  • Los Angeles-Long Beach, CA (1888PressRelease) July 11, 2020 - In an inspiring episode of “The Confidence Connection with Suzanne Sena,” scheduled to be released Wednesday, July 15, 2020, the founder of Help-A-Reporter-Out (HARO,) Peter Shankman shares his wild success story. After brokering a 3-figure deal to sell the media query HARO tool to industry giant, Vocus (now Cision), Shankman has been busy, fueled by an acute case of ADHD. He refers to ADHD as his superpower, all of which has been memorialized through a book and series of projects, recognizing the gifts of having a faster brain than normal. In the interview, the effusive media industry icon shares how he copes with COVID-19 in New York City and his prediction for how America will get through it. Emmy-nominated TV host and journalist, Suzanne Sena, discusses Shankman’s recipe to use ADHD as a superpower, how to turn tough situations into advantages, and how Shankman’s rituals and routines guided him to ultimate confidence. The episode will be available on Apple Podcasts, and all major podcast platforms.

    As the creator of “The ShankMinds Breakthrough Network,” an online mastermind of thought leaders, business experts and changemakers, Shankman has expert advice on how to take down roadblocks to succeed in life and career. In the interview, he and Sena share productivity routines and discuss the eleven seconds of indecisiveness that almost killed him. Shankman tells Sena the incredible story that led to his creation of HARO, the quintessential guide to connecting journalists' story sources every day.

    Shankman’s book, Faster Than Normal: Turbocharge Your Focus, Productivity, and Success with Secrets of the ADHD Brain, compliments advice given in his podcast, “Faster Than Normal.” “You can’t control some situations, all you can do is control your reactions to the situations,” says the colorful and talkative Shankman. He continues with advice: “Breathe and say ‘Okay, this sucks; how am I going to get through it?’” Shankman quotes The Thomas Crown Affair: ‘Regrets, gentleman, are a waste of time, as is gloating.’”

    “I’ve been a fan of Peter’s productivity methods and strategies for years,” says Sena. “They don’t just apply to people with ADHD, they apply to any individual, any company, looking to maximize performance.”
