Laura Gassner Otting

Laura's secret superpower is seeing your greatness and reflecting it back on you, so that you can get "unstuck" -- and achieve extraordinary results.

Through Limitless Possibility, Laura collaborates with entrepreneurs and investors to push past the doubt and indecision that consign 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.

Laura's 25-year resume is defined by her entrepreneurial edge. She served as a Presidential Appointee in Bill Clinton's White House, helping shape AmeriCorps; left a leadership role at respected nonprofit search firm, Isaacson, Miller, to expand the startup ExecSearches.com; and founded and ran the NPAG, which partnered with the full gamut of mission driven executives, from start-up dreamers to scaling social entrepreneurs to global philanthropists. She is the author of Mission-Driven, a book for those moving from profit to purpose, and the upcoming Limitless: How to Ignore Everybody, Carve Your Own Path, and Life Your Best Life (April 2019)

Through her own commitment to give back, Laura has helped build a local Montessori school, co-founded a women's philanthropic initiative, advised a start-up national women's PAC, grew a citizen-leadership development program, and completed three charity-inspired marathons--projects emblematic of her passions and values. She's turned on by the audacity of The Big Idea and that larger-than-life goal you just can't seem to shake. She's an instigator, a motivator, and a provocateur, and she's never met a revolution she didn't like.
