"I'm juggling a family of five, a herd of pets, social compulsions galore, a mortgage -- oh, and two small businesses at very different stages of development. Some call it entrepreneurship; I call it creating a living from doing what I love with an ADHD brain. I don't even know if that makes sense; it's late and I just ate a Dove bar sandwiched between Doritos, so I might be high on MSG."
