The Interview that started it all with Dan Mangena

This is a replay of the interview I did with Dan Mangena on The Guy Who Knows a Guy Podcast back on July 26th, 2021.

At that time, I was interviewing successful people to learn what they were doing that I could learn from. On every episode, I would ask "How are you awesome?" and "How did you do it?"

Dan's answer to "How are you awesome?" was "Asperger's." I had never thought of neurodiversity as a source of success, and this answer started me down a line of thought and inquiry that eventually led to this show.

Dan has a lot of wit and wisdom to share, and you'll get a lot out of this interview, but I particularly wanted to share it because it goes back to the roots of this venture.

About the Podcast

Neurodiversity Superpowers of Autism, ADHD, OCD, Dyslexia, and other unique brains
Success born of Autism, ADHD, OCD, Dyslexia, and all forms of unique brains
For two decades, I believed that my ADHD was a disability. Only at the age of 41 would I come to realize that my ADHD was an incredible asset, and when I leaned into that, I achieved greater success than ever before. ADHD is the engine behind my own success as a networker and coach. Over the past few years, I have spoken with thousands of entrepreneurs, and found that many of them have some kind of neurodiverse diagnosis. ADHD, Autism, Dyslexia, OCD, and more. Like me, for many of them, their neurodiversity is indeed the very source of their success. On this show, we will the change the narrative on neurodiversity. I've heard enough about the challenges and hard it can be. I want to hear about how awesome we are. It's time to start talking about how our neurodiversity can be an asset for ourselves, our communities, and our businesses. It's time to start talking about neurodiversity superpowers.

On this show, you will meet dozens of people who are successful because of, not in spite of, their neurodiversity. You will be inspired. You be educated. You will be excited.

I invite you to join me in learned about the world of Neurodiversity Superpowers.
