Liz uses 6 Sesame Street characters to help her audience understand how their drivers impact their behaviors in every area of their life.
Liz Nead was on her way home from a stressful dinner with a friend when a thought popped in her head. ‘What if I had to pay one dollar for every minute I experienced tonight? Would it be worth it?’ It was then the 1440 Principle was imagined- a life management strategy used to cast a light on relationships, careers, health, and the future. Highly interactive and entertaining, Liz guides the audience through a new way of thinking, using the 1440 Principle to imagine paying ($1.00 per minute) for everything they say, think, and do. Participants leave with a new way of thinking about their life and strategies to create both necessary boundaries and new opportunities for growth. KEY TAKEAWAYS Tactical thought processes to track and evaluate the time invested in relationships, careers, thought processes and more. Simple techniques to evaluate priorities. Ownership and empowerment strategies. Important language to protect time (when to say yes and how to say no). - See more at: http://neadinspiration.com/visionary-speaker/#sthash.CcLTol2b.dpuf

CLIMB A READY TO MOUNTAIN? This workbook is about Living Big, reaching beyond what you know to be secure and comfortable and real into a new part of yourself that can only be stimulated by challenging circumstances. I’ve had several Live Big moments and after each one, I am stronger. I stood on stage and in front of thousands of people, revealed my least favorite part of my body, my stretch marks. I participated and placed in a Strong Man competition in which I flipped 300-pound tires and pulled a 5000 pound HumVee. Most recently, I planned a trip to summit Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, Africa. The largest free-standing mountain in the world, a t 19,000 feet, it took 6 days to summit and 1 to desend. I worked out for hours at a time for months, prepared my family to thri ve in my absence and put aside my business for an unprecendented 10 days. Many things happened in the process. I had to make time to work out, and be there for myself every day. I found out I still had time to do all the other things I found important. I stopped drinking so much, I ate better and slept more. I got excited about my business and what I could do. I told everyone who would listen about what I was doing. I chose charities and learned how hard it is to give to others but did it anyway (that’s a whole other story). I also learned about crowdfunding and how to ask. I left my life- my husband, children, business and social media efforts to go around the world. I traveled with a person I barely know and climbed with a team of people I just met. I dealt with all the interpersonal issues that happen among humans and maintained my own journey. I visited a continent I always wanted to see. I climbed the mountain. My poor reactions to depleted oxygen due to altitude forced me to depend on others because without them I could not have made it. I delegated my duties to my son who made sure people could see what I was doing. I generated thousands of likes in a week’s time and inspired many people. I returned to a family that completely supported me. I received important lessons and messages during my mountain climb I will use forever. I turned my mountain experience into new coaching and speaking business.
INSPIRATION? what is our ? I learned to fully embrace my vision from my parents. Use the next page and write out a family or friend story that inspires you. Who do YOU need to "invite" into your vision? Describe an "unlikely" vision that lives inside you. Forget about the odds and honor it with some attention. ? The seed of my inspired vision was planted a continent away when my father “chose” to someday live in the United States when he was only 14. It wasn’t just the miles of ocean that rolled between India and America that make his dream unlikely; He would be a pioneer, the first among his family to make this ourney. He lived out his vision every day, every action and thought moving him towards his goal. He met my mother in Bombay (now Mumbai) at a church he attended and invited her into his vision. Before he finally made the trip to the U.S., he went to school in England and my mom stayed back in India to pursue her nursing career. For five long years they wrote letters to each other with only a few phone calls and face-to-face experiences. Yet, my father kept the vision alive by asking her to stand on the roof of the nursing school and “face the United States” while she read his letters. Now in retirement, they have celebrated 45 truly happy years together with two daughters and six beautiful grandchildren. My dad is living out his vision today, one that started over 50 years ago in a small village in India. As the beneficiary of his vision, I am inspired to LIVE BIG every day.
