Interview with Writer Frank South: From Hollywood to Doing Good

After listening to Frank South, the Hollywood writer and executive producer tell his ADHD story on our Business Brilliance call . . .  all that remains to be said is wow.

Frank had undiagnosed ADHD all through his successful “glamorous” lifestyle, and he walks us through his life, from high school to Hollywood and back again. His natural storytelling ability had Marcia, me, and our listeners captivated. We felt like we were on the roller coaster of life in the fast creative lane, right there with Frank.

As much as Frank’s life was exciting, it was also painful. Listening to him, we realize that money and fame might buy impressive cars, outfits, and a nice lifestyle for him and his family, but if something emotional is out of sync, none of that matters. With the support of his wife and children, he made some brave changes, and now he “works” his ADHD as a writer for ADDitudes Magazine and independent playwright.

Franks shares his  secrets to living a successful life with ADHD so that you can too!

  2. Hi Brenda,
    I know what you mean! This was a pretty powerful interview, wasn’t it? I’m so glad you enjoyed Frank’s story as much as we did. He is so open and honest about his life and feelings and relationships, I think that’s what makes us relate to him so much. Have you read any of his blog on ADDitude Magazine? His posts are really good. You can find him here: Thanks for listening and commenting — we appreciate you.
