Big ups to FitKit for supporting the podcast this week. FitKit offers a number of different wellness products for both mind and body that make healthy living SIMPLE! I love their products and live by them when on the road. All of the kits are portable and packable, fit right in a carry on and most come with bands and tubes, a jump rope, 250 exercises and other great tools and resources. No excuses, especially when they include a 6 week nutrition and fitness plan as well as 24/7 email access to their dietitians and trainers! All the kits range in price from $10-$40 but if you use the code FTN, you get 20% during the month of January. Whichever kit you chose, you can take comfort in knowing they have been created by fitness, nutrition and wellness experts with the sole purpose helping you get healthy and fit. Not only are the FitKits great for individuals, but every organization should get these for their employees or clients. Each Kit can be fully branded with your logo, they offer volume pricing and starting at just $4, there is a FitKit for every budget. Companies like Keurig, Marriott, Dell New York Presbyterian Hospital among others have branded the FitKit products as a creative way to encourage health while at the same time promoting their brand. Win – Win. The best part: people love receiving them! Learn more at fitkit.com. Check them out. I love them.

Welcome to another episode of Faster Than Normal! Thrilled that you're here!

We're talking this week to American syndicated columnist, humorist, publisher, and speaker Randy Cassingham, probably best known for starting one of the first ever email newsletters, "This is True."

Massively ADHD, hear how he left a perfectly good job at JPL (the NASA guys) to go out on his own to do something with "that internet thing." He never looked back.

Randy's best tip: Turn off email notifications.

This episode is inspiring. I'm a huge fan of this guy. No doubt you will be, too. Enjoy!

Now then - Welcome to Tim Fargo, this week's FTN guest! Tim has one of the shortest bios known to man, which essentially says "started a company. Went bankrupt. Started another one. Sold it for $50mm. Now run Social Jukebox."

That's it. Obviously, I think there's a little more to the man than that, and you'll hear about it on this interview. And it's a good one. Got kids who have ever failed? You ever failed? This is the episode for you.

And of course, Tim is massively ADHD. We knew that from his bio, though.

Enjoy!

Most important to us, he's written several papers, and conducted several studies on entrepreneurship and ADHD.

We're so lucky to have Dr. Wiklund on the podcast today! He touches on such topics like structure (we need it,) ADHD and self-care, why "jobs are for average people" and more. This is an amazing interview - How great to be able to start the new year with it!

Enjoy!
