Welcome to the Beyond 6 Seconds podcast, where we share extraordinary stories from everyday people. Each episode features inspiring stories of life and creativity, triumph and struggle. I interview people who are starting their own businesses, giving back to their communities, and working with exciting new technologies to advance our world. We also talk about specific ways that our listeners can help support them and their work, so that their stories can continue to evolve.  Who knows, their stories may even provide you some extra inspiration to develop your own talents and passions!
