Connect with Lizbeth

Hi! I’m Lizbeth.

I’m an author, speaker, podcaster, and online teacher. BOOK MARKETING ON THE SKINNY is now closed for enrollment. Click here to sign up for the waitlist.


I serve mid-life women recalibrating after crises, and/or women who are (finally) ready to stop falling to the bottom of their own priority list. Limited individual coaching available now, with group coaching to come.

What experience do I have?

Nearly three decades working as an advocate, investigator, and probation officer means I’ve helped thousands create change. More importantly, I’ve bucked intergenerational patterns of poverty, family violence, and secret-keeping to create the life I live now. I hold a graduate degree in psychology,  traveled six of the seven continents (and counting), and am fortunate to have a vibrant community of support. And I did none of this alone. 

 I discovered there were three key ingredients to successfully scaling crises and big challenges: 1) Strong communication, 2) Solid support, and 3) Stubborn persistence. All have helped me move from food stamps to foreign travel and live a life that will one day make a fabulous obituary.

As a result, connecting and coaching have become my superpowers. I’ve spoken to groups as small as five and as large as 500. HERE is  a slice of my story. And I’ve created a tribe of other survivors and strivers for you at Persistence U with Lizbeth podcast.


Interested in hosting me for a speaking event? Perfect! Let’s talk budget and goals.

If we are not already, I’d love to connect with you on my Facebook or Twitter account, and certainly on my newsletter list.

Thanks for stopping by.
