Throughout the holidays, GoFundMe will shine a spotlight on hundreds of kid heroes who are turning their compassion into action and making a difference in their communities, including Walt, Amiah, Khloe, Paul & Ashley.

Lessons From The Road: Bringing Musicianship and Performing Into The Office by Todd Pasternack - 168.06.RoadLessons - ChangeThis
“We often look towards established business leaders when seeking out new ideas to inspire us. Their advice and stories re-energize us, bringing the hope of discovering a greater awareness of where our careers can evolve to, or how our businesses can operate with fresh approaches to drive growth. We dig to uncover nuggets of wisdom from these well-known leaders to embrace and adopt into our everyday lives. But perhaps there’s an unexpected type of leader to draw inspiration from.
Have you ever looked at the way bands and music artists operate—at various levels of success—and found parallels to the ways that businesses need to constantly innovate, grow and empower their teams to get the best out of them? Or how the power of listening can open up new and unexpected opportunities?

As a former professional musician turned technology executive, I’ve seen and lived these parallels between the stage and office and put them into practice. There are more connections than you may think.”

The Calf-Path by Sam Foss - Poems | Academy of American Poets
A moral lesson this might teach
Were I ordained and called to preach;

For men are prone to go it blind
Along the calf-paths of the mind,

And work away from sun to sun,
To do what other men have done.

They follow in the beaten track,
And out and in, and forth and back,

And still their devious course pursue,
To keep the path that others do.

They keep the path a sacred groove,
Along which all their lives they move.

But how the wise old wood gods laugh,
Who saw the first primeval calf.

Ah, many things this tale might teach—
But I am not ordained to preach.

Americas Greatest Makers | Great Makers of Old Lead to Paths of Gold
We here at Americas Greatest Makers write articles on technology and its many facets. We write about current technologies that are affecting us as well as future technologies that are looking to break in. Finally, one last thing that we see very important and write about is the great creators of old. Through these articles, we get to discover the people who brought certain technologies into the fore, and the qualities they share that future inventors and makers can emulate as well.

Without these past makers, we wouldn’t be where we are today. And without the future makers, who knows where our paths would go?
