Laura Gassner Otting helps people get “unstuck” — and achieve extraordinary results.
During her 20 years in executive search, she partnered with the full gamut of mission driven executives, from start-up dreamers to scaling social entrepreneurs (even serving as a Presidential Appointee in Bill Clinton’s White House). She is most recently the author Limitless: How to Ignore Everybody, Carve Your Own Path, and Live Your Best Life, which debuted at #2 on the Washington Post bestseller list, right behind Michelle Obama, and which was named by Robin Roberts as one of Good Morning America’s Favorite Books of the Year.


Have you ever accomplished something you weren’t so sure you could do? It’s exciting! It’s incredible! It’s amazing!

Success! It’s kind of wonderful, right?

The work you did opened more doors than you ever thought possible. But, it also teased the opportunity of even more doors that you’d never thought possible. 

And, maybe, just maybe, as you peeked out into what could be… you admitted to yourself: “I want more.”

Instead of success bringing you happiness, it handed you an increased hunger, a faster pace, bigger goals. And with that came uncertainty, self-doubt, anxiety… stress. 

Success is wonderful. But it’s also kinda hell. It just might be that success is kinda wonderhell.
