The #1 ADHD podcast on iTunes, hosted by

My name is Peter Shankman, and I’ve spent the past twenty years starting, building, and selling companies, as well as writing best-selling books, speaking to corporations all over the world, making almost daily TV appearances, teaching hundreds of thousands of people how to improve their personal and professional lives, and finally, being a husband and a father. I’ve also been diagnosed gifted with ADD/ADHD.

So what’s my secret? I’ve learned to use my ADD/ADHD as an advantage, not as a disability. I’ve come up with and implemented countless tricks, secrets, and hacks that constantly improve my day to day life, professionally, and personally. Faster Than Normal is where I’m going to share them with you.
