April Rinne - Finding Your Superpower Through Uncertainty
Show Notes

I spoke to April Rinne at the Shahjah Entrepreneurship Festival late last year, where I was invited to speak about happiness in these uncertain times. April and I got in touch through LinkedIn, and I was blown away by her work. Her writing is not instructive but more reflective and allows readers to choose from whatever superpower they think will help them through uncertainty.

April Rinne is the author of 'Flux: 8 Super Powers for Thriving in Change.' She is also a World Economic Forum Young Global Leader and ranked one of the “50 Leading Female Futurists” in the world by Forbes.  She is also a mental health advocate and has devoted her career to advising individuals and organizations on how to navigate a world of constant change.
