Liz Chism

CLC Enterprises, Inc.

Description
Liz Chism is a business operations Jedi! When she and her husband first started a craft brewery over 10 years ago, it was normal to work 12-15 hours per day. She wore a lot of hats (Owner, Master Brewer, and Operations Manager, to name a few), and was reaching burnout and ready to start a family.

However, through creating and implementing effective systems and processes, she was able to turn 100+ hour work weeks into freedom, start a family, and leave her business for weeks at a time and have it run successfully without her.

With growing up in the trades, she now helps Contractors grow their businesses by helping them streamline their operations, create profitable systems and processes, and stop bleeding cash without wasting time or having systems become the dreaded task on their to-do list.

If Liz isn’t helping contractors with their businesses, you can find her helping her husband in his real estate business, homeschooling their three children, and enjoying adventures in the great outdoors with her family.
