Liz in Day Parts
In the morning Liz O’Donnell is a writer and a blogger. In 2016, Liz the writer wrote Mogul, Mom and Maid. A book about the challenges of a working mom and how home life impacts careers.
As her parents have aged, she has moved into the role as caregiver. Liz blogs about working daughters and balancing job and caregiver at workingdaughter.com.
Liz then moves to her day job at Double Forte a PR, marketing and social media firm.
At night she changes hats to mom, caregiver and local supporter of women entrepreneurs in Boston through She Starts.
People are bombarded with so many social media platforms, different forms of advertising everywhere they look and the 24 hour news channels that the saturation level is crazy. The more relevant you can make what you are doing, the more impactful it will be.
Liz the “Intrapraneur”
Liz O’Donnell works as the Sr. VP at Double Forte. She describes herself as an entrepreneur but also likes the security of her day job where she describes herself as an “intrapreneur”. Liz has worked on and off with her boss Lee for over 25 years. It’s a great fit for her. It’s a another example of how life and work meld together.
