Laura speaks with change agents, entrepreneurs, investors, leaders, and donors to get them past the doubt and indecision that consign their great ideas to limbo. She delivers strategic thinking, well-honed wisdom, and catalytic perspective informed by decades of navigating change across the start-up, nonprofit, political, and philanthropic landscapes.           In this episode, Karen and Laura discuss:  Success Story of Laura  Commit to Get Leads  Reach out with meaning, not with checklists. Define success as to what it might mean to the other person, not some generic definition.  Consult to Sell  What are you trying to accomplish? Without knowing that, it doesn’t matter what you are trying to sell.  Connect to Build and Grow  It’s all about the journey – who you are in college is not who you are going to be forever.  Success Thinking, Activities and Vision  Put out public commitments – if you can name it, you can claim it.  Sweet Spot of Success        “Relationships are currency.
