Favorite podcast on creativity!

The podcast provides great content bridging the framework of design thinking from IDEO and real business applications from entrepreneurs and innovators from all over the world. It has changed my way of thinking around business building. It’s so much rewarding to learn about creativity and value adding for communities and society, meanwhile building a great business out of it. Recommend everyone who’s aspired to create a business to listen!

practical tips for work

On several of these episodes I find myself taking notes and learning things to try out at work.

Also like how they often answer questions about how to advance new ideas/change things up.

I love discovering new ideas here

I appreciate the variety of episodes, the super practical takeaways, and Suzanne and Coe Leta’s sincere humility - it’s obvious that they only bring on guests that are authentic and truly care about being a positive force in this world.
