HOFFMAN: Notice how she keeps turning problems — in this case, piles of useless clothing —  into solutions: sources of funding. That’s why I call the best entrepreneurs “infinite learners”.

  • minute 80.40 is Joost d’Hooghe‘s favorite; “pay it forward” – succesful organisations and individuals depend on the power of their diverse ecosystems, invest in your network and create width and depth
