Behind the Brilliance 057: Elizabeth Saunders


This week, I’m joined by the super awesome Elizabeth Saunders who shares her journey from magazine editor to entrepreneur. I convince her to share some of the time management secrets her clients pay tons of money for. This episode’s #LisaLikes is archery (really) and the Listener Letter is a question about how to manage wins versus losses.
