If you’re searching for a guest speaker with a message of motivation and optimism, who knows how to energize, engage and entertain your organization, Lisa Bien is the right choice. I have known and worked with Lisa for many years on the program she hosts for Temple University Television and can tell you that she is authentic in her mission to inspire people to live their best lives.

She recounts her life experiences with raw honesty and shares her pains and joys with no holds barred, because her mission and hope is to be a catalyst for positive change for anyone struggling to figure out who they are, what they want out of life and how they can get there. This book is not good enough….it’s GREAT!
During my short 24 years, the women I have carefully watched, even imitated, tend to linger around and eye up the decisions in their lives – the leaps of faith – that taunt the consciousness with one resounding and ever open-ended question: “What if?” What I love about Lisa and her commitment to bouncing back is her staunch determination to never just ask the question, but to discover every possible answer. When I first met the one and only Bien, I was standing on that exact precipice, asking “What if?” but not daring to take a step further. Lisa was brazenly, painfully honest when she asked me what I was afraid of, and she struck a perfect balance with her unconditional support and demand for “better” when all my answers fell short.
We so seldom step back from the canvas of our lives to observe, feel, evaluate and assess what we have thus far created for ourselves. We are so afraid to erase the parts we have come to dislike, resent and suffer through, for fear of “rocking the boat” or failure. But when a woman like Lisa Bien writes a book like this, and puts your own brush back into your own hand once and for all, it is irresistible to not only ask “What if?” but to start imagining, sketching, and creating the life you want, all over again.
Lisa teaches us that self-love is the landscape upon and before which our lives and the best versions of ourselves are built. When she encourages us to bounce back, she reminds us that our lives are always and continually ours to claim – at any age, at any phase, and with all our unique and vibrant colors. Thank you, Lisa, for pioneering this message; may it always serve as a testament to the human will and the very best life still to come.
What is there to say about this amazing woman, who I have been proud to call a colleague since 2016, and now a friend? So much! Lisa is one of the most dynamic people I know. She has such a brilliant mind, and what’s exciting is that she is brilliant in ways that most smart people are not: She knows people. Lisa could write the book on “soft skills.” She understands what makes people tick and how to leverage that to improve business operations and employee morale simultaneously. Lisa takes the time to dig in and get to the heart of issues. She establishes trust and rapport quickly, and truly earns that trust. Her versatile skill set adds so much value to an organization: People / employee engagement, leadership development, communications, DEI, and public speaking are a few of the highlights in Lisa’s wheelhouse. I would unreservedly recommend her to any organization, whether it’s to speak for an hour or to become a permanent part of the fabric of the organization.
