I am really inviting you in behind the scenes today because this recording is actually the raw audio of the phone interview for Rank & File Magazine. Claire called in from Buenos Aires where she lives, and I tuned in from Oslo, Norway. But, we had such a great conversation even oceans away.
I couldn’t keep our incredible phone conversation locked-up. I wanted to share it with you and allow you to listen in!
In our conversation, Claire is going to talk all about what she learned at Twitter during its time as a startup and how she actually “got the Pope on Twitter.” How cool is that? She is also going to talk about her goal philosophy, the concept of essentialism and how to structure and on-ramp our goals.
Here is a short outline of what Claire and I cover in this podcast episode on goal setting for purpose-driven entrepreneurs.
