What is Innovation?

Posted by:

Are you missing out on your next million-dollar idea? I see it happen all the time. Why? Because that million-dollar (or hundred- or thousand-dollar) idea requires innovation—and most people don’t understand innovation. Because of that, they assume that they “just aren’t an innovative person.” All of that can change when you understand what innovation really is.

If you’re a video person, I lay it all out in the video below. If reading is more your thing, skip the video ...

How To Make Your Business Thrive Through A Crisis

Posted by:

During times of crisis (like, say, a global pandemic), some organizations (businesses, community groups, associations, etc.) will fold, while others will flourish. This has been true throughout history.

Let’s not beat around the bush. We are going through an unimaginably (at least until recently) difficult time — a time that requires innovative thinking. At some point, of course, the news will start to get better. But as of now, it just seems to be getting worse and worse.

In a rapidly changing and increasingly competitive world, the next breakthrough idea wins.

How to Be the Disruptor and Not the Disrupted

Posted by:

You’ve heard of FOMO, right? Fear Of Missing Out. It’s why we’re addicted to Facebook and Instagram and all the rest. It’s why we tell our devices to notify us the instant anything happens anywhere in the world. Because heaven forbid we’re not in the know!
