"Brave, practical, and true, Liz shares her magical journey for anyone brave enough (and generous enough) to want to go on the journey of a lifetime."--Seth Godin

"Witty and full of brilliant insight, Liz Bohannon delivers a much-needed antidote to a Western mindset careening between youthful entitlement and shame/fear-based inertia. Most of us who dream to be extraordinary have never learned first to be ordinary."--Wm. Paul Young, author of The Shack, Cross Road, and Lies We Believe about God

Seth Godin

"I met Liz more than a decade ago in Gulu, Uganda. Beginner's Pluck is a thoughtful book about what Liz has been strategically doing in the world, not merely optimistically hoping for. Her authentic voice is one I trust because I've seen what she's done. As you flip these pages, you won't want to be more like Liz. Instead, you'll want to figure out what your next steps are to release your passions, hopes, and love into a world which is in desperate need of someone just like you to engage it."

Bob Goff, hon. consul for the Republic of Uganda and author New York Times bestsellers Love Does and Everybody Always

"I am SO VERY GLAD this book exists. We have long needed Liz's expert voice speaking into the minds of dreamers and doers, the ones who have the ideas and want to execute, and the ones who are exhaustedly executing. We want purpose in our day, and Liz does it with her life and teaches it here."

Annie F. Downs, bestselling author of 100 Days to Brave and Remember God

"Witty and full of brilliant insight, Liz Bohannon delivers a much-needed antidote to a Western mindset careening between youthful entitlement and shame/fear-based inertia. Most of us who dream to be extraordinary have never learned first to be ordinary."

Wm Paul Young, author of The Shack, Cross Road, Eve, and Lies We Believe about God

"Liz's words, full of wit and inspiration, felt as though my best girlfriend pulled me in close for a lesson in life. As if she were writing just to me and declaring, 'You are enough.' Liz's honesty and candor about her journey of creating something bigger than herself are inspiring, practical, and life-giving."

Jamie Ivey, host of The Happy Hour with Jamie Ivey podcast and author of the bestselling book If You Only Knew: My Unlikely Unavoidable Story of Becoming Free

"Beginner's Pluck is a guide to living with purpose, believing we were created on purpose. Far from the exhausting message of 'hustle harder,' Liz invites us into the winsome adventure of building a life of passion, impact, and living into who we are created to be."

Rebekah Lyons, author of You Are Free

"Beginner's Pluck is the life map I wish I could have read decades ago. Liz is a shining example of the imperfect purpose we all aspire to do and be. WOW, what an authentic example to us all."

Jeff Shinabarger, founder of Plywood People

These words are necessary food for the soul for anyone feeling stuck, inadequate, or buried under the necessary pressure to be perfect. Brava, brava."
