David also shared on;
ADD can actually be an advantage to entrepreneurs. It allows for greater creativity and the chance to hone in on your strengths, and build a business on what you really like. In marketing, people with ADD can benefit from putting out content that suits their personality and attracts people like them. The keys to overcoming the distractions are routine, time management, getting enough sleep, exercising and when things go wrong - focus on fixing the system, not feeling bad about not getting things done.
