Our show is a tribute to a woman who was called a connector. You’ll see why and learn some of her secrets to making lasting connections.

It’s a strange back-to-school season. A lot of firsts.

[Mary-Lynn] We want to share with you a story George shared with his students in his Entrepreneurial Finance class at the best school in the world – the University of Illinois.
