At 8 years old, I got diagnosed with ADHD.

I felt broken.

Burdened by a “brain’ that would surely screw me out of any type of meaningful contribution in the world.

Everyday was a crapshoot.

Without knowing how I’d “show up” on any given day, setting goals (and pursuing them) felt like a fool’s game -- and when I’d inevitably fail, it only supported my belief that I was messed up beyond repair.

Over the next decade, I spiralled into a deep depression...

… culminating in a tipping point where if I didn't learn how to turn my “curse” into a superpower, it would literally kill me.

This week’s video is all about my “homemade” prescription for how I naturally turned ADHD into my superpower… and ultimately a catalyst for my legacy as an investor and entrepreneur.

While I don’t endorse a medication-free approach to ADHD, I encourage you to test any combination of these “ingredients” to see what moves the needle for you.

And of course… make sure to consult with your physician ;-)

At a high-level, the 9 ingredients of my “natural” ADHD meds are:

1. Nutrition
2. Sweat Every Day
3. 8 Hours of Sleep
4. Morning Routines
5. 30 Minute Pomodoro Window
6. Energy Management
7. Music
8. Block Time
9. Build a Team

The first 8 can literally be implemented this week -- and stack upon each other to exponentially increase your ability to focus, be productive, and move your mission forward with confidence.

Number 9 will take a bit more time, but I believe is where ADHD truly becomes a superpower.

When you literally can’t will yourself to focus on certain tasks, it works as a forcing function to get support and leverage other people’s skills faster than you otherwise would’ve.

Whether you’re looking to get off ADHD meds… or simply have a mission that your brain feels incapable of keeping up with, it’s my hope that these 9 steps help serve you in an incredible, life-changing way.

Give it a watch here.

Dan “Not an Internet Doctor” Martell

Don't forget to share this entrepreneurial advice with your friends, so they can learn too:


“You can only keep what you give away.” That’s the mantra that’s shaped Dan Martell from a struggling 20-something business owner in the Canadian Maritimes (which is waaay out east) to a successful startup founder who’s raised more than $3 million in venture funding and exited not one... not two... but three tech businesses:, Spheric and Flowtown.

You can only keep what you give away. That philosophy has led Dan to invest in 33+ early stage startups such as Udemy, Intercom, Unbounce and Foodspotting. It’s also helped him shape the future of Hootsuite as an advisor to the social media tour de force.

An activator, a tech geek, an adrenaline junkie and, yes, a romantic (ask his wife Renee), Dan has recently turned his attention to teaching startups a fundamental, little-discussed lesson that directly impacts their growth: how to scale. You’ll find not only incredible insights in every moment of every talk Dan gives - but also highly actionable takeaways that will propel your business forward. Because Dan gives freely of all that he knows. After all, you can only keep what you give away.

Treating ADHD

Fitness coach, life coach, father of one Ralph Quillen is familiar with ADHD.

I think most parents are aware of the problem. I've coached for twelve years and I've seen a progression in it over the years, says Quillen.

There is confusion and misconceptions about what it is and how you treat it.

The reality is, the research shows it's not so much the motoric behavior but rather the attention deficits that are the hallmark of this disorder, says Dr. Elena Reyes, clinical psychologist with Lee Memorial Health System.

Meaning kids aren't able to plan and execute everyday tasks. It's now estimated 1 in 10 children in the US - 1 in 5 teenage boys - are diagnosed with ADHD and 3.5 million youngsters are taking an ADHD drug. Something doctors say can be a game-changer.

Medication is often needed to allow for the child to be able to focus. We've got good research that shows children who are appropriately diagnosed and appropriately treated with medication can do very well, says Dr. Reyes.

Medication may be the most talked about ADHD treatment, but not the only one. Behavior management, actually working on impulse control can be successful, provided parents buy in.

We train the student about how to organize themselves, how to stop how to think, how to be able to manage their work and their behavior. That usually is associated with parent management also. If a child can't structure themselves how can you as a parent structure them so they can be successful, says Dr. Reyes.

Ralph sees the structure, required in sports, makes an impact.

I see more kids that are medicated through high school these days then when I first started coaching. As an athlete, sports is more of an outlet - so it actually helps them, says Quillen.

The end game is the same: helping kids find their focus

Signs, Symptoms, and Treatment of ADHD in Children

Dr. Dehra Harris, a pediatric psychiatrist with Washington University at St. Louis Children’s Hospital discusses the signs and symptoms in ADHD in children.

Parents often ask me, “Is ADHD overdiagnosed?” That’s a tough question to answer. Many factors affect a child’s attention, making ADHD a complicated diagnosis. We follow standards and strict procedures to assess symptoms of ADHD and accurately diagnose the condition. If you see signs your child Is struggling in school or other aspects of life because of attention, talk to a trusted physician.

When you talk to your pediatrician, it is likely they will recommend involving the school and obtaining classroom assessments. Historically, ADHD has been more commonly diagnosed in boys, largely because boys often present disruptive behaviors that are easy to identify in the classroom. The inattentive type of ADHD is harder to identify in both boys and girls. In these circumstances, the child is more of a daydreamer who is missing concepts in the classroom because he or she is focused on something else.

Many parents are conflicted about whether or not to give their child medication to treat ADHD. Medication is a very personal decision, and there are a few natural remedies you can try before pursuing other options. These include:
- Changing diet by avoiding food dyes and preservatives
- Addressing sleep issues

While natural remedies for children with ADHD can help, they do not always work. When deciding whether to try ADHD medications, remember: these medicines have been used for over 50 years. When used correctly, they are very safe and effective.

If you suspect your child is displaying symptoms of ADHD, talk to your pediatrician. If you have additional concerns, they can help you decide when it’s time to connect with a specialist who works with more complicated cases.
