1. It is important to find a group of fellow innovators to bounce ideas off each other. Sometimes, it can feel like you are on an island but you are not. There are a lot of innovators throughout the industry doing amazing things. Go find user groups to form community and get inspired.
2. When implementing a new workflow, proper change management is key. Take the time to learn the motivation of people wanting to change and arguably more importantly those that are resistant to change. When you can address the concern and motivation across every level you will be more successful.
3. I loved the innovative mindset that Eric brings to the table in wanting to constantly explore what is out there technologically in order to bring it to others. That mindset is what helps to move the industry forward.
