Gareth speaks with tech entrepreneur, business coach, cryptocurrency CMO and TEDtalk thought-leader, Jonathan Macdonald, the Sunday Time Bestselling Author of Powered By Change – his 5th book – who has recently published his 6th book, The Rise of Advanced Thought. They discuss the common business paradox of how to apportion sufficient time to exploration of new designs and ideas, whilst also maintaining revenue from continued exploitation of established products or services.

By contrast, startup businesses focus on the exploration of new ideas and innovations, in order to penetrate a market with interesting new value-propositions.
