Each of us has the capacity to spot opportunities, invent products, and build businesses – even $100 million businesses. We just have to know how to crack the code.

Strategic adviser Amy Wilkinson presents the keys to turning ideas into enduring enterprises in a discussion of her new book. From interviews with 200 of today’s leading entrepreneurs, including the founders of eBay, Under Armour, Chipotle, LinkedIn, Tesla Motors, JetBlue Airways, and Dropbox, she has distilled six fundamental strategies that helped them rise to the top. Creators, she finds, are not born but made. They work at it, sharing skills that can be learned, practiced, and passed on. Wilkinson passes them along to you.

Co-presented by the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation.

But a comprehensive list of must-dos in Kansas City and the surrounding area also includes such lesser-known attractions as ghost tours at Belvoir Winery in nearby Liberty; the fusion of dance, aerial acrobatics, fashion, and live music in a performance by the imaginative ensemble Quixotic; and the eclectic collection of bracelets, brooches, and other adornments at Leila’s Hair Museum in Independence.

Longtime journalist Traci Angel walks through an array of Kansas City’s bucket-list experiences, offering the best day-trip destinations, draws for out-of-towners, and offbeat pleasures in a discussion of her new book.
