Innovation can be described as an invention, a life changing idea, a critique, a change, I think of innovation as a business partner.  You and it grow together in a relationship with the community around you.  You are always changing and adapting to be there for others, and to suit their needs.  You go through the highs and lows in economics to become the great thing you were changed to be.  You need it, and it needs you to thrive in your business.

          Innovation is also a tool, you use it to make things better, and not so outdated.  It grows on you like that handy pocket knife you carry in your pants.  You can trust it will do the next best thing at any time.  To innovate means to create, lie a child playing with play-doe at the table, only your imagination can hold you back.  Innovations were meant to inspire, and make people believe in the work again, to look at life and smile, like they used to in their younger days.

Innovation changes the world.  That is innovation.
