Season 2 - Episode 3:

Peter Shankman- Masterclass

Peter Shankman- Masterclass

Episode Summary

Peter Shankman has a faster-than-normal brain, and he’s put it to good use. In this week’s episode, we talk about ADHD and he answers questions from our live audience members about scaling, hiring, and raising your rates.

Episode Notes

In our special Masterclass episodes, we collect questions from real-life entrepreneurs at our live #imakealiving shows around the world, and ask our favourite experts to weigh in. From social media to scaling, from advertising to work-life balance, we get insights and guidance from folks in the know.

In our first Masterclass episode of the season, we are delighted to talk with Peter Shankman. He has been a vocal advocate for neurodiversity in the workplace, he is the founder of the journalism tool HARO, and is a successful writer, speaker, podcast host, and entrepreneur.

In our conversation, we cover a wide ground – not surprising, given that Shankman has leveraged his own ADHD into a better understanding of his complex body chemistry and physical needs. (He tells us how to write a book in 34 hours – it involves booking a flight to Tokyo!) He also answers questions from our #imadealiving live events about why authentic social media is best, why listening to your audience will help grow your business, and why you – yes, you – should charge more in 2020. We take our advice from a man who says that jumping out of a plane gets him into work mode, don’t you?
