Want to know how I use my ADHD to get four hours of my life back each day? I’ll show you – Totally free – Grab the info here

You might call this week’s guest “The Distractinator.” I would, anyway. Curt Steinhorst is on a mission to cure distraction, and a lot of people would say he’s doing an amazing job. He’s the reason I install “KillNewsfeed” on every browser I use.

Check this guy out: Having spent years studying the impact of tech on human behavior, he now equips professionals across the world to work smarter and stronger in this constantly-connected age.

As a leading voice on strategic communications in the age of distraction, Curt speaks on average more than 90 times a year. His clients range from more than ten companies on the Fortune 100 and global leadership associations such as YPO, EO, and Million Dollar Roundtable, to professional sports teams and even Taylor Swift’s record label.
