Guest: Chris Weber



AuthorRise Goals help you stay committed to everyday activities that lead to a larger, more engaged readership. While your long-term objective may be to become a bestseller, it’s the smaller, more manageable steps added up over time that will get you there. Think of it like a fitness regimen: a little bit of work every day goes a lot further than an isolated week or two of intense effort.

Our guest is Elizabeth Perlman, founder of The Intuitive Writing Project.

The Intuitive Writer Project is designed for girls between 14 and 19. Through the transformative process of writing their stories and having their voices heard, we help young women to better access, trust, and rely upon their own intuitive wisdom. This cultivates self-knowledge, self-esteem, emotional intelligence, critical thinking skills, creative problem-solving skills, and a sense of personal leadership—the courage to plot their own course and make new things possible. By graduation, each girl emerges with not only an exceptional writing portfolio but also a greater awareness of who she is, what she stands for, and what she wants to create in life, both for herself and the world.
