From overcoming childhood traumas to writing for magazine publications and opening a talent agency in Japan, Elise Krentzel shares how when learning to heal from our past, we can not only find opportunities to become a better version of ourselves but inspire others to live the lives they truly want.


Elise Krentzel began writing and traveling the globe as a teenager. First published at 17 in rock magazines in the USA and Canada, she went on to achieve many firsts. She introduced punk rock to the Japanese market, was the Tokyo Bureau Chief of Billboard Magazine, the first foreign DJ on FM radio in Japan, and later founded a digital travel publishing company with GPS in the pre-internet days. She blogged before it was a "thing". She runs a PR and Editorial agency, ghostwrites non-fiction, and coaches up-and-coming badass young women. Her greatest joy is her son and helping others heal their trauma. Elise is currently working on book number two in her trilogy.
