“I find that the best relationships in my life are the multi dimensional ones, to where it's not just one role, because that's a confining way to look at a human being. And we're not just one role to one person.” - Charlie Gilkey


An essential component of The Widest Net book and a topic that every client Pamela Slim has ever had asks about is building effective partnerships. In this episode of The Widest Net Podcast, Pam’s longtime friend, past business partner and occasional client Charlie Gilkey is here! Charlie’s fascination with philosophy of productivity drove him to create new methods that guided users to not only finish what they start, but finish what matters.

His website Productive Flourishing is one of the top sites supporting planning and productivity and he has just added a new app called Momentum which has been compared to having a productivity coach in your pocket! 

Charlie and Pam talk about specific things that made their partnership in Lift Off one of the best professional collaborations of their careers. If you have questioned how to build an effective partnership in your business, THIS is the episode for you!
