Everyone Has a Story...
And many of these stories are worth sharing.
Sitting at Toro Solao, a exquisite Spanish restaurant in Puerto Rico's Old San Juan district, we had the distinct honor of meeting and learning about a young lady who is literally changing the world. Andrea wasn't even our waitress. But seeing we had a question came over to help. What started as formal restaurant chatter soon turned into one of the most inspirational discussions. We soon learned that Andrea's waitressing gig was not her full-time job nor passion. Her joy and time was spent working on her not-for-profit organization, Silent Grace Foundation, helping those in need. To learn more go to www.silentgracefoundation.org. You can also follow her on twitter @Andrea_Isabel.
It's amazing what you can learn when you listen to the people you meet. And there are a lot of people out there...all who can teach you something. That is one of the beautiful advantages of the Learning Explosion--the ability to learn from people all around the world without necessarily having to travel there. Sharing, learning, and ideation is taking place all the time. How we choose the participate is up to us.
