This Week’s Episode:
Steve Mazure was diagnosed with ADHD in June of 2016, and since the diagnosis, everything has changed. Steve has been on a journey of growth and self-discovery. He is now learning to accept who he is and he’s letting go of the person he was trying to be.
In this conversation, you will hear Steve share his story of being diagnosed with ADHD and decided to start a chocolate company. He talks about the aspects of running a business that he struggles with, and I share some tips with him that will hopefully help him overcome these barriers.
