Show Notes:

We are all fur mamas #00:01:10.8#

Liza moved a lot and taught herself to code at age 13 –out of boredom! #00:02:03.2#

She works full time with educational institutions and nonprofits. #00:03:44.7#

Liza’s side hustle helps creative entrepreneurs get away from cookie cutter templates in this DIY culture.  #00:04:17.2#

Liza is a fine arts and programming hybrid #00:04:07.2#

She helps women understand their websites, grow with them, and maintain them on their own. #00:04:54.6#

Your 9-to-5 and your side hustle: what Sucks, what rocks? #00:06:32.6#

“Not enough women code.” Liza’s involved with GirlDevelopIt helping girls get into the tech industry. #00:07:17.4#

The upside is my team [at tech company] is 50% female. #00:07:31.4#

I get to bring my dogs! #00:07:46.4#

Juggling coding with Photoshop design or wire framing. #00:09:36.8#

Sunday off? Hell yes!#00:10:51.4#

How Liza has shifted her mindset around money to become successful #00:11:33.3#

Liza’s been working on abundance mindset, having grown up in scarcity mindset… #00:11:54.6#

I do get back into scarcity mindset, but lately I’ve been able to shift it so I don’t have to take just any client, I can take on the right client. #00:12:41.5#

Defining an ideal client sets you up for trusting that you know what you’re doing, so if you put it out there, the universe knows what you’re doing. #00:13:36.7#

Having an abundant mindset, that money will have a better energy around it #00:14:25.7#

I interviewed at a bunch of companies that were basically just a bunch of old white dudes #00:14:42.6#

As soon as I realized “this is what I need” the universe was like “okay, let me start doling some stuff your way”… #00:15:31.6#

The universe is like “oh, you don’t have faith in me? then I’m not going to send you all this awesome stuff.” #00:16:32.5#

Liza’s favorite mantra! #00:17:05.9#

Liza’s favorite swear word! #00:18:00.8#

Detroit features on Liza’s Instagram! And the interesting reason why. #00:19:10.5#

Wanderlust jealousy, wine, and women! #00:23:52.1#

Welcome gifts and rice offerings in the rainy season. #00:26:22.9#

“Like, I love this grass” Bali pictures. #00:27:14.0#

Liza confesses: This trip, the photos were for me. #00:29:36.1#

What is Liza’s “Sparkle Hour”? Hint: it’s internal. #00:30:34.2#

How does Liza “Sparkle that shit out”? Hint, it starts with “Eh.” #00:32:00.1#

Liza’s empowerment story: Moving beyond “Being drunk and jumping into his lap.” Value. Priorities. Bawling. Intentionality. #00:34:56.7#

Michelle offers prayers from her eyes. #00:36:31.7#

Oooh, Liza takes the Sparkle Time Machine back to tell her tween self about eggshells. #00:37:51.9#

“We do trauma here.” #00:37:58.9#

Caretaking disrupts our own development. And disruption is a trauma. #00:39:45.6#

Curating the Do It Scared Podcast with Liza Wilde and former Sparkle Hour guest Dani Schnakenberg… #00:42:14.8#
