Beginner Pluck: Build Your Life of Purpose & Impact Now

How often do we dismiss someone’s success by calling it “Beginner’s Luck?” What if the very fact that they were a beginner is just what gave them the advantage to succeed? What if there is a method to a beginner’s mind that creates success? What a beginner may lack in experience, track record, know-how, and connections, they make up in nerve, curiosity, spirit, courage, and a willingness to acknowledge they don’t have it all figured out, which ultimately leads to an iterative approach to achieving success.

In this speech, based on her new book, Beginner’s Pluck: Build Your Life of Purpose and Impact Now, Liz takes her 10 years of experience building her company and shares uncommon ideas toward success that come from a beginner’s mind.” Liz will guide your audience to a new roadmap for success that focuses on the acts of doing instead of dreaming and ultimately attaining even the most challenging goals.

Audience takeaways:

  • Use the principles of a beginner’s mind to achieve any goal.
  • Shake yourself out of analysis paralysis.
  • Get inspired to go beyond dreaming and start doing.
  • Focus on creating your passion rather than waiting for it to find you.

This keynote is also available virtually.
