I sit down with Gail and Bruce Montgomery to talk about the impact the improv mindset can have on an organization.
We cover the neuroscience and brain effects and disruption of improvisation, NASA, GoreTex, the Ted Talk "Your Brain on Improv" by Dr. Limb, and the work Meridith Grundei.
Gail and Bruce will also be having a book signing on Saturday February 22nd, 2020 in Evergreen, Colorado. For more info, visit bit.ly/ImprovBook.
I met Anna, founder of Ship Sunshine and Drop Ship Like It's Hot at the 2019 Denver Startup Week, where she and Margaret Davidson from BokkBaby talked about building philanthropy into their businesses.
Anna takes us through how her personal practice of sending gifts to friends expanded into a business - making being thoughtful actionable. We talk about the startup's mission the first year - to survive, then the isolation of being a founder, and her productivity practices, the power hour, and The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin.
We may actually record our Think and Drink session!

I'm also volunteering for the Colorado Technology Association, for the C-Level at Mile High on March 26. Learn more here: https://coloradotechnology.org/c-level-mile-high/. If you are in technology in Denver, you need to attend this unique event.
Like many episodes of this podcast, the idea starts with something small, but not insignificant. During our first conversation, Sheevani Desai mentioned her Impressionista blog. In The Marriage Scoreboard Sheevani writes about the concept and perhaps unconscious practice of a scoreboard in marriage.
I was intrigued by this, but also with how well written, insightful, and candid - and fair - the idea was captured. I knew this would be a compelling, fascinating conversation around balancing dreams, goals, reality.
A small favor - if you enjoyed this episode, please share it with one person.
