the Experience of Innovation


It is funny how told stories are of rags to riches but we want be careful on that terms. There are a lot of people who have been successful but didn’t really make a lot of money but have built success on different terms, and we want want to listen to them very carefully.

What experiences I’m I leading that others can tap off.
