Today we visit with Mark Murphy. He wasn’t diagnosed with ADHD until he was nearly 50. We talk about how he built his company and how being impulsive can sometimes be a huge benefit. Mark is a trusted travel expert, best-selling author, entrepreneur and professional speaker. He is the founder and CEO of travAlliancemedia, the leading travel trade media company in the United States. His company has been recognized 6X (starting in 2008) by Inc magazine, as one of the fastest growing privately held companies in the United States. He provides professional commentary for both consumer and business travelers, and is a frequent travel expert and travel analyst on major networks & news stations including: The Today Show, CNN, FOX Business, FOX News, and ABC, CBS,NBC and The Travel Channel.
