Vladaly ,

Amazing content! Super helpful!!

Really enjoy listening to your podcasts.

Salvatore Demma ,

Are you asking yourself the same questions?

Albert Einstein said that "we cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we had when we created them."

In essesnce, we need to ask ourselves new questions in order to spark reflection and thinking that will allow us to grow. Listening to the canvas series is a reflection in and of itself. After listening to a few episodes I automatically began asking myself new questions that resulted in actions being taken.

If you listen to podcasts already, but keep asking yourslef the same boring questions, this is the show you need to listen to. Every episode is thought provoking and will challenge you to adopt new habits, habits that will allow you to solve problems, better yourself, your company and become the best version of you.

Enjoy
-Sam
