It is generally agreed upon that entrepreneurship is the engine that drives an economy upwards and is primarily responsible for its growth.Entrepreneurs create jobs, bring better and more affordable products and services to the marketplace, resulting in greater societal health, overall wealth and a vastly improved standard of living. And, while we treasure the entrepreneur, one needs not start their own business in order to be one. One can be entrepreneurial within a company setting (often called “intrapreneurs”) and can lead from anywhere they happen to be positioned.

I look for collaborations where brands can share resources, extend their reach and give customers an experience they will want to share with others. I am currently partnering with IBM Futurists and a few brands and startups along with keynotes where I can engage executives transforming their organizations for an abundant future.

Inspiration is defined as: The action or power of moving the intellect or emotions or The act of influencing or suggesting opinions.
When it comes to inspiring customers, you have to think about their mindset and where the are in the buying process. This is something I like to call “Six Degrees of Separation”. These include:
