Matt Curry is a successful entrepreneur with A.D.D. In this book, he takes time to explore myths and truths of his A.D.D. experience. Here are some excerpts from the Introduction by Cameron Herold, author of the best-seller, Double Double: How to Double Your Revenue and Profit in Three Years or Less.
Entrepreneurs are different. We’re wired differently. We’re the 1%. To others, we’re on the lunatic fringe, and to many, we’re risk takers. However, when you get a group of entrepreneurs in a room together, we’re pretty much all the same. One of the key traits that makes us who we are is that most of us “suffer” from Attention Deficit Disorder (A.D.D.).
Matt’s book outlines some of the tips to leveraging A.D.D. And as all of us who have it know, we want the short cuts; we want the easy solutions. His book gives them to us.
You’re an entrepreneur. Entrepreneurs are wired differently. Embrace that, and grow. Matt’s book will give you the inspiration to do it. Matt Curry has adopted the posture that, for him, A.D.D. is not a negative. In fact, he has embraced it.
“I’ve channeled my A.D.D. onto a positive track and used it to build businesses that have not only made a lot of money but have also made a lot of money for other people and made their lives better. And that’s what this book is all about: how my off-the-wall A.D.D. tendencies inspired me to create and execute a set of proven principles for growing a successful business.” ~ Matt Curry, The A.D.D. Entrepreneur
“Most entrepreneurs I know are definitely wired with A.D.D. We hop from one thing to another; we create messes and chaos. But some of those entrepreneurs also change and impact the world with their visionary ideas. This gives you a blueprint to harness your own superpowers that come with A.D.D. and make it big.” ~ Yanik Silver, author of Maverick Startup
“There are many great CEOs who have been diagnosed with bipolar disorder and A.D.D. The reason for this—in many instances—is that not ‘fitting in’ forced them to identify and develop the skills that happen to align with becoming a successful business leader. As someone who takes medication for A.D.D., I view my condition as a gift, and in The A.D.D. Entrepreneur, Matt Curry has provided a wealth of knowledge for how to play by your own rules and turn your ‘disorder’ into a massive advantage.”~ Derek Coburn, author of Networking Is Not Working
“Matt Curry deserves credit for not writing just another run of the mill business book. True to his nature, Matt has tackled an important subject and generously and honestly detailed his successes and failures in a way that is sure to help business owners and entrepreneurs unlock their ‘superpowers’.” ~ Bob London, President, London, Ink LLC
