Todays guest is not a normal type of guy. He does things his way, even to at the age of 61 going back to graduate school and getting a Masters in Creativity and Innovation, when to be honest the majority of us are glad that education finished in our teens.
What makes this even more unusual is that this is a guy who has started and run several successful companies, ranging from a novelty manufacturing company, to Terrasanti a natural wall product made from American Clay, which has won many awards over the last few years
He classes himself as a life term entrepreneur, but its the fascination for continued education that is so inspiring, as 10 years ago when he sold his novelty manufacturing company moved to a new town in California and spent the next 3 years getting a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in painting and mixed media from Sonoma State.
So, after a career of artistic business, creative enterprises and entrepreneurial ventures, he decided to delve into where creativity comes from, how to make innovation happen in organizations, and how anyone can tap into creativity, the number one quality that CEO’s now look for in new hires.
With a world changing this fast, business knows they must build a culture to sustain creativity and innovation to change... or die.
So where does our guest find his continued passion for new experiences?
And where does he get his ideas for the new and exciting from?
Well, lets find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots, the one and only Mr Rick Kantor.
