I'm an eternal optimist who clarifies complexities so that we realize the power we have to create the kind of world we actually want to live in, but I can't do it alone. So hop into the rabbit hole with me and let's explore how to bring the ideal to life.
How can I be more organized?!
Melissa is a hopeful who simplifies organizing and she runs a business called Hopeful Simplicity where she helps people find organization systems that fit into their life and bring their home team together. As someone who is constantly a work in progress when it comes to organizing my space and ideas, Melissa brings the hope that I, or anyone else, really can be more organized. |

Roundtable Discussion - In Ynternational, we Start with Why
For the kick-off episode I thought it was important to pay tribute to some friends in an international community of thought leaders who know the value of Starting with Why. The Ynternational (Why International) community was spawned off connections made inside workshops we had each attended on Simon Sinek's platform of live online classes.

From a WhatsApp group, to Discord server, to WYRED, a free 3 day international summit with no budget and no sponsors...and no asking people for money... just pure value add [ http://wyred.live ] I'm humbled to be part of a group of thought leaders who've inspired me to keep the conversations going through this podcast. In this episode we start with why and talk more about how we came together and the future of The Curious Idealist.

Disclaimer: This one is a little heavy and it took some vulnerability (and encouragement, thanks friend) to get this one out here. There is a lot of good that can come from our more difficult experiences. Today, I share some learning from one of mine.
My name is Angel, and I am a Curious Idealist...
I am addicted to diving deeper into topics than most people might be comfortable with. The intent is to dig out actionable things we can all do communicate better, lead better, love better...really just be better.
Because I'm an idealist, I know we can do better than we have been. So I'll ask the questions, I'll share the learning, and at the end of the day, the goal is to put a little good out into the world, and have some fun in the process.
