The Tension Between Optimism and Reality with Tamara Kleinberg

Our featured interview with Tamara Kleinberg addresses the many struggles entrepreneurs face in navigating the two worlds of optimism and reality. You’ll hear why seductive goals, big plans, and quick wins are not how successful and ambitious professionals build a surplus of wealth, free time, and certainty. Tamara calls herself an ‘Innovation Enabler’ and is the founder of The Shuuk, an online testing ground for new products. She is a sought-after keynote speaker and author on innovation and entrepreneurship, has run multi-million dollar businesses, and has launched a few of her own.

In this episode’s talk, we listen in on a webinar where Co-Founder Kirkland Tibbels talks about what we call “State of Mind,” and in particular, how you and I evidence our State of Mind to other people when we are transacting. There are four States of Mind, and in this talk, Kirkland discusses the state we call “Naiveté.”
