Welcome to the Main Thing Podcast! I’m your host, Skip Lineberg. Our special guest is a powerhouse thinker and connector. He’s as gifted in  crafting harmonies and melodies as he is in composing high-impact connections between action-oriented, natural-givers. Tune in to discover the power and impact of David Homan’s unique approach to relationships, connections and composing.


David Homan is a classical composer and connector, who built Orchestrated Connecting, a community of impact focused super-connectors whose relationship value is beyond comparison. David focuses on the interaction of access and impact, with a particular focus on areas such as climate change, mental health, investing in women and diverse founders, health and wellness, and philanthropy. You can find his music simply by asking Alexa to play it. David joins us today from New York, NY.


Settle into your symphony hall seat. Over the next 9 minutes, you will discover why David Homan is one of the wisest people I know.
