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.


The most important question you can ask yourself, ever.

It’s not “new” news that Aretha Franklin passed away last week. But as a long time admirer of Aretha’s, I felt both sad and happy for her. Sad because I’m always sad when a person I admire moves on. And happy for the legacy she created and left behind to flourish long after her physical presence. As I was reading through beautiful articles remembering her, her talent, and her contributions to the civil rights movement, I came across a quote of hers that left me slightly shaken. In a really good way. The quote said: Being a singer is a natural gift. It means I’m using to the highest degree possible the gift that God gave me to use. I’m happy with that.

Why I’m so over “high performance”

I know what you’re thinking. She calls herself a leadership mentor for high performing womxn and she’s dissing high performance?   And you’re not wrong. I am a coach to “high performing womxn”. Womxn who are here to make big impact and leave legacies that change the world. They have a big vision & they’re not here to play small by any means!

It drives me crazy when I see people peddling that on social media ads. That is simply untrue.   When you …

Your “discipline” is not the problem

When I first came to, I didn’t know where I was and I felt confused. There I was slumped over in a beauty shop chair, with three hazy women surrounding me. Slowly, I realized it was my grandmother, my mother, and the hairstylist all looking at me with concern. My grandmother lifted my arm, and as she let go, my arm fell like spaghetti back down onto the arm of the chair. I had NO energy. I could barely move. You are stopping this diet immediately Lisa, said my indignant grandmother.   I don’t remember how I got from the salon to my grandmother’s house. But once we were sitting at the large oak table in her kitchen, she pulled …

Could this common spiritual teaching be harming your legacy?

Does feeling rage make you “broken”? Do so-called “negative” emotions mean something is wrong with you? Recently, I sought guidance and comfort during a stressful time, and I found myself on Instagram looking for wisdom from a spiritual teacher who many leaders trust and follow. Instead, I found a post that disappointed me. It talked about strong emotions in such a damaging way, teaching us to feel shame for them. It’s a common refrain among spiritual guides that if you experience “negative” emotions, that you are somehow broken. I believe that’s just flat wrong. But it’s such a prevalent societal belief that we all subconsciously believe we’re broken in some way. I know because I uncover this in my high-performer …

What to do when the unthinkable happens

*This blog post is part of our new Legacy Leader Series: a blog series for leaders who want to navigate the current chaos in the world, embody the crucial qualities that leaders need to stay on the forefront and amplify their legacies in the world. ……… The dreams started in May. I was 9 months pregnant and didn’t know how I got that way. I was upset — I hadn’t planned for this. I didn’t want to give birth. How did I even get pregnant? Or there was a baby that had been placed in my care, and I kept freaking out that I’d forget to feed it and it would die. I told my friend Jen about these strange, …
