I’m Lisa Z, happiness seeker, dreamer, soulpreneur and creator of a sparkly life I ridiculously love. 

If Oprah were to ask me what I know for sure, I would say, “that dreams do come true.”

I know what broken feels like. I know what triumph feels like. I know sorrow so profound that it seeped into my bones. I know what sheer joy feels like. I’ve been to the brink of giving up on myself. I’ve battled the demons of depression and anxiety, many times. I’ve done a lot of what I didn’t love before I found what I do love. But when you get there, it’s like seeing the sun for the first time. That feeling of warm elation is what makes me want to help you get there too.

I’m a master excavator and change agent. I want you to become the “you” your role models will want to interview. And have cocktails with. Doing work that sets your soul on fire. Enjoying relationships that lift you up and light you up. Because you are worth it.

I’m obsessed with your happiness. And I want you to be obsessed with it too!

I learned the hard way, that we never know how many days we get, so let’s make each one UH-MAZING!

I’m here to help you Get CLEAR, Get REAL and Get GOING and #getwhatyouwant

You can do it.


I’m right here with you.


I landed what I thought was my dream job, six years out of MBA school, only to find out quickly that it wasn’t my dream. Not even close. And someone else was caring for my babies all day. I let myself be restructured out.

I didn’t know how we would survive without my income, but I felt certain we would. I needed more time with my kids. I wasn’t very good at watching tv or housework while they napped, but I did watch The Oprah Winfrey Show with Oprah and all her amazing, life-changing guests like Marcia Wieder, Cheryl Richardson, Debbie Ford, Wayne Dyer, and Gary Zukov. It was one enlightened being after another. I read their books and did the exercises. I knew I wanted to help people change their lives like these people were doing. Marcia Wieder’s book, Making Your Dreams Come True, showed me how I wanted to help people.

Just six months after I left my job, my husband said, “I want to start my own company.” He had a few projects lined up that would see us through the first six months. I didn’t know if it would work but my intuition (yes, she’s crazy!) said, “Go for it!” We did and as of August 2000, neither of us had day jobs.

I would love to tell you it all went swimmingly well, but, of course, it didn’t.

In 2007, just days after an amazing family trip to Europe, and following a business breakup in my husband’s company, I was interviewing for corporate jobs. Add an economic recession of epic proportions. I pushed the hold button on my dream; we do what we have to do.

In 2014, I was restructured out again. The cage door was opened! Free at last, free at last. Thank God Almighty, I’m free at last. In fact, as I drove out of the parking lot with boxes in my car, I could not stop smiling. I told my husband, I don’t know how we’ll make it, but I’m sure we will.

I woke up the next morning and went to the gym. I began writing every single day and the material flooded from my fingertips and my soul.

I have never seen the whole staircase. I have a vision for how I want my life to go and a global view of how I want to help people- writing, blogging, and coaching but I am content to see the stairs that are placed before me. I’m willing to trust and have faith that I will know more when I’m meant to. There is a palpable difference when you are on the path and when you aren’t. Your vibration will tell you all you need to know.

My gut’s always right

Ever since I was a kid, I heard the message in my head, “these gifts I give unto, greater work shall you do.” It gave me hope through the dark days of my childhood and continues to guide my actions. For all that I do, I aspire to do greater work for my fellow humans, animals and the planet. At your service!

What I know for sure is that you have a purpose too. Your soul knows the details. Be still so you can hear it. Have faith and take the first step.

I created this life I ridiculously love with so many people who light me up and lift me up, with work that truly sets my soul on fire, and with a version of myself I adore (this was hard fought and won). You can do it too. You can free yourself from everything that weighs you down. From all that you tolerate, power through and put up with. From everything that steals your sunshine.

I was meant for much more. You are too.

Your amazing, awesome life is calling to you.

I’m right here with you and for you.

The Official Bio

I’ve studied business and psychology at the undergraduate and graduate levels and am a certified strategic intervention and relationship coach through Tony Robbins. Added a side helping of positive psychology just a bit ago.

I’ve launched two companies. I invented two baby products and watched someone else take them to market. The companies, however, are alive and well!

I’ve made mistakes (yeah, a bunch) and learned from them.

I’m a Jersey girl turned Floridian, with no particular advantage other than passion, compassion, and tenacity. I follow the sun and my intuition. Note: I have NO sense of physical direction, however. Do not ask me the way back to the hotel. I will have no fucking idea. Do ask me about your path and your purpose though…on that, I’ve got you!

I’m a perpetual student of life and happiness.

I’ve written articles for Smart Healthy Women Magazine, Huffington Post (including Huffington Post Italia and HP Japan), Thrive Global, and Addicted2Success. I’ve also written a few guest blog posts, most recently, for leadership expert Sue Zarnowski, also known as @twocheckedbagsandacoffee.

I serve as a resident expert at Let’s Conquer Motherhood with Lisa York at

I love, love, love fitness (the gym is my Mecca), dance (disco night anyone?), fashion (lead with your style and your confidence will follow!), food (veggies- no animals harmed!), travel (anywhere with friends and family!), and animals (except spiders, who I appreciate but do NOT love) and last but certainly not least…cocktails. Like, just about any kind. Bourbon? Yes, please. Vodka martini? Hella Yeah. Champagne? Everything is better with bubbly. Tequila? Of course. Sometimes just because it’s Tuesday. Or Wednesday. And because I have tequila sisters- you know who you are!

Life’s a celebration.

If that statement isn’t true for you…we’ve got work to do. What are you waiting for, Gorgeous? Let’s GO!
