episode 124 of the Slow Living Podcast: Dream Big and Win with Liz Elting

see all podcast notes, here

Hello hello, Slow Down Society!

Today I am so excited to share an interview with Liz Elting who is an entrepreneur, philanthropist, Co Founder of TransPerfect, and one of Forbe’s richest self-made women!

Liz started out working in corporate America in college. She quickly realized that being a woman in a male-dominated workplace was not what she wanted. So Liz took her passion for languages

and business and created TransPerfect — from her dorm room at NYC!


Everyone has dreams and goals for their life, but what do you do with them? Do you let them continue to stay a dream or do you do sometime with them? My guest today took her dream and turned it into a reality!

Liz wants you to keep in mind what your values and dreams are and create a career that’s a part of that. 🙂

Today we are talking to Liz about:

  • How she started her BILLION dollar business in a dorm room
  • How and when she knew it was time to sell her business
  • The difference between women and men when it comes to helping others
  • How can parents of the younger generation recreate the connection and social awareness for their children?
  • The value of going into an office and how it provides a more well balanced life
