Learn from one of Forbes’ Self-Made Richest Women, Liz Elting, who founded a billion dollar company. In this interview Liz shares some of the key lessons from her book, Dream Big + Win: Translating Passion into Purpose and Creating a Billion-Dollar Business. One of my favorites was the understanding that entrepreneurs don’t need to be inventors. There were tens of thousands of translation companies but that didn’t stop Liz from starting her own. She was set on building the world’s premier and largest language solutions company which she and her co-CEO did. You will hear more about this and how she was able to grow the company without outside funding. If you are looking to take your business and life to the next level, this interview is for you!
