“Enjoy the journey and don’t be summit obsessed.” - Amy Simpkins
Today's featured author is innovation catalyst, MIT-trained engineer, speaker and the "Queen of Big Ideas", Amy Simpkins. Amy and I talk about her book, growing through change and tons more!!
Constant learning keeps life interesting.
What’s important to you now may not be important to you in a different phase of your life.
“I think big thoughts.”
Spend some time in the confusion phase to get to the solution phase.

Who do you want to be?
Contrary to popular opinion, some engineers love hugs.

We need to allow ourselves to grow through change.
