(“I’ve always refused labels, unless they’re applied by my grandbaby.”)
Age: I’m 56, I think? I quit keeping count.
Basic bio: Liz is TueNight’s social media manager. She’s working on her first book, a memoir about her experiences as a first-generation American daughter of Hungarian refugees.
Beyond the bio: I started my blog in 2003 (when the Internet was still in diapers) as a way to connect with other parents. I was a stay-at-home-mom with four kids under the age of 10 at the time, so I wrote during nap times and at night (sometimes in the bathroom). In those days, I never imagined it would lead to a full-time career. You could say my kids and I grew up online. I’m very proud of what I’ve accomplished and excited for the next chapter in my life: FINISHING MY DAMN BOOK!
What makes you a grown-ass lady? I am not afraid of failing. I’ve gathered a long list of learnings in my 50+ years of navigating failure. Success is good, but failure has given me the confidence and self-esteem to keep on going.
