All year, we’ve been meeting amazing young kids across Northeast Ohio who are entering the world of businesses. On The Sound of Ideas, we’ll have our very own Start-Up Kids Business Expo, where past young moguls and some new ones will share stories of getting great ideas off the ground. Then, we’ll meet some of the teachers who are helping create Cleveland’s future business leaders of tomorrow. And, Rick Jackson chats with singer/songwriter Sara Bareilles about writing the score for the musical, Waitress, hitting Playhouse Square tomorrow night.
