The Keys to Creating a Life of Passion, Purpose and Possibility for Adults with ADHD

Only you can give yourself permission to take the first step toward a life of passion, purpose and possibility. In his debut book, Master Certified Coach, MCC, David Giwerc, president and founder of the ADD Coach Academy, shows readers how to understand, embrace and successfully manage ADHD. David’s unique and easy-to-follow approach helps readers pull back the curtain of ignorance that surrounds ADHD, illuminating a clear path forward.

Permission to Proceed: Creating a Life of Passion, Purpose and Possibility for Adults with ADHD details David’s proven method for regaining control of one’s life at home, at work and in the community.

• Recognize your unique brain wiring
• Define your own “brand” of ADHD, maximizing strengths and minimizing weaknesses
• Rediscover inspiration and motivation to pursue your passions
• Cultivate “habits of the heart” to achieve your life’s purpose

With hands-on exercises and visual models, this book is a must-read for people with ADHD and those who support them — friends, family, partners, co-workers and coaches. Give yourself permission to proceed toward a better life today!
