Meghan Blair, founder of Fogged In Bookkeeping, has always felt that she was the square peg trying to fit in a round hole. 

But it wasn’t until she was well into her adulthood, on a chance encounter, that she discovered the years of being a ‘misfit’ were actually signs of her neurodivergence.

Neurodiversity honors and celebrates the reality that not all people experience and interact with the world in the same way. In fact, it’s estimated that one in five people are neurodivergent.

Meghan has cracked the code of thriving in a neurotypical world as a person with ADHD. She has built and sold a successful accounting firm and learned valuable lessons in navigating neurodiversity as an owner, leader, manager, and service provider.

In this video, Meghan Blair and Ian Vacin share candid and inspiring stories on the topic of neurodiversity, and how you can embrace it to build an inclusive accounting firm that truly serves its people and clients.

Watch to learn more about how you can:

  • Be more educated on the topic of neurodiversity

  • Design systems at your firm that support everyone

  • Create a culture that embraces openness and diversity

  • Harness the power of neurodiversity to deliver exceptional client experiences
