Last Friday I was in Chicago at Livongo’s office to interview founder and executive chairman Glen Tullman for our 5 Year Retrospective Interview for The Making Magnificence Project®.

At the time of our first conversation in 2014, Glen was really just getting Livongo off the ground.  Fast forward, and he’s taken Livongo though the largest consumer digital health IPO in history, put a new CEO in place, and moved into the role of executive chairman.  One thing that hasn’t changed is how he talks about changing the world.

In Friday’s interview, we discussed passion and meaning, what’s he’s been doing in these intervening years, and just how he did it so fast.  And we revisited something from our initial interview – what I call courageous candor – that starting over was scary.

I’ll let you know when the interview is live.
