My name is Lisa Nichols, and I have spent the last 24 years as both the CEO of Technology Partners and as the mother to Ally, our daughter with Down syndrome. Down syndrome occurs when someone is born with an extra chromosome, but for Ally, her “something extra” goes beyond her DNA. She is one of the funniest, kindest, mostly joyful people you have ever met. Learning from Ally has taught me to look for the “something extras” in everyone I encounter. Join me as I interview leaders from around the world as they share their stories and show us what it takes to influence, encourage, and be a true leader in our daily lives. Welcome to Something Extra.

Something Extra = Extra Special Insight

Lisa Nichols generously leverages her unique insight from personal and professional challenges to provide listeners access to the thoughts and advice of business and community leaders. She brings C-suite leaders (in St. Louis and nationwide) on to your phone/desktop for an accessible, educational, and enjoyable conversation. A great series!

Inspired and encouraged!

Both inspirational and educational, Lisa and the people in her network bring us a world of insight from their experience as game-changers in their industries. I’m also grateful to learn how those with Down Syndrome possess many “somethings extra” beyond chromosomes. I’m always eager to catch the next episode and learn more about recognizing something extra in all interactions.
