in the advertising industry. Twelve years into her entrepreneurial run, Lisa was confronted with a terminal disease that made her re-evaluate what was important in life and what she wanted to leave the world in terms of contribution.
As she writes in her memoir, Crossing the Silly Bridge: “When our hearts speak and we listen, we find ourselves.”
With a new sense of consciousness, Lisa decided “I was not going to die without having first lived. Even if it was for just one day.”
Lisa listened to her heart and it led her, seemingly illogically, to the world of the horse. She studied with legendary horse whisperers and their disciples. She learned about the interpersonal journey and presence. She transformed. She came alive in a way she had never been before. She did not die. There’s no trace of disease. Her companies thrived. She decided to pack it up and share what she had learned with the rest of the world.
Which she does to this day at Vista Caballo.
