Now then - Say hi to Dr. Johan Wiklund! Dr. Wiklund is the Al Berg Chair and Professor of Entrepreneurship at Whitman School of Management, Syracuse University.

He is considered a leading authority in entrepreneurship research with over 60 articles appearing in leading entrepreneurship and management journals and over 20,000 citations.

He is Editor-in-Chief for Entrepreneurship Theory and Practice. A prolific advisor of Ph.D. students, he received the Academy of Management Entrepreneurship Division Mentor Award in 2011.

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!

    I am wondering if there’s a way to get in touch with Dr. Willund or maybe he can direct me to someone who would be able to coach me. I am looking to shift from employee, I’m an RN to having my own business that allows me to use my ADHD strengths. I see the value in this yet there’s fear and there are practical steps I need advice from someone who can support me in making this shift.

    Thanks,

    I Can’t possibly summarize in one short post what a difference this episode of this podcast has meant to me I have been searching and listening and cross-referencing different podcasts and websites and forums and books and magazines and ..... both for the child and for the adult from all across the Internet and the local libraries, anything I can get my hands on to be honest. Episode 80 is where I just happened to be myself personally, so while I am breathless by the time the episode ends I don’t expect this episode to do that for everyone BUT if you go through these archives as I have and if you know anyone who is ADHD you will be reminded of them and you will see them in an entirely different newer and brighter light!
