Creative problem solving, an ability to grasp the big picture, and accomplishing audacious goals are a few of the traits shared by many people with dyslexia. Increasingly, dyslexia is being viewed not just as a disability to overcome, but also as a strength that provides advantages in the working world. Industry leaders having dyslexia include famous names such as Charles Schwab, Ted Turner, Richard Branson, and David Boies. A recent study found that 35% of American entrepreneurs are dyslexic.
