Every once in a while we get to interview people who share some goals with Faster Than Normal. These people have a similar calling- to help, inspire and teach people more about ADHD. Today is one of those days! Sarah is the brains behind www.AdultingWithADHD.com, a blog for ADHD women. Along with the blog, she hosts a spin-off podcast and online support group with the mission of bringing self-empowerment and practical tips to her community. A digital marketer by day, Sarah lives with her husband and toddler in San Antonio, Texas. We hope this is helpful and useful to you. Enjoy!
