How does one start as a computer programmer and end up as a lawyer? How is a deeper perspective on history related to Maker Education? What is the difference between seeing the Mona Lisa on a website and seeing it in the Louvre? Our guest this week, Geoff Wiggs, has a few things to say about that. I also have a little bit of a “Don’t try this at home” story in the Great Inventor’s Secrets section. This is an official listener advisory message: Today’s podcast is not for the faint of heart. The material is top-notch, but prepare your sensibilities.
Welcome to the Table Top Inventing podcast where we discuss innovation, success, and the path to a good life for teens and those who guide them. We have a special treat for you today.

Mark Stoleson is the CEO at Legatum a global private investment fund based in Dubai–The United Arab Emirates. I love the way Mark frames his experience.

Let’s listen in for timeless wisdom from a life well-lived.
