Despite historic accomplishments in her career as a one of the first 100 women to ever fly a Black Hawk Helicopter for the US Army, Elizabeth battled blatant bias, verbal attacks and physical abuse in her life.

    Dear Elizabeth,

    thanks so much for sharing, your bravery and honesty. And for your mission. I bow. Is the gift “how do you boost your inner fortitude” included in that mini- course
    “Master Your Motivation” or where can I find that?

    All the best to you.

    All the best to you.
