Today’s guest: Alex Gilbert
I’m a New Yorker, a Mets fan, a yogi, and a brunch enthusiast. I also have dyslexia and ADHD.
After spending my career working in leadership development, I decided to start a consulting and coaching business that will help adults with learning disabilities and/or ADHD who have been struggling in their careers. My business, Cape-Able Consulting, was created to help them navigate their day-to-day workloads so that they feel supported and are able to reach their highest potential.
My biggest goal in creating Cape-Able Consulting is to change the stigma surrounding learning disabilities/ ADHD by reminding people what they Cape-able of.
