420: Translating Passion Into Purpose: Creating a Billion-Dollar Business

Imagine the possibilities if you were to take radical and relentless action towards your biggest (maybe even intimidating) dreams – defying fear and uncertainty. 

Today’s guest, the remarkable Liz Elting, doesn’t need to imagine. She’s living it. 

Her story is a true testament to what can happen when vision and action align. 

Now recognized as one of Forbes’ Richest Self-Made Women, Liz’s dreams had humble beginnings in her NYU dorm room in 1992 when she co-founded TransPerfect – from scratch.

TransPerfect has since grown into the world’s largest language and business solutions provider, with over $1.1 billion in revenue and operations in more than 100 cities worldwide.

But Liz’s impact goes way beyond business. She’s the Founder and CEO of The Elizabeth Elting Foundation, a bestselling author, linguaphile, philanthropist, feminist, and mother.

Her new book, ‘Dream Big and Win’ is a great read for anyone who is pioneering their own path to purpose-led success. It offers practical wisdom on not just how to dream big but also how to win in both business and life. 

Now, in today’s conversation, we delve deep into:

  • How to take radical action in pursuit of your dreams
  • The definition of modern leadership
  • How to use adversity to fuel extraordinary growth
  • The art of balancing self-discipline with self-compassion
  • The secret to cultivating enduring passion and purpose, no matter life’s circumstances

And so much more!

I cannot wait to share Liz Elting’s inspiring and rich insights with you.

“Be bold, dream big. Take the risk. Figure out what it takes to accomplish your goals, and then you will win. Or if you don’t, at least you’ll get damn near close… We all need to take risks to keep growing and to keep learning.”
