I love that. I love people who are dreamers, thinkers, and doers. Mitch: Right? It’s a great crew. And as we talked about before we hit record it’s an awesome, awesome crew. We tend to totally offend grumpy people so there’s just a lot of love here ’cause that’s what we do, I love it. Laura: Fantastic. Mitch: I could go through the list of successes that you’ve had in your life, I mean you were appointed by President Bill Clinton to help shape AmeriCorps, you’ve helped grow startups and non-profits, you’ve been interviewing globe changers for this book, it’s a bestseller, all of those things, but somebody might look at you and go, “Wait you’ve never felt stuck.” How about you? What’s a time in your life where you Laura personally felt stuck? Laura: Boy where do I start? You know it’s really interesting this idea when people look at you and they go, “Oh she’s got it all together. He’s got it all together.” Cause I really do think that people see us as the fully formed person we are today, and number one, I hope that I’m not fully formed, I hope there’s still evolution and change and growth that’s going to happen, because boy it would pretty boring to stop here, right? Mitch: Exactly. I’m done. Laura: Been so fun so far. Mitch: I’m done. Laura: I’m all done. So number one, A, I’m not fully formed and B, it’s not that I came into the world as this I’m just maybe five or 10 or 25 years ahead of the person who’s looking at me. I’m just the future them, and they look at me as this unachievable thing when in fact it’s completely achievable if they dream, think, and do. So a time when I felt fully stuck was probably when I was at the big traditional gold standard search firm that I was at, and I was supposed to be happy. I had done all the right things, I had checked all the right boxes, I went to the right schools, I got the right jobs, I got the right promotions, and there I was as the youngest Vice President at this very well known search firm, and I wasn’t happy. And I couldn’t understand why I wasn’t happy, and I thought about the thousands of people that I’d interviewed for jobs who were all at the top of their game, who all were successful, and not all of whom were happy.
