The Sage Advice Podcast is dedicated to the possibility that entrepreneurs continue the work of creation. We celebrate them by allowing them to tell their stories and share their knowledge with others. In doing so we energize the success of businesses around the world through the imagination of our people and the power of technology.

Technology has changed our behaviour to the point where the human connection has become a premium. Just look around a busy restaurant. There are probably more people looking at their devices than having conversations with those at their tables. And you’re probably not surprised.
