I'm Liz Funk.
I like writing and speaking about passionate people living happier, healthier lives.
I have written for USA Today, Newsday, the Washington Post, the Christian Science Monitor, AOL.com, MSNBC, the Huffington Post, CosmoGIRL! and the Albany Times Union.
I frequently speak at colleges and teach workshops for young women on stress reduction, healthy ambition, and achieving for the right reasons.
I'm the author of "Supergirls Speak Out," a non-fiction book about how many of today's overachieving girls in high school and college feel like they need to be perfect, do everything, and please everyone and that they're not good enough when they're "in neutral." The book was published by Simon and Schuster in 2009.
I live in New York City, where I'm at work on my next non-fiction book about how college students and 20somethings can articulate their "calling."
I enjoy drinking lattes, reading Inc. magazine and books by entrepreneurs, and eating raspberries. I literally always have Moleskine notebooks and a water bottle on my person. You can find me on Twitter at @LizFunk.

Took some time off Twitter because I wasn't sure about my brand/ voice. Revolutionary new strategy coming into play here: BE LIZ.
I want to join HowAboutWe, but this puts pressure on me. “How about you buy me 2 drinks at a bar?” isn't a sufficiently creative date idea
Here's a fun, easy (!) way to expand your mind/ life. For one week, try not to listen to any songs from your "recently played" playlist.
Love the 1st warm days in NYC when people are SO friendly/ happy. Alas, in a few weeks that same heat will make them do some shocking things
