Awakening Innovations

anchor.fm/awakening-innovations
On this podcast we speak with innovators, entrepreneurs, and “just cool people” with a heart to change the world. We talk to those who think differently and who leave “the box” behind. As Albert Einstein said, “We can’t solve our problems using the same thinking we used when we created them.” We also speak with people who have gone through troubled times and come out the other side. As the quote goes, “I love people who have been through the fire and walk back in carrying water for those still going through it.” (modified from Stephanie Sparkles)
