Can You Be Awesome For $1,000?

What does it mean to be awesome?

Roanne Lee - Dean of the Cincinnati chapter of the Awesome Foundation

The Awesome Foundation, started in Boston in 2009, set out to discover just that.  The Foundation provides one-time $1,000 grants, with no strings attached, to people who can create – in their words - "flashes of micro-brilliance."

The Awesome Foundation has chapters all over the world and just recently started one in Cincinnati.  I got to meet with Roanne Lee, Dean of the Cincinnati Chapter of the Awesome Foundation, to find out more.
