Hi, I’m Lisa & I’m the host of
Get f***ing Real

She is smart, she is funny and she loves the word fuck. She has been mentoring 6 and 7-figure entrepreneurs for over 20 years. She coaches top coaches, teaches brilliant teachers and intuitively guides the most woo woo intuitives. She’s been a millionaire entrepreneur (for a minute) and a corporate flunky. And her GFR moments (in life and business) are countless, which makes her superbly qualified to host the GFR podcast!

What she knows for sure...when you Get Fucking Real you make a bigger difference and have fewer regrets...period.

About your host, Lisa Cherney

In 2014, after 15 years in business, Lisa Cherney got f**cking real and dismantled her successful 7-Figure business.

She was proud of the financial accomplishment, but burdened by the “monster” she created. It did not make her happy.

To make things worse her “6-Figures On Your Terms” events were helping 100s of entrepreneurs and her refreshing “Juicy Marketing” training was in high-demand around the world.


But Lisa learned that just because something is successful and people like it, doesn’t mean you have to keep doing it.

She always knew she had a low tolerance for not being happy (after all, she left a “successful” corporate career, with companies like AT&T and Lipton at age 28), but now she knows her mission is to help other mission-based business owners get fucking real so they can get out of their own way and help more people!

Lisa Cherney is host of the ground-breaking Get F**cking Real Podcast and founder of the GFR Squad, a lively community that gives people permission to get f**cking real in order to better fulfill their mission.

Other fun fucking real facts about Lisa are:

She is lazy (This inspires lots of creativity on how to get shit done with the least amount of effort)

She loves TV (This is how she unwinds and her TiVo is one of her most prized possessions)

She can’t spell for shit (Another outlet for creativity)

She likes being naked outside (A discovery made later in life, so you will not be successful Googling “Lisa Cherney college streaking”)


She didn’t want kids (Until 10 years into her marriage - She has one 13 year old and is convinced she got it “right” the first time.)

Her husband of 23 years is way cooler than her (He is an engineer who worked for Haagen Dazs, a chiropractor, a singer/songwriter and the World’s Greatest Dance Dad)

She is not a certified coach, does not have a marketing degree or an MBA (but mentors lots of people who have these credentials and she doesn’t hold it against them)

She is from New Jersey and her parents are from Brooklyn (Thus partially explaining her love of the F word)
