Many of us assume great innovators are a rare breed, but studies have shown that is not the case. Consider the story of entrepreneur Madam C.J. Walker, born Sarah Breedlove, who promoted a line of beauty products for people of color early in the 20th century. In spite of the uncertainty she faced, she went on to become the first female self-made millionaire. Modern brain research has shown how each of us can learn innovation skills. Whether we feel called to tap into those skills or not in the midst of the pandemic, we can thrive and grow in new ways.
