The sky isn’t the limit for this week’s guest, former Presidential appointee, entrepreneur, and author Laura Gassner Otting.

Her most recent book is called Limitless and that’s the message she shares on today’s show. Imposter syndrome was real for Gassner Otting, who said it took pushing herself far outside her comfort zone — even after 25 years of experience in a variety of professional fields — in order to realize her own limitless potential.

She had to push other people’s ideas about her own limits to the side and seek out challenges she didn’t think she’d be able to surmount.  She shares tips about diving in headfirst, learning from failure, and getting the most out of the one life we live.


  • Evaluate your own metrics of success
  • Discover hidden potential within yourself
  • Shed limiting beliefs based on others’ ideas of constraints
  • Kick imposter syndrome and realize if it doesn’t challenge you, it doesn’t change you
  • Pursue projects that are in line with your ideals
