How to have breakthrough ideas

Breakthrough ideas are increasingly becoming a top-tier asset in today’s economy. They help us with everything from consistently generating viral blog articles to being able to solve problems at your work to having the next business idea that totally disrupts an entire industry—and everywhere in between. If you’re looking to set yourself apart and make valuable contributions wherever you are, cultivating the ability to see things in new ways or find new solutions to problems will help you do just that.

This course will equip you with the tools, strategies, and information you need to confidently move toward having breakthrough ideas on whatever you put your mind to.
