Show Notes

We're back with Susan Caruso of Sunflower Creative Arts in Florida in the US! We dig deep into this non profit organisation in this episode. Susan shares with us how she had to pivot and create new enterprises at Sunflower with the onset of a global pandemic, whilst also staying true to the organisation's values built around community. You'll hear about the challenges, and you'll also hear how there was time to reflect and make changes. More importantly you'll hear about the incredible impact of community. One of my favourite episodes on the podcast - enjoy!
