TICM 66 | Peter Shankman | Leveraging The Power Of ADD & ADHD

The New York Times has call Peter Shankman "a public relations all-star who knows everything about new media and then some," while Investor's Business Daily has labeled him "crazy, but effective." 

I love Peter's twitter, where it list out 15 different things, including NASA advisor, Ironman. Skydiver. Dad.

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.

Peter is a bestselling author, entrepreneur, speaker, and worldwide connector, Peter is recognized worldwide for radically new ways of thinking about Customer Service, Entrepreneurship, Social Media, PR, marketing and advertising.

Peter is best known for founding Help A Reporter Out, (HARO) which in under a year became the de-facto standard for thousands of journalists looking for sources on deadline, offering them more than 200,000 sources around the world looking to be quoted in the media.

In June of 2010, less than two years after Peter started HARO in his apartment, it was acquired by Cision, Inc.

 

Peter is the founder of ShankMinds: Breakthrough, a private online entrepreneurial community, with members in more-than-ten countries.

 

Peter also hosts the award-winning podcast on ADD and ADHD, Faster Than Normal, which is helping to turn the conversation around ADHD from curse to gift, by interviewing successful people who have made ADHD their secret superpower.
