Episode 23 (2).png

In this special episode leading up to our official launch we've invited a very special guest and author, Alan Briggs, to talk about the "why" behind the SCLP and his latest book, Everyone's a Genius: Unleashing Creativity for the Sake of the World.

Show Notes


  • Apprenticeships are making a comeback. Look for hunger and chemistry in an apprentice.

  • Become a genius spy. Watch what people do when they don’t have any responsibility to do it.

  • Apprentice from your kids. Let them educate you on what they’re interested and passionate about.
