Hi there, I’m Liz Traines, a certified career and life coach who empowers leaders and business owners to build authentic, fulfilling and financially rewarding careers (& lives) they love. I do this through private coaching programs, group workshops & trainings, speaking, writing and consulting. I love what I do and the life I’ve built for myself, but there’s been quite a journey to get here…
Prior to starting my own business, I spent 8 years in corporate finance at Accenture. The first few years there were tough; I worked really hard, way too many hours and was constantly burning the midnight oil. I lived a life of intense ups and downs, which eventually caused burnout, intense anxiety, imposter syndrome, perfectionism and a sense of feeling completely lost at work (and in my life).
As a kid, I was taught to listen to my body and never ignore it, so these physical and mental wakeup calls served as my catalyst for change. I didn’t know exactly what I needed, but I knew I needed help getting back on track. This was not easy, but as I did the work to focus on myself, listening to my feelings, my voice, leading with my strengths & curiosity, I was promoted to the executive level with an attractive salary, great perks, flexibility and the ability to focus a considerable amount of my time developing + training people, my true passion.
Eventually, I discovered that “a considerable” amount of time was not enough. My time was precious, and I knew I needed more of the stuff I LOVED doing; I wanted to make a bigger impact. I wanted the creative freedom to develop and grow my own ideas that had been sitting in the “idea bank” for too long. I knew I had to quit and do my thing! Thus, the entrepreneurship journey began, and Liz Traines Coaching was born!
My mission since day one has been to cultivate an authentic, meaningful, and financially abundant career for myself and helping my clients do the same. I’m loving the incredibly motivated, passionate, courageous people I get to work with each day!
