Every once in a long while, you get an amazing interview with someone you've been trying to nail down for years. Someone you think of as a hero, and someone who has been so bold about how they live their life, all you can do is listen and try and hold on.
That's today, as I had the distinct pleasure of interviewing David Neeleman, probably best known for founding JetBlue Airlines.
He’s classic ADHD, (enjoy his story of the tree in his yard) but more importantly, he believes, possibly more than any guest we’ve had yet, that ADHD is truly a gift, not a curse.
He took the time to do this interview as he was driving from one meeting to the next, so while the audio quality is a bit less that we’re used to here, it’s still perfectly listenable.
David Neeleman is that rarest of entrepreneurs, a man who has created and launched four successful, independent airlines, including the USA’s JetBlue and Morris Air, Canada’s WestJet and Brazil’s Azul. And yes, he's done it all with (not in spite of) his ADHD.
