" I know both Meridith and Mary. Truth be told, I worship at the alter of Meridith and Mary. Knowing that, you may be inclined to take my recommendation of their book “Who Comes Next,” as an over-the-top hyperbolic review by a rabid fan. But nothing could be further from the truth. I know the two of them because I’ve seen them both present their ideas and realized that they were the real deals. In fact, I saw Meridith present in Houston in February 2020 and she confirmed everything I already thought of her and her big giant brain. The two of them together is almost too much to wish for -- so much brilliance in one little place.

You’ll thank me. I promise. "
