October 25, 2021
In this episode, Kohila Sivas, founder of MathsCodes, and professional maths interventionist, talks to us about her life-affirming relationship with maths, and how it turned her life around after a teen mental health crisis. We talk about
- how maths is a metaphor for many of the challenges faced by entrepreneurs
- how a bad start in maths can hold us up as adults, but doesn't need to and
- why Albert Einstein's problem-solving advice means so much to her.
