Liz Strauss, GeniusShared CEO
Meet Liz Strauss,
a social web strategist and one of the most thoughtful, prolific bloggers on the planet. A teacher and community builder at heart, Strauss is all about interconnectedness, bringing great people and great ideas together.

Liz is a Principal and CEO of GeniusShared, an organization dedicated to promoting achievement in the business community through understanding of how personal development fuels, defines, and limits (or amplifies) success. She is also founder of SOBCon, the game-changing business retreat that energized business growth and owner/author of the popular Successful-Blog (successful-blog.com). Liz’s new book Anything You Put Your Mind To is being published in the early Summer of 2016 by GeniusShared Press.
Liz Strauss is an engaging, intelligent, and profoundly relevant author, speaker, retreat producer, and business coach. She is adept at distilling complex (and seemingly disconnected) human business ideas into elegantly simple concepts and helping leaders apply those concepts to the best steps to meet their goals. Liz speaks softly and carries a lot of street cred. The Dean of the College of Education at Bradley University described Liz by saying, “In my life, I’ve met five master teachers. She is one.”
Liz has worked with C-Suite executives on four continents on planning strategy and accelerating business growth through better hiring, breaking down silos, team training, and coaching new managers. Liz builds communities of fiercely loyal employees and customers who bring their friends.
Liz defines irresistible businesses as those with great relationships who constantly
- Remove what customers don’t want.
- Enhance what customers love.
- Add something unexpected customers would die for.
Irresistible defines Liz.
