Shawn Smith joins me on the podcast this week. Shawn has his Master’s in Education and Counseling. He is the proud founder and CEO of Don’t dis-my-ability Consultation Services, an innovative, multi-faceted coming specializing in the emerging field of neurodiversity. He is a counselor, psychotherapist, and national award-winning entrepreneur.
Diagnosed with ADHD Inattentive Type at age 30, Shawn struggle through every level of the public education system prior to his diagnosis. It took Shawn 32 attempts to earn the 18 credits required to graduate high school. Medication gave Shawn’s brain a jump start it needed to wake from 30 years of slumber, taking his thought process from dial-up to fiber-op.
In this conversation, you will hear Shawn talk about his company and the services he provides. He explains why his company being located in a cooperative creates a constructive environment for his work. Shawn discusses his background, his struggles in school, his diagnosis, and why the entrepreneurial life fits him well.
