133: Free to be ADHD with Brandy Wynn

Brandy Wynn is a self-identified marketing maven in-the-making. Diagnosed at the age of 30, now at 40, she’s enjoying her freedom from the box. In this conversation, you’ll learn what “freedom from the box” means.

Brandy has been an entrepreneur from an early age.  You will hear her describe her life and entrepreneur journey.  As a student in her 40s, Brandy describes why she is pursuing her MBA, despite the popular opinion that entrepreneurs don’t need to achieve this level of education.  She also shares her experience with advocating for herself in the world of education.  When Brandy sits in the hot-seat, we look at her strategies in her education.  In this discussion, I suggest that Brandy outsources will-power via Kitchen Safe. I also suggest she use Waze.

Brandy shares some insight into her personal views on ADHD, and in particular, her brand of ADHD.  In describing her “freedom from the box”, she talks about being comfortable in your own skin.  This leads to a discussion on “people first” language and how individuals might prefer to describe themselves and their diagnosis.
