Liz Van Reenen says, I know that there are no mistakes in life. I take more risks because experience has taught me that there really is no risk to living fully. Risk is a perception and a state of mind. I trust life and all that happens a lot more. When I do what’s in front of me and just practice right living, there are miracles in every day. Born with a severe case of shy-itus, Liz had to record her class presentations in high school and be out of the room. She’s not sure how it happened, but Liz van Reenen has been a professional speaker for three years now.
