The Mosaic with Daniel Bruce Levin
Sunday, January 27th at 8pm ET/5pm PT

Daniel Bruce Levin walked away from an opportunity to run a business that was a household name in order to hitchhike around the world to find happiness and inner peace.  The people he met along his journey remind him a lot of the characters in The Mosaic.  For most of his life, Levin felt different.  He saw things others did not see and thought in ways that were unlike the ways of his peers.  It made him feel alone and isolated, and though he knew how to play the game and interact with others well, he never felt he was the same as them.  This all changed when he started to work with leaders seeking innovation.  Suddenly, it was his ability to see differently that made him a sought-after commodity.  https://themosaiconline.com/ http://danielbrucelevin.com/
