Innovation = changing things

When I was younger and went with my parents to all family get togethers all the grown ups would sit at a table and talk/rant about politics (you get the picture!). My mom would ask me why I didn’t go and sit with my dad so that I could learn something, to which my response was:


Because all they do is talk about the same things over and over again and never do anything about it.


And so then and there my parents figured out I wasn’t into talking, I actually wanted to change things and wasn’t afraid to do it myself. But living in Mexico brings all sorts of challenges, the copycat mindset is present everywhere and one who tries to create progress is immediately pulled back or even worse killed.

Contrary to what others believe I think Mexico is ripe for innovation and it presents all the challenges that us change makers get worked up for.
