During this roller coaster of emotions, I had an interesting phone call with Andy Kirchner about Innovation Ç and the goals they wanted to achieve with this team. This phone call led me to two amazing things. I stepped out of my comfort zone and signed up, without even thinking, for an online presentation that was held a couple of days ago. Second, I was so impressed by the team behind Innovation Ç, the positivity and contagious energy, that I decided to join the content team. Little did I know that taking these steps would lead me to several reflection moments.
