Have you ever sent a text message and immediately wished you could recall it? Today’s guest, Maci Peterson invented the technology to do just that! She’s also the CEO and Co-Founder of On Second Thought, a which is the definitive delay recall mechanism for mobile communications platforms.

I met Maci years ago at a pitch competition (that she won, by the way) where she debuted her company On Second Thought. I remember being impressed with the way she rocked it, and she hasn’t slowed down since.

Plus, she’s a frequent lecturer, subject matter expert, and adviser on entrepreneurship, innovation, and diversity initiatives.
