When Jackson first met Arlinda Moriarty, she was a guest on her talk show. They have since built a relationship and Jackson recognized Moriarty as Entrepreneur of the Year in 2009. When developing the GOALS conference. Moriarty was a natural choice as keynote speaker, having overcome her own obstacles.

According to Web MD, adults with ADHD may have difficulty with time management, organizational skills, goal setting and employment. They may also have problems with relationships, self-esteem and addictions.

ADHA affected Moriarty’s marriage and her business and many women could have let this obstacle defeat them. Moriarty however, has grown her home health care business in to a multi-million dollar business with more than 400 employees in Pennsylvania and Georgia.
