Why successful entrepreneurs are often dyslexic

It’s interesting when I read about successful entrepreneurs, to see just how many are dyslexic.

I also find it uplifting and motivating that a lot of these dyslexic entrepreneurs talk about how being dyslexic has helped them get to where they are today.

I know for myself that being dyslexic and choosing to be an entrepreneur has been the best decision I’ve ever made.  This is because I can align everything to my strengths and work within a boundary that I feel comfortable with.

During this blog, I want to go through a range of different skills that successful entrepreneurs have, especially when they are dyslexic.

It’s interesting when I think back to when I finished school all those years ago and it amazes me how far I have succeeded in my career compared to others I went to school with.

At the time when I finished I had received the lowest mark in my whole grade and I remember it being the talk of the school. Finishing with such a low grade and knowing I was dyslexic I felt really alone and uncertain as to what my future held for me.

Leaders Adapting to Different Learning Styles

I was talking to someone the other day about how many of my teachers at school didn’t understand the way I would learn and seemed to have an issue with me because of it.

During my years of making my way up the chain, I have had the opportunity to meet and observe a range of different people in different management roles. This ranged from CEOs, Regional and State Managers, Supervisors and Team Leaders.

Before starting my own Leadership Development Company, I always found it interesting to watch and observe different leaders in different organizations and see what their strengths and weaknesses were.

With my heart set on building a successful company and being a fantastic leader to my team, the last couple of years have been the most fascinating to me and helped me grow and learn.
