Until very recently, many sperm banks rejected donors that had dyslexia - it was perceived to be a disability. However, with 35% of entrepreneurs being dyslexic and 40% of self-made millionaires - including Richard Branson, Anita Roddick, Steve Jobs, Jo Malone, Walt Disney, Holly Tucker, Albert Einstein, and countless more - this has made me reflect on my own dyslexia.
I’ve found that the skills that dyslexia amplifies (creativity, intuition, perseverance, empathy etc) are in-fact my superpowers, the reason I was born to be an entrepreneur!
My diagnosis means I know my strengths and accept my challenges. I have more confidence in my talents - my earnings have grown accordingly and I strategize and ask for help with things I find difficult. This includes getting help with my bookkeeping and increasing my cleaner’s hours. I mostly only remember belongings I can see, so have shelves not drawers, and less stuff! I’ve never been more successful, happier or calmer.
