Synopsis

Do you have trouble focusing or staying motivated to complete your goals? Does sticking to a schedule sound impossible? Over a million Americans struggle every day with ADHD or other learning disabilities. Those with ADHD face different challenges like self-doubt and imposter syndrome, hyper-focusing on the wrong things, time mismanagement, distractibility and so much more. In this book, you will discover the ways the author was able to conquer his disability along with insights and strategies for how to use them to achieve your own goals.

In "I’m Not an Expert, Yet", Myk Klemme shares his experience growing up with ADHD and the lessons and strategies that worked for him to stay focused and nurturing his curiosity and creativity without getting sidetracked. After reading this book, you'll be more informed on what ADHD is, how to set realistic goals, and how to harness your disability to live your best life.

The book will cover topics such as:

- What is ADHD and its typical symptoms & challenges?
- How to inspire your curiosity without getting sidetracked
- How to use simple strategies for staying focused and to achieve your goals

The stigma of having a learning disability can make finding help and resources difficult and many simply give up. Myk Klemme hopes that by sharing his experience growing up with ADHD and overcoming it, other people will be inspired to conquer their own challenges.

Atmosphere Press

Atmosphere Press is an independent full-service publisher for books in genres ranging from non-fiction to fiction to poetry to children's picturebooks, with a special emphasis on being an author-friendly approach to getting a book into the world. We're professional, honest, and kind.

Here’s what we stand for:

Honesty: because our mission is to be author-friendly, that means always giving honest advice about the ins and outs of the authorial life. We are dedicated to sticking by one of our founding precepts: “if I were the author, what would I want to know?”

Transparency: publishing is rife with dodgy behavior, from predatory vanity presses who promise the moon to traditional presses who make book changes without the author’s permission. We’re dedicated to letting you see the wizard behind the curtain, so you can rest easy that everything’s on the up and up.

Professionalism: with decades of combined years of writing, editing, designing, and publishing experience, our staff knows the ins and outs of the industry, and will be responsive and helpful. And of course, we will only publish books that truly contribute something wonderful to the world.

Kindness: as an author-friendly press, we take the word “friendly” seriously. A good publisher shouldn’t be just a business partner, but should be full of people you’d want to invite to dinner. Whether it be making a good joke or allaying your worries about being an author, kindness is our hallmark.

Making Your Book Awesome: we really can’t settle for anything less. We want our authors and their readers to be blown away when they first hold that book in their hands. It needs to look good inside and out, and feel good to the touch. And, of course, the words need to be top-notch, and our editors are devoted to making that the case.
