October 17, 2019 – Carl Nordgren Presents “Becoming a Creative Genius (again) for Boomers and our older friends” and he will share what he is learning about how changes in our brains are inviting a major creative renewal and offer advice on how to fully benefit from those changes.

Carl Nordgren is a serial entrepreneur, a novelist, a teacher, and a creativity guide.

He was a member of the founding team for Cellular One of the Triangle, was the senior executive of Providence Journal Cellular, a company that built and operated over 20 Cellular One operating companies throughout the Southeast, and was a co-founder and CEO of FGI, a marketing services company that was on INC Magazine’s 100 Fastest Growing Companies two years in a row. He also helped found a semiconductor company, a sport magazine publisher, and was a Partner at Fusion Ventures, a small VC, where he ran their new business incubator that launched 5 businesses in 18 months.

In 2002 Duke asked Nordgren to teach a class on how to start a company. For the next 14 years he taught courses he designed to nearly 2500 students. While some classes were designed to help students become successful entrepreneurs, most were classes designed to help students grow their creative capacity and develop their entrepreneurial instincts and behaviors, qualities important in every activity throughout one’s life.

Recently he discovered research that shows that a 55+ brain is going through biological changes that invite a major creative renewal and is now focusing on “Boomers and our older friends” in his work.

He has published three novels based on his days as a fishing guide in NW Ontario during his high school and college years. Recently ‘Becoming a Creative Genius (again)’ was published.

He lives in Durham with his wife Marie, also an educator and entrepreneur, and they have raised three daughters.

October Breakfast Sponsors: Hannah Shanafelt, Hannah’s Home Health & Care Consulting and Heidi Hackney, The CAN-DO Life Coach
