Hi, I'm Lisa Fabrega.

You’re here not just to make a lot of money or to just make an impact. You’re here to leave a legacy of change with your work. You’re here to play and lead BIG and you won’t let anything compromise your vision.

I’m here to take you on the inner leadership journey that will get you there. Because there is no strategy or blueprint out there that is better than the one that already lies within you.


phew.

Maybe it’s Venus retrograde. Maybe it’s the moon in Gemini. Maybe it’s month three in self isolation. But this weekend I went on a wild ride with my emotions and I found some surprising desires within that I had not been fully conscious of.  Or rather, the desires were always there, but I wasn’t allowing them into my consciousness because my “old, small self” had secretly pulled the wool over my eyes and told me they were “pipe dreams”. I had no idea that my ego had done this subconsciously. It’s amazing how tricky our egos can be and come off sounding so realistic and rational. I’m consistently learning the very thing that I teach, so I get what you …

the tyranny of “perfect”

I recently wrote this line in an email to one of my mentors “Being blind to my sh&t is just about the most terrifying thing I can think of. NO THANK YOU.” After I wrote this, it got me thinking about blindspots, and how terrifying it can feel to also FACE them. After speaking with so many people over the years, I’ve seen people turn DOWN doing Capacity Work, specifically because they’re afraid they’re going to see their blindspots. What if they finally have to face their marriage is no longer working? (or is working)What if seeing their blindspots means they’re going to have to make some hard changes to their careers or businesses they aren’t sure they can “handle”? …

Playing possum

Ever heard of the phrase “playing possum”? It comes from the Virginia Opossum, who “plays dead” every time a potential predator is near. It looks like the picture above (that possum is fully alive). A few years ago I was talking to a client on the phone about her self-sabotaging patterns that came up every time she started to get some serious momentum in her business. “Lisa, it’s like every time I start to get momentum, I can feel this part of me that gets really whiny. Then I start to feel physically tired and overwhelmed, like I just can’t handle it all. And then everything starts to fall off track, I stop showing up for my team like I should, …

Tinder drama

There’s this funny thing that happens on dating apps… I always notice that the people who put “no drama” or a “drama-free” person in their profiles are the people who are the BIGGEST drama queens/kings. Ever notice that? When I was in my twenties, I used to do the same thing. I’d talk up a storm about how I didn’t understand why drama was so attracted to me, I just wanted to be at peace! But as I went on my personal development journey, I realized I was the one who caused 95% of my own drama. Either through my own lack of emotional capacity at the time or through attracting people who loved drama to give me the drama …

small fires

Ever seen one of Queen Elizabeth’s “addressing the nation” speeches? She doesn’t usually give them (the last one she did was during World War II). But she did give one when the pandemic broke out, which was a really big deal. And watching it was watching a master in action. I was reading an analysis of her speech later, written by a leadership expert and he said exactly what I was feeling. Great leaders know how to give you the truth and not sugarcoat it, so you’re aware of the seriousness of the situation. But they also strike a note of hope to empower you to get through it.  Getting that balance right both within yourself and with others is …
