On today’s show we talk about a subject that so many want to master, but few understand where to start. The topic of today’s show is Creativity. Now, you might be asking yourself, how can I develop the right idea at the right time, and today’s guest is one of the leading experts in that field. This might be hard to believe, but Allen Gannett is only 27 years old. And as soon as you hear this interview, you won’t believe the amount of knowledge and insights he brings to the topic. In fact, Allen is so bright that at age 24, he was selected onto the Forbes 30 under 30 list. Additionally, he has created a highly successful business that’s in the field of big data analytics. For the research of his book, Allen interviewed a billionaire, one of the wealthiest members of Congress, and even CNBC host, Andrew Ross Sorkin. Click here to purchase Allen’s book: The Creative Curve.
