Hudson – More than a decade ago, Hudson entrepreneur David Greenwood launched his own public relations (PR) firm. A self-proclaimed “traditional PR guy,” he could easily get his clients featured in the newspaper or land them television publicity. But as social media emerged, it changed the PR industry, and Greenwood found himself having to do more and more for each customer. Having grown up with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), the situation left him scratching his head, wondering how other entrepreneurs with ADHD juggle industry changes. His quandary gave him the idea to write a book on the topic. He did, and “Overcoming Distractions: Thriving with Adult ADD/ADHD” is due for release by Sterling Publishing Tuesday, Nov. 1.
