodivergent, my mind is constantly spinning with creative ideas.
These same ideas and thoughts are lucrative opportunities that often get dismissed, disregarded, or shut down in corporate cultures. In fact this is something that I have experienced personally throughout my work history. It seems like being nuerodiverse is looked at as a problem verses a solution. And I’m here to be a solution to it.
Understanding Your Neurodiversity
I'll be the first to admit, a lot of the time ADHD feels like a curse. If you're neurodivergent, I know you can relate.
