What Works: Dyslexic CEO

Great little story from about how a dyslexic CEO was able to build a successful $36 million business despite struggling to read and write.


- Hired a writer, drew ideas for business plans
- Use crayon and pencil to convey with ideas, meet with top executives to explain ideas to their departments
- Phone or personal meetings instead of email
- First names and personality or doodle physical traits to remember
- Tape record notes, tape record phone calls
- Franklin Talking Dictionary

For some middle, high, college, and beyond dyslexics, having a system for improving the efficiency of communication or learning may be more important than remediation.
