I’ve been looking forward to this visit with Scott for a while! He’s written six books, but it’s his latest best-sellar that I’m totally in love with! The best part? He’s had ADHD since he was a nano-sphere in his mother’s belly, and when I say “I take cold showers every day”, he doesn’t respond: “What the hell is wrong with you man??!” We talk about all of his journeys here today. I know your going to like this one, Enjoy!

A little bit more about Scott:  Investigative journalist and anthropologist Scott Carney (scottcarney.com) has worked in some of the most dangerous and unlikely corners of the world. His work blends narrative non-fiction with ethnography. Currently, he is the CEO of the tiny Denver-based media company Foxtopus Ink, a senior fellow at the Schuster Institute for Investigative Journalism and a 2016-17 Scripps Fellow at the Center for Environmental Journalism in Boulder, Colorado. His books include the New York Times best seller"What Doesn't Kill Us" as well as "The Red Market" and "The Enlightenment Trap." 

Carney was a contributing editor at Wired for five years and his writing also appears in Mother Jones, Men's Journal, Playboy, Foreign Policy, Discover, Outside and Fast Company. His work has been the subject of a variety of radio and television programs, including on NPR and National Geographic TV. In 2010, he won the Payne Award for Ethics in Journalism for his story "Meet the Parents," which tracked an international kidnapping-to-adoption ring. Carney has spent extensive time in South Asia and speaks Hindi.

It was never pointed out to Neil that he had all the tell-tale signs of ADD; not until he was 42 years old and recently separated from his then-wife. A good friend sent him an article on Adult ADHD/ADD. He soon after listened to my bookon a drive to Detroit. The lightbulb switched on and he found himself overwhelmed by his recent self-discoveries. It took him a couple of years, (one on Concerta), to sort things out and fully understand that he wasn’t “broken” or alone. He soon-there-after found a community of dog trainers, discovered the joy that comes from teaching & training dogs, (and their owners), and he committed to owning a training franchise. Has been working in and growing the "Dog space" ever since! His prior pursuits and careers have been: CEO, Marketing Consultant, Chimney Sweep, a few rides during the dot-com boom, Circus Trainer & Performer, scuba diver, competitive unicyclist, world traveler, maintaining his black belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, and being a stay-at-home Dad! It’s a lot. We talk about his journey, his love of dogs and how he’s found a happy home. Enjoy!

Collin’s struggle with ADHD has always been a crucial part of who he is. ADHD was almost a mystery to him, and he always felt out of place, wondering why he was “different” from his peers. It wasn’t until he began to research these feelings that he discovered that there were others who felt the same way. Collin then became obsessed with understanding ADHD. Throughout his research, Collin began to feel comforted knowing that there are resources that can truly help people struggling to understand themselves.  During high school, Collin was introduced to a MLM company called Vemma which sparked Collin’s passion to become an Entrepreneur. He has since invested hours upon hours into personal development, communication, and leadership skills. He now manages his own Car Detailing business, which started as a side hustle, but is turning into a profitable source of income. Today we talk about his journey and what’s been working for him.  Enjoy!

Brian grew up in suburban NJ. He was diagnosed with ADHD at six years old. He moved away, graduated from Tulane University with a Philosophy degree and a honed talent for writing. In 2016, he was interviewed by Fox 5 NY about his ADHD memoir & personal experience with Adderall addiction. I actually have Brian’s book on my desk right now! He’s a successful entrepreneur, continues to be very outspoken about society's miscomprehension of ADHD and is helping to change the conversation! Now living in NYC with his wife Lindsey, Brian loves to travel, lift weights, talk philosophy at bars, and enjoys spending time with family & friends.
