This Week’s Episode: 

Shauna Heron joins me on this episode.  Shauna is a wedding photographer, entrepreneur, mom, world traveler, game streamer, techno-nerd who just recently found out that she has ADHD. After 44 years, Shauna was researching information to support her 7-year old son with ADHD; she started to have that sneaking suspicion that she had found the answer to her life-long question, “What the (bleep) is wrong with me?!”

In this discussion, you will hear Shauna’s interesting and unique life story.  She talks about her childhood, her involvement in the punk scene, and running away as a teenager.  She had an interest in technology, which led to a well-paying job before she decided to move to Europe.  Shauna details her addiction to hard drugs and what the recover process looked like for her.  This is a fascinating story, and I am excited to share it with you.
