This is what we call a feel-good episode! Susan Rodgerson has an education in Fine Arts, but that’s all she will say about herself because she prefers talking about Artists for Humanity, an idea that started as a small and temporary side project. Because of her persistence and dedication, AFH grew over time, from a few participants and a 500 square feet studio to over 300 participants and a 10,000 square feet location that provides under-resourced teens the keys to self-sufficiency through paid employment in art and design. So many nuggets of wisdom are shared in this episode that will inspire artist-entrepreneurs from all walks of life. Enthusiasm, love, and benevolence describe well the overall tone of this episode.
