Most of us have been in a situation where we didn't have all of the answers-- when we didn't know what to do next or where to turn for help. In this episode, Ned talks with the team at Wisdo.com, a new online community that connects users looking for guidance with people who've gone through something similar. Wisdo is described as a search engine for life experiences, powered by those who've been there. In fact, keep an eye out for Dr. Hallowell's ADHD video on Wisdo's website soon!
