Episode 230 : Weekend Special: Explore The Space In Conversation

Featured Guest: Startover

  • May 01, 2021

“Trust the science, look after the people next to you, & work hard”

In this special edition of Explore The Space, I sit down for a conversation with my dear friend and former babysitter Susie Rolander. Susie is a literacy specialist with a special skill set around on-line learning, and she is currently pursuing her doctorate in Leadership for Change. She is also a co-founder of Startover, which is a meeting place for experts and people seeking to make positive changes. I was fortunate to be Susie’s guest on one of Startover’s live shows. This was really fun.
