This blog is here to help you, to answer your questions, to inspire you to think, and push yourself to be the best that you can be. I promise to write with your best interests in mind and to think from your point of view because I have already walked a thousand miles in your shoes. I promise to give my candid opinions and frankly share my observations and practical advice.
Be your best,
About the Author
Liz Steblay is the founder
& and CEO of PrōKo Consulting, a modern talent model that represents professional independent consultants on projects with Fortune 500 clients, similar to how Creative Artists Agency represents top actors in Hollywood.
In building her business during the last seven years, Liz has interviewed scores of consultants, and for those her company selects to represent, she coaches them on personal branding, promotion, and positioning. Additionally, she often advises people on the pros and cons of becoming a “free agent” or self-employed, a step she herself successfully took over 10 years ago.
Before creating PrōKo, Liz was a consultant for 20 years, including 5 years with PwC Consulting and 15 years serving Fortune 500 clients such as Intuit, Clorox, Levi Strauss, NetApp, and Franklin Templeton Investments.
She has an MBA from the Marshall School of Business at the University of Southern California and lives in San Francisco. When not working she enjoys traveling, skiing, golfing, flying, and riding her Ducati motorcycle.
