    Elizabeth Miner on writing & self-publishing her new book as a full-time nomad

    My conversation partner this week is Elizabeth Miner. In Elizabeth's words:  "Global business coach, international speaker, digital nomad, and author Elizabeth Miner has learned true sustainable success relies on understanding the human engine running a business. Combining her 20+ years as a corporate paralegal with coaching clients around the globe, she has a unique worldview of entrepreneurship. Elizabeth recognized distinct patterns in the success and failure of business owners and has been piecing together where traditional education has failed entrepreneurs. When she’s not writing or helping business executives thrive in the face of persistent change, Elizabeth hosts her own podcast, entrepreneurs IRL, sharing real life stories of those along the entrepreneurial journey. She has been featured on podcasts including Entrepreneur on Fire and The Conscious Millionaire, and has been published by She is Fierce!, Rank & File Magazine and Mike Dooley’s personal development site Tut.

Jas is exceptional

If you’re an INFP or intuitive/sensitive creator, you’ve found a wonderful spot to feel connected. Jas shines a light on the beauty and uniqueness of being an INF, how to show up to be our best selves and keep moving in our creative practices even when times are difficult. He honestly feels like a friend afar. I always feel seen and centered and uplifted after listening to his podcast. Thanks, Jas!
