Episode 021: Kare Anderson – How To Become An Opportunity Maker

I would like to thank Dorie Clark for introducing me to Kare.  Both Dorie and Kare are such great givers… Always trying to help others and they’ve done so much for me.   I was fascinated with this conversation with Kare.  She is incredibly intelligent and is a very deep thinker.  It was a joy to get her to put some of those thoughts on tape for this great podcast episode.
