Photo of Markus In May, I talked about the film Shine and shared some insights for managing ADHD as an entrepreneur. Since that time, I’ve started thinking again about my own journey. When I started my journey to figure out “what I wanted to do in my life” I was about 13 or 14 years old. I’d like to go back to the beginning and share my journey with you, and I hope that ...
