SPOS #670 - Laura Gassner Otting Wants You To Be Limitless


Welcome to episode #670 of Six Pixels of Separation. Here it is: Six Pixels of Separation - Episode #670 - Host: Mitch Joel. The book Limitless is now a bestseller. It is time to have Laura Gassner Otting back on the show. Laura inspires people to push past the doubt and indecision that keep great ideas in limbo. She challenges her clients to think bigger and take on greater challenges that reach beyond their limited scope of belief. She delivers strategic thinking, well-honed wisdom, and perspective generated by decades of navigating change across the start-up, nonprofit, political, as well as philanthropic landscapes. Laura dares us all to find our true voice, and generate the confidence needed to tackle larger-than-life opportunities. Laura’s entrepreneurial edge has been well-honed over a 25-year career that started as a Presidential Appointee in Bill Clinton’s White House, where she helped shape AmeriCorps. She left a leadership role at the respected nonprofit search firm, Isaacson, Miller, to expand the startup Laura also founded and ran the Nonprofit Professionals Advisory Group, which partnered with the full gamut of mission-driven nonprofit executives, from start-up dreamers to scaling social entrepreneurs to global philanthropists. In 2015, Laura sold NPAG to the team that helped her build it, because she was hungry for the next chapter. Along the way, while serving on Hillary Clinton’s National Finance Committee, she was asked to do a TEDx talk which became so popular that it launched a speaking career. Laura's new book is Limitless - How to Ignore Everybody, Carve Your Own Path, and Live Your Best Life. Enjoy the conversation... Running time: 57:12. Hello from beautiful Montreal.
