"Wow!!! I've been on fire, productivity- wise! Liz has a way of getting to the heart of the matter by asking gently probing questions until you arrive at the destination of your discontent or issue. In my case, it was a block. Well, the block is taking a vacation and I'm cleared up to move forward. Thanks so much Liz! I look forward to working with you again in the future." -- T.S.
"Liz of Life by Design does a fabulous job in one hour of pinpointing life areaswhere you are winning and those other areas where you may need a little bit of help to put them in the winning column. She does it gently and in a highly supportive manner. I was so very impressed!" -- J.S.
"Liz with Life by Design helped me to develop new life style habits and explore obstacles that opposed my progress. I picked an area I wanted to focus on, physical health, and Liz and I discussed my thoughts and feelings. I began to see how I could attain increased physical health. Then, as I continued to work with Liz, I began to naturally make better choices and the resulting feelings of accomplishment and attainment have been remarkable. Liz brought out of me the path that was there inside me all along. Liz is intuitive, easy to talk to and extremely resourceful. She has an honest approach to life and sincere desire to help with the ability to inspire and motivate. I would recommend Liz to everyone who wants more from life!" -- T.M
“Liz has been a great health coach. I worked with her to set some health goals for myself. She was helpful in setting the goals, and called me every week to see how things were coming. She is very encouraging and supportive. I have signed up for her online coaching where I can set and track goals, chat with Liz, create customized exercise routines, and read articles pertinent to my personal health. I highly recommend Liz!” -- L.S.
Last Friday I attended a workshop on "Elevator speech" with Liz at her new and wonderful office in Milpitas. It was priceless! It really made a huge difference for me.
In a few hours, Liz guided us, with great skills, through the deepest meaning of what our businesses were about, what we were trying to convey, to the finish product, our perfect elevator speeches.
I would recommend this workshop with Liz, to everybody who feels that their elevator speech is not perfect, even if you think that it is acceptable. You will be amazed how much better it can be! -- M.M. Scotts Valley, CA
Being a new member to eWomen and networking in general, I struggled with my "one minute"! At the mixer last week, I crossed paths with Liz Ainsworth ofLife By Design. Upon kindly asking how I was, I expressed my struggle with the 60 seconds. Without even telling me what she did, she threw out some quick advice and checked in with me later that evening. I explained that I could use a phase two!! She invited me to take part in a 3 hour workshop called "Crafting your Perfect Elevator Pitch." The price sounded extremely fair, so I thought...why not?
Liz Ainsworth had a useful workbook to guide the process. She provided clarity and tips for many different aspects of networking. She was professional and offered advice in a open-hearted way. I learned not to get caught up in perfectly scripted words but to relax and speak from my heart. As Liz said, "when you have integrity about what you do, it shows authentically". I absolutely love one-on-one talks, but have always found speaking in front of a group very challenging. Liz allowed me to see that its not about perfection, its about practice!!!Thank you Liz, for taking the time to ask a newbie how things are going. Much appreciation!! -- S.H.
"Liz worked with me on my professional introduction (elevator speech) but the result was significant improvement in my resume and my LinkedIn Profile. Liz is quite insightful and creative and great to work with." -- R.J.
"After only two sessions I was amazed that my perspective had changed on few things. It would be pointless for me to give tidbits of what changed because it needs to be in the context of the individual's situation. I can definitely say that if you need help with a change in perspective to get you moving in the right direction of planning your life, have a few sessions with Liz!" -- H.R.
I increased my health, my family's health and saved at least $3,000 per year. As a result of not smoking, I now have 3-5 more hours in my day. This program was tailored around me and my challenges. It is not just a generic, step-by-step program. It gave me confidence and tools I can use in other aspects of my life." -- E.T."I achieved the ability to resist smoking and the confidence to remain smoke-free.
