As this concept of The Renaissance Period (TRP) was forming, a few events were taking place:
the Covid pandemic was spreading…
shopping moved primarily online and the global shipping crisis was wreaking havoc on the availability of menstrual products….
Then I finally began reading a book that had been on my shelf for months. The Medici Effect: Breakthrough Insights at the Intersection of Ideas, Concepts, and Cultures, is a 2004 book written by Swedish-American entrepreneur Frans Johansson. Johansson is a futurist, author, and professor of business innovation at the Stockholm School of Economics. In his book, Johansson discusses the idea that “smart people” create new products or concepts. He does this in particular by discussing how ideas cross many boundaries and fissures to enter into human consciousness.

…and finally, IT happened.
Yes, THAT thing.
The OG Renaissance Woman, Beyoncé, announced her latest album will be released on 29th July 2022. This is music to my ears, et toi?
Oh, and the official album title is Renaissance act i
Ok universe, we’re here for it. It’s time for this renaissance.
Editor’s note: We are NOT in anyway affiliated with Beyoncé…. But great minds think alike. Call it the ‘Medici Effect’!
