EPISODE #63: Seeing “Something” and Connecting People
Guest: Phyllis Ellison
VP Partnerships and Program Development, Cortex Innovation Community
Steve Jobs observed that “Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they really didn’t do it, they just saw something…That’s because they were able to connect experiences they’ve had and synthesize new things.” Take that concept of connections one step further – to people connecting with people – and it becomes clear how the “something” that Phyllis Ellison saw has connected thousands of self-starters with other entrepreneurs and businesses, creating opportunities for people to interact and come together. And succeed.
In this week’s “Mental Health Matters” episode, you can make a connection with Phyllis Ellison, Vice President of Partnerships and Program Development with Cortex Innovation Community, as she talks with Tom Duff, LCSW about why connections are so important for entrepreneurs and how a place like Cortex Innovation Community not only provides the perfect environment for connecting the dots, but more importantly, connecting the people.
