Limitless & Success with Laura Gassner Otting

By: | |

“Our definition of success has to continue to grow, change, and evolve as we continue to grow, change, and evolve.”

Laura Gassner Otting

Laura joins me today to share her wisdom on success and being limitless. She defines success and explains why we need to allow our own definition to change as we grow.

She describes why we need to plan for success and why planning for failure gets us stuck.
