Peter Shankman – Episode 204

On this episode of Blunt Force Truth, Chuck Woolery and Mark Young open with a discussion of the hypocrisy of new regulations proposed in California for the modeling industry.

They invite networking master Peter Shankman on the podcast to discuss Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and how it helped him in his life and career. He learned how his mind works, found the benefits of his “faster brain” and harnessed his gifts into a wealth of successful ventures. Through self-awareness, he has created a daily routine to remove hurdles in the way of him accomplishing what he needs to.

They discuss the education system in this country and how it doesn’t adapt to different learning styles, leaving many children (especially those with ADHD) behind. Often the first reaction is to treat the issue with medication rather than coach children to use their “faster brain” to succeed.

Shankman is an accomplished entrepreneur who has founded a number of companies, including Help A Reporter Out (HARO). He runs Shankminds, an online community of entrepreneurial Masterminds designed to encourage each other in business and share ideas that work. He acts as a customer service/PR/social media consultant to many high profile clients and shares his expertise as an acclaimed author and speaker. And if that wasn’t enough, he is the creator of Faster Than Normal, an online resource and podcast for people with ADD and ADHD.
