What happens when a furniture designer and a PhD in applied physics decides to change his life and then help others do the same? You get  this week's guest, Anders Fabech Rønnau.

Despite being a Ph.D. in Applied Physics and a Furniture Designer, he is now a leading ADHD Coach and ADHD Coach Trainer in Denmark, and has taught parenting programs since 2010 and ADHD Coach training since 2012. His primary focus is on ADHD, however, his methods work very well with differently wired people with Asperger’s, OCD, Tourette’s and other diagnoses – as well as ”normal” people with ”normal problems”.

Happy listening! :)

OK... Brace yourself here for some seriously massive overachieving...

Our guest this week (taking a deep breath,) is a marketing major at Fordham University’s Gabelli School of Business. She received the Woolworth Award for her academic achievements as well as an award commending her working group for its business plan and presentation. When she's not studying, she works as an MTV Campus Ambassador for the Founders franchise, and is a Guest Writer for freshman-oriented online publication Fresh U.

Oh, did I mention that Emma Havighorst is only EIGHTEEN YEARS OLD? Yeah. Took me a second to process that, too.

Emma has actually never formally been diagnosed with ADHD, yet she set my "ADHD-dar" off the first time I read one of her tweets. You'll see why as you listen to this interview - She's got such a sharp grasp of time management, along with an uncanny ability to understand what's important now, vs. what's important not now. 

Parents, this is definitely an episode to share with your kids. As I interviewed her, I was reminded of another guest we had on several months ago, Rachel Cotton, a PhD out of Harvard. Both well aware of their gifts and what to do to make sure they're using them to the best of their ability to live the best lives possible.

Enjoy the episode!

In this episode, Peter and Emma discuss:

  • Emma's back story (03:06)
  • Time management (04:59)
  • Color coding (09:04)
  • Growing up in a digital environment (11:16)
  • Disconnecting (13:11)
  • Ability to focus (17:13)
