My dear friend and social media legend, Liz Strauss, is battling cancer of the larynx.
Which for someone who has so much to say, and says it so well to so many, is about as ironic as it gets.
In reflecting on what she’s learning from this journey on rising up from adversity (typical Liz!) she tells us to, “Surround yourself with people who know your goals, share your values, and who are willing to help support you in getting back on your feet again.” (Read Angel Djambazov’s full interview with her here) I’m confident that she’ll be in good, strong, physical voice again soon.
Here’s a clip of Liz’s opening remarks from her presentation at The Extreme Leadership Summit this past August. You’ll not only hear her as yet undiagnosed physical struggle, but some very apt–and eerily prescient–words of advice for all of us on how to meet the challenges of the day.
