        Being You

        From big name CEOs to athletes, authors to scientists, to the capable and accomplished individuals you interact with on a daily basis, all sorts of people have learning and attention issues. They’re not only coping, but thriving—and many credit their learning and attention issues as the driving force that shaped their success.
