04 May 377: Laura Gassner Otting – Learning the PLAY BIGGER [and make your own luck!]
Today… our guest is Laura Gassner Otting. She’s one of my favorite humans.
Her life has been a wild ride… BUT that ride has helped her to clarify that her SUPERPOWERS are:
- Identifying greatness in others…
- Helping them to get unstuck…
- Achieving extraordinary results…
She’s served in the White House as a Presidential Appointee… she’s been an executive… she’s founded, ran and sold her own global search firm… and now she’s a bestselling author and a speaker on stages around the country!
She’s a frequent contributor to Good Morning America and the TODAY Show, as well as the Harvard Business Review, and Oprah Daily! And Laura’s 3 books have all been Wall Street Journal Bestsellers!
Her BRAND NEW BOOK is called Wonderhell – Why success doesn’t feel like it should and what to do about it!” It’s incredible and I can’t wait to dive into it… so let’s do this!
