Sometimes, for people with ADHD, inspiration comes from the most random of places. For this week's guest, Nick Berry, it arrived in the form of a military enlistment, followed by a tour in Operation Enduring Freedom.
Once out of the military, Nick used the hyper-focus from his ADHD to launch SendLift, an online service that sends handwritten thank you notes all around the world. He's a huge believer in therapy, and knows he has his ADHD to thank for his success.
