What a unique, and insightful opportunity it was to experience Ann Hiatt's personal and professional experiences working with Amazon, and beyond! I found it most interesting seeing how her experiences have changed, and evolved her own way of thinking, igniting her to follow her intuition, and not be afraid to ask the "dumb questions!" It was also clear that her access to these professionals inspired and impacted her own endeavors, making me most invested to see where she goes, and what she does next! Thank you, Ann, and thank you, Elevate! Five Stars!

This is another interesting course. I enjoyed it as she shared her experiences at Amazon and Google. I feel she's very brave for leaving this big companies and starting her own in a completely different clime. Some people will just get comfortable where they are. I like when she said "uncomfortably excited".
