Innovation on Shark Tank

Innovation is all around us. From the light bulb above our heads to the carpet below our feet, everything started off as an idea in someone’s head and then developed through an innovative process to become the common things they are today. Recently, I’ve begun watching the show Shark Tank on ABC. Every episode, different […]

DIY Tutorials Project

Many of my blog posts over the last few months have been dealing with the ideas of innovation, motivation, and getting started, and all of these ideas have finally come together as we have officially started (and gotten the motivation) to embark on our […]
