Generations are often a topic of discussion, but this time Josh and Megan discuss the naming of the past and next ones. Josh shares a dumpster fire list of business ideas that came after a random Google search. Megan encourages companies to be a benefit to their society and we talk about how soft skills make the difference in employment. We answer a listener letter about the difference between coaching and consulting.
Megan gets to yell about missed opportunities. Crowdsourcing for social movements is brilliant, and Josh shares a hilarious story about how a trebuchet could save us from the "wall". Our values are shifting, and we can crowdsource to save the world. It's hard to think of a 140 year old yarn company as being innovative, but they have the influencer thing down. We talk about an article that uses all of the words of our podcast title and it's really great. The free business idea could feed people- someone should really do that.

Voiceover Guy gives us some insight about himself, and Megan is creeped out by Walmart. Josh and Megan talk about inventions, sportsball, and a fantastic academic article (hush, yes that is a thing!) involving music. Additional Info: Walmart in your house is weird. http://www.denverpost.com/2017/09/22/walmart-grocery-deliver-drop-off-not-home/ Invent things and this company does the rest for you! https://www.entrepreneur.com/article/300900 ESPN is missing the point. https://www.nytimes.com/2017/05/16/business/media/espn-is-betting-on-big-personalities-to-restore-its-fortunes.html
