Entrepreneur, author and speaker Peter Shankman will be making his third appearance in Delaware on March 7 at Wilmington University in New Castle.

Shankman is the founder of Help A Reporter Out (HARO), a platform that connects journalists with sources worldwide. Less than two years after he founded HARO in his apartment in 2008 it was acquired by Vocus, where he is currently vice president. He is also founder and CEO of The Geek Factory, a social media, marketing and PR strategy firm in New York City.

He is also known for making his Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) work to his advantage.

If you haven’t seen Shankman speak before, here’s a sampling:

The event, “An Evening with Peter Shankman: Put Your Own Oxygen Mask on First,” is free and open to the public.

Details of the startup-focused talk:

Entrepreneurship is an exciting road, but it can be a lonely one as well. In this honest and open talk, Peter Shankman—best-selling author, entrepreneur, and social media phenomenon—shares his successes, his failures, and what he needs to do every day to make sure he stays on track and not imploded on the side of the road.

Peter will share:

  • 5 “must dos” that equate to success
  • 10 habits of successful entrepreneurs
  • 8-minute activities to take care of yourself
  • Why being open is more beneficial than not sharing
  • How to build your trusted support system
