BIO: LIZ BENTLEY LINK:
We cannot stop the evolution of life. Our choice is to evolve with it, which feels great and when we fight it, it's fruitless.
By knowing who we are, we know how to grow our business, we know how to create a culture. If we're evolving ourselves, everyone around us is growing too.
You can't be a great leader without failing. In order to lead you have to take risks.
Failure is critical to growing confidence.
