A lot of people I meet in the ADHD world are thrown into “all things ADHD” because they simply have no choice. What’s interesting is that my guest today has decided to make educating and helping folks with ADHD his profession! He coaches, he blogs, and he has started an ADHD support group for men- which is how I found him. There aren’t just loads of places to go, especially outside of the medical community, where you can have open and frank discussions with others who are similarly gifted. Marc has recently co-authored a book that will be out soon. We talk about how he chose this path, and some about what it’s like to be a guy who’s grown up with ADHD. Enjoy!
