An Interview with Time Coach and Author Elizabeth Saunders

I’m excited to bring you this interview with Time Coach and Author Elizabeth Grace Saunders.

Elizabeth Saunders

Elizabeth Saunders

She’s a self-proclaimed “accidental entrepreneur.” She has gone from launching a successful freelance writing business at the young age of 23 to developing a healthy speaking career.  Then she uncovered a true passion for helping people to live lives where they accomplished more while experiencing more peace and less stress.

In fact, she now coaches clients from around the world and has become a recognized expert in time management… err… I mean “TIME INVESTMENT.”

That’s right.

Elizabeth is quick to offer clarification that she doesn’t promote “time management.”  Instead she believes in what she calls “time investment.”  In fact, she helps audiences, organizations and individuals master these concepts.

And recently… she published a book on this very topic.

It’s called…

“The 3 Secrets to Effective Time Investment – How to achieve More Success with Less Stress.”

saunders-book-coverThe book is is designed to help readers overcome the frustrating cycle of exhaustion and overwhelm. Elizabeth introduces unique time investment and work-life balance paradigms and reveals how to experience lasting change. The book also includes 40+ ready-made routines on topics like clearing email, meeting deadlines, going to bed on time, exercising, and maintaining friendships plus a step-by-step guide to creating customized routines. Plus, the book explores how to go beyond managing your time to effective time investment so you can not only keep up with life but enjoy the process.

Well… recently I was able to catch up with Elizabeth and we were about to talk about her journey to becoming a coach as well as her process for uncovering her true passions and finding her ideal coaching clients.  Plus, we dive into the subject of her book and talk about specific strategies that any new or established life coach could apply in their own life… let alone help their clients apply as well.

Oh… and just as a fun back story… Elizabeth was a part of our initial offerings of the Coach Mindset.  That’s right.  She was one of the first graduates of our Elite Life Coach Training and Certification back in 2007.  So it’s fun to see how she has taken this and truly made it her own.

Needless to say, we’re very proud of Elizabeth AND we can’t wait to see where she goes next!

No matter what… we know that she’ll be impacting the globe and making it more brilliant and less stressful as she goes!

Keep dreaming big and helping others to do the same,
