Today's conversation is with Liz Goldman. Liz is my personal life coach. Liz has been assisting individuals and groups in accessing their unique gifts and wisdom for over 20 years.

Liz and I discuss her diverse and cultural upbringing in New York City, family dynamics, the importance of support systems, communication and challenges, coaching, the benefits of coaching, trust, and Liz’s journey to becoming a life and business coach. Liz also shared several tips and important skills that might be useful for your journey and self-reflection.
- What does it mean to be a coach, the value of a coach, and how coaching fits into a support system
- Leadership, building your leadership and its relation to inspiration
- Benefits of slowing down and connecting to your inner wisdom
- Being more courageous and be willing to be messy, clucky, and awkward
- The importance of cultivating greater trust and self-trust, starting from us first, changing our conversation or starting a new conversation with ourselves that allows us to change how we see our reality and move into a space of possibilities
Some of my favorite quotes:
"I believe we all come into our lives with certain lessons to learn and opportunities to grow."
"It was difficult as a kid to feel so much and not know where to go with it or how to understand it. That was a very clunky experience when I was young, and I know it let me to where I have gone professionally."
"Anything is possible for people, regardless of where they came from."
"It's important to give people the space to be real and to have people hear them and all that in service to where do they want to go."
"If we don't know what's happening right where we are, we don't have a very good shot at creating much that is of value in the world, much that is satisfying or fulfilling for every one of us."
"One of the most productive skills I have seen people take into their lives is to be willing to be messy, to be willing to be clunky, and to be willing to be awkward."
"If we start with us, everything is an extension out of that."
"If we slow down and focus on ourselves, bring it back into what is happening inside of us, what do we need, how can we show up better, what are our values, and to really look at us...and then extend out from there, we can change our reality, sometimes very quickly, and sometimes it is a longer process, but there is so much more possible from that place."
I enjoyed listening to the stories that Liz has shared about her life so openly. This conversation allowed me to see the connection of how her journey and experiences contributed to Liz being the person she is today.
I got so curious about many things that we ended up running out of time, plus I faced some technical difficulties with my internet connection. Technology - we cannot live without it, and it rarely works as we would like it to when we need it the most. I hope to record another conversation with Liz about many more topics that I am curious to discuss with her in the future.
