Peter Shankman

Peter Shankman is a spectacular example of what happens when you find the best traits of ADHD and work really hard to make them benefit you.

Diagnosed at seven years old with "sit down, you're disrupting the class" disease, Peter wasn't formally diagnosed with ADHD until his mid-30s. By that time, however, he'd started and sold two companies, and realized that all the differences that formerly labeled him as a troublemaker were actually his greatest assets. After Peter sold his third company, (Help a Reporter Out,) he decided to focus on really understanding this "faster brain" of his, and learning exactly what it could do. From that, the Faster Than Normal podcast and bestselling book were born.

Peter believes that everyone has gifts, potential, and abilities far beyond what society has deemed "normal," and strives to help bring those gifts to life in as many people as he can through his podcast, books, online videos, and countless worldwide speaking appearances. He can be found at @petershankman on all of the socials, and at
