The Pioneer’s Path is brought to you by the Terraform Group.
The Pioneer’s Path show is designed to share the stories of established Visionaries, including their triumphs and defeats in order to encourage that group of undiscovered Visionaries who have so much untapped potential to literally change an industry, create jobs, and impact their communities once they figure out who they are, and how they could create massive value for an organization once they do. The Pioneer’s Path is hosted by Tim O’Connor and brought to you by the TerraForm Group.
