Is the definition of success you’ve been carrying around your whole life what really makes you happy? Should we really be following our passion?In this episode, Laura Gassner Otting (@HeyLGO) talks about how our passions will beat us up and why that is such a good thing. She’ll share how we can get unstuck, fund success on our own terms, and live without limits. Life isn’t easy and it isn’t supposed to be. Our life doesn’t have a user manual and unless we can battle through the sticky parts, we’ll be living a life of ‘what if’. Tune in to this episode to hear from the incomparable LGO!

Guests: Ian Crosby
In this episode, we hear from Ian Crosby as he takes us through the evolution of Bench and how he and his team have realized the success they have.
For Ian, Bench isn’t about a centrally planned system, it is an economy with different teams that interact together and have increased responsibility. Instead of departments, the company runs more like a collection of businesses.
Ian shares more about the company’s ‘default open’ principle and how everything that isn’t confidential can be shared amongst the teams to build a greater sense of trust and inclusion.
