By | Uncategorized | No Comments

75% of people surveyed believe that they’re not living up to their creative potential. A study published in Psychological Science may have an explanation. They found that the more our brains are overloaded with juggling our various responsibilities, the less room we have for creativity.

At BSI Labs, we’re excited to see what creative solutions you will discover for your business challenges. Contact us to get started.
