To cap off the day, the trend hunter himself Jeremy Gutsche shared insights into being innovative and how to overcome what he calls the three traps that prevent innovation:

1) Success makes us complacent
2) We become repetitive
3) We are protective of our ideas are unwilling to consider new ones

He also shared a powerful story of his father whose career epitomizes Jeremy’s main themes that the secret to success is at the intersection of hard work and overlooked opportunity.
