Show Notes

This episode is the recording of December’s live Q&A.  The questions answered in this episode were submitted by listeners of this podcast, both ahead of time and live.  Brendan Mahan once again joins me on this Q&A.

On this episode, you will hear Brendan, and me answer a handful of listener questions.  You will hear us answer questions on unstructured time, regulating emotions in the workplace, and the transition from high school to college.  You’ll also hear a story of a near-fight involving Brendan, and he has the ability to turn that situation into a learning opportunity.

You can listen to our live Q&A sessions on the second Tuesday of every month at 1:30 pm Eastern.  Join Brendan Mahan and me as we answer your questions live. You can register at https://www.adhdrewired.com/events.
