Sentimental blog post with a few lessons to learn: http://bit.ly/1c2quvo
The hardest thing a mamma bird has to do is kick her offspring out of the nest to teach them they can fly. But if she doesn't, the baby bird never will.

Very personal blog post: How I've hacked my life to turn my ADHD from disability into advantage. (Part 1 of many...) http://bit.ly/1Ck7767
First in a multi-part series: I'm the poster child for using my ADHD to my advantage. But it's not always easy. ADHD is much more than just

I've been a fan of +Peter Shankman since I stumbled across HARO shortly after he launched it. Kinda fell off the bandwagon when I stopped getting sucked in by Twitter, but still impressed by what I hear and read.

Are you a one-trick-pony? Hope not... It's the kiss of death! http://shankman.com/are-you-a-one-trick-pony-that-s-the-kiss-of-death/
In today's ADHD economy, there are very few things that can kill your career faster than only having one skill.

I want you to become an off-peak person. You'll thank me for it, I promise. http://bit.ly/1A6kUlM 
Over time, I've learned that the best times to do things are when everyone else isn't. I want you to do the same.

Try waiting in a freezing doctor's exam room in a paper gown at
6 pm for a procedure that was scheduled for 3pm. No food since dinner the night before. It's a part of life. Gotta just suck it up sometimes. No one ever said that life was fair or that people were considerate.

Story
Tagline
Husband, Father, Cat Father, Entrepreneur, CEO, Skydiver, Ironman... Told I'm smart about customer service, marketing, PR, advertising, and social media.
Introduction
PR Week Magazine has described Peter as “redefining the art of networking”, and Investor’s Business Daily has called him “crazy, but effective”. Peter Shankman is a spectacular example of what happens when you merge the power of pure creativity with  Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and a dose of adventure, and make it work to your advantage.
Bragging rights
As far as I know, I'm the first person to text in free fall, and one of my tweets, randomly enough, wound up as one of the top ten tweets of 2011, as judged by ABC News and Twitter. See www.shankman.com for more.
