Although best known for her memoir Eat, Pray, Love--which went on to sell over 12 million copies and became a film staring Julia Roberts—she’s also one of Time Magazine’s 100 most influential people in the world… The whole world. Spend some time with her in your ears on today’s podcast and you’ll know why in under a minute... In this episode, we cover
  • How Liz considers mental health her full time job, and writing / being a professional creator is a hobby.
