  • Hi Eliz;

    I just left your program on December 6th @ the city of west allis. I just wanted to let you know that I really enjoyed your presentation. It helped to remind me that not everything is so important that it has to be right now! I am learning that little by little-I have gotten away by my self for a massage/facial last week and I plan to do another facial at the end of this month-I had already come to the conclusion that I need some time for myself and do something that makes me feel good. So again thank you for helping me reaffirm that I need to put myself first sometimes!

    Also, thanks in advance for the copy of your e-book. I have recently joined weight watchers because I decided that I need to loose some weight to make me feel better and I look forward to reading your e-book to help me along with that.

    Thanks again.

  • Thank you, Thank you very much!!!

    This is the second time I have heard Eliz speak and I enjoyed it as much as the first time.
    Eliz’s story just brings home how fragile life can be and if we want to live happier and healthier we need to take care of ourselves too. I am one of the three balls I must have in my juggling routine!

    Thanks Eliz!!


  • Very inspiring talk. I can look back when there were chainsaws and bowling balls in my life…clever visuals that I will remember along with tips for juggling all the balls in life. I love her sense of humor.

  • My husband invited me to attend “Juggling Lessons for Life” at the City of West Allis. Even though there was a small amount of men attending, we both learned a few things. Men and women handle stress very different, breath, laugh and really take at look at what is really important in your life. It is O.K. to say “NO” and just take time for yourself.
    Excellent speaker, I would recommend everyone to see Eliz!

  • Eliz, you spoke my language today! My first child was born 12-20-00 at St. Joe’s, and although it was an easy birth, the 5 months of severe colic and the exhaustion it brought with it were enough to put me on the brink. Life got even more challenging with a second colicky child and a demanding job. Although I wouldn’t trade it for anything, I certainly lost myself along the way in feeling the need to please everyone else. Life seems to be one speed–fast-forward, and with that now being my new “norm”, I find it difficult to relax when I have any amount of down time. Your presentation is just a reminder that we need to look out for #1 and don’t step in #2. I read your book while on the treadmill this evening. Your quiz was practical and engaging. THANK YOU!

  • I totally enjoyed your presentation. You gave me motivation. I too have a hard time doing things for myself. I’m a single parent with four girls. I have, just recently, been working on saying no sometimes. The reaction I get is usually a surprised look (and that’s ok).

    Thank you!

  • I really enjoyed listening to you speek today,very engaging and motivating. I went out and bought a pedometer this afternoon, (after I picked up the kids from day care but before I came home to clean the living room put up the christmas tree and make dinner for the family. LOL) 😉 Thank you for spending your time with us today we really enjoyed it! But I’m sorry I don’t have anymore time to give you at the moment because the kids are asleep and it is now me time, but don’t worry I’ll be thinking of you when I brush my teeth tonight. Thank you again!!

  • Really enjoyed your presentation in West Allis on 12-6. So many women put themselves last on the list, hence I loved your juggling analogy. Your enthusiasm is contagious. Thanks again for the inspiration to take better care of “ME”.

  • I really enjoyed your session earlier this month! I have started incorporating the “get myself moving” practice by joining zumba with friends recently. Also, now that the holiday rush is over I am spoiling myself with a message today. I am looking forward to reading about how you lost the weight you gained to see if I can do the same. I am glad the City offered your program! Happy New Year!
