"For most people, creativity is a serious business. They forget the telling phrase 'the play of ideas' and think that they need to knuckle down and work more. Often, the reverse is true. They need to play." – Julia Cameron

I was recently diagnosed with ADHD. Today, I want to share this part of my personal journey that has had a profound impact on my life. It's a topic close to my heart, and I believe it's essential to discuss mental health openly in our professional lives.
Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder affects approximately 2.5% of adults and 8.4% of children. The National Institute of Mental Health explains that ADHD presents in adults with the following symptoms:
- Inattention: Having difficulty paying attention
- Hyperactivity: Having too much energy or moving and talking too much
- Impulsivity: Acting without thinking or having difficulty with self-control
Can an individual be a good leader if they have ADHD?
My experience has shown me that leadership knows no bounds, and having ADHD does not define our potential.
In this week's newsletter, we are continuing to introduce readers to the incredible team we have at On Purpose Adventures.
On Purpose Adventures' founder, Ben-Jamin Toy, was introduced to Jen Chacon by Jimmy Sorrells, owner of Liberty Networking . He spoke at a few events in Greenville, South Carolina and didn't meet Jen when he was in town. A few weeks later Jimmy introduced them and Ben-Jamin asked Jen if she had more bandwidth. If she could take on more and she said yes. Jen felt like being a team building facilitator was a calling for her and we set to determining how to best utilize and promote Jen's skills.
We have a great team at On Purpose Adventures and I'm excited to have the opportunity to share more about them in this newsletter.

It's often said that failure is not fatal if you keep moving, it's merely a lesson. Let's dive into how we can embrace risk, learn from setbacks, and develop a resilient mindset.
Learning from Failure
One of the most significant benefits of failure is the opportunity to learn and grow. Each setback presents a chance to analyze what went wrong, identify areas for improvement, and adjust our approach.
