About Episode

This means that for the motivated individual, someone who wants to start a potentially lucrative business with a minimum of investment in the necessary resources. Car detailing has proven particularly popular during the pandemic, since it gives the business owner the ability to travel to their clients to clean and make various small improvements to their vehicles.

While the initial investment for car detailing is simple, it should be clear that this is also a very competitive that demands a lot in the way of hard work. If you’ve ever wanted to learn more about this industry, or if you really need an exceptional car detailing company in the Santa Clarita Valley region, you’re going to love today’s episode!

Ask Ignite: How Living With ADD & ADHD Can Become Your Superpower
Ask Ignite: How Living With ADD & ADHD Can Become Your Superpower.

Normally we talk about the advice we would give to clients from topics we are experts on, or have guests come on the show. But today I wanted to share something I have not mastered, nor can it completely be mastered, rather it’s something that I myself battle with daily. I want to share with you something near and dear to my heart, the topic of ADD and ADHD. While this condition and I use that term lightly, is normally looked at as a hindrance or negative for the vast majority both in if you are living with it or know of someone that does.

I chose to look at this as what I reference as a superpower. This journey and part of my story go back to 2015 when we had our oldest son tested and came back diagnosed with ADD and ADHD. As I think any parent would, you start researching the unknown and look at how this diagnosis will influence your child and into the future. Along this path of learning, I discovered that I myself was more than likely affected with this same condition as medical research shows that it is usually passed down from one or both of the parents. So I went out and got myself tested and sure enough, I too had this same condition. Sure I spent a little bit of time wallowing in my sorrows thinking this was a bad thing and what my future could have been like had I known or gotten medication sooner.
