Episode Summary

The idea that genius is born only through nature and otherwise cannot be taught or made has been spoon-fed to us for decades. Either we have the gift of genius, or we don’t. But Allen Gannett, tech entrepreneur and author of The Creative Curve, has proved the notion simply false.

In this episode, you will find your jaw dropping to the floor as Gannett reveals the science and secrets behind achieving breakout commercial success. It’s not as complicated as you may think!

He quickly de-bunks the myth that creativity is born not made and reassures us all that if you are not born a creative genius it does not mean you can never become one.

By breaking down “the creative curve” — the point of optimal tension between the novel and the familiar – Gannett will leave you with the mindset, skillset and toolset to better engineer mainstream success in any field!
