Thanks to this week’s Faster Than Normal sponsor, Bouncy Bands! Bouncy Bands attach to chairs and desks so you can bounce your feet and stretch your legs while you work. Kids usually have to sit still at their desk for 5-6 hours every day in school. Bouncy Bands let kids release their extra energy, anxiety, frustration, and boredom in an appropriate way without distracting others. When students use Bouncy Bands, teachers are surprised how students can stay on task longer and they aren’t as anxious when taking tests.They are available on Amazon and at BouncyBands.com. Thousands of teachers have been able to get free Bouncy Bands by getting funded through Donor’s Choose. Here’s a link with tips on getting funded, along with a sample 1-page application to copy and paste: http://BouncyBands.com/DC – Use code SHANKMAN for a discount!


Welcome to those who joined us last week thanks to our wonderful conversation with Tony Robbins! We’re thrilled you’re here!

This week’s episode is all about conversation. Without conversation, you can’t grow. Our guest this week believes that, as well. Larry Hagner runs The Good Dad Project, a podcast and site dedicated to helping men become the best they can possibly be – The best dads, the best husbands, the best human beings they can possibly be.

ADHD plays a crucial role in our communication – And how we interact with others. Larry talks about all of this, including ADHD in kids, school, and the benefits (and curses) of not following the norm.

Enjoy the conversation, and thanks for listening!
