At 26 years old, Liz Wheeler has already co-authored an Amazon bestseller, was the youngest person to serve on the Board of Zoning Appeals in her hometown in Ohio, ran her own consulting business, and helped veterans connect with jobs. Liz is the host of Tipping Point on One America News Network, reaching up to 15 million homes every night. She is a frequent speaker to conservative groups and spoke at CPAC 2016.

Quote from her nomination: “Tipping Point takes aim at millennials, the issues we care about, the challenges we face, and our opinion on national security, entitlements, immigration, foreign policy, Washington divisiveness, and it all affects our daily lives.”

What was the biggest factor in your success?

My family. (No brainer, right?) I was fortunate to grow up in a loving home. My parents encouraged me to think for myself, educate myself, and respect other people. They taught me competition is mutually beneficial (what else can you expect growing up as the second of five siblings?), and that wealth isn’t limited, it’s created. They also instilled in me that accomplishments on paper are exactly that… but my true purpose on Earth is to share the light of Christ with others through my actions. That’s what I try to do.

What advice would you give to other millennials?

Speak up. Don’t be afraid. Ignore people who use your age against you. For the first time, our generation is the largest potential voting bloc in the presidential election. The future of our nation lies in our hands. We’re part of a new generation who hasn’t had to physically fight for our freedom (excepting the noble few), but don’t forget the value of liberty or the privilege of self-government and our responsibility to pass it on to those who come after us.

Does the GOP have a future and why?

If they stick to their principles. The GOP has strayed from the idea that political parties are supposed to center around principles, not power or people. The values of the GOP (limited government, individual freedom) are timeless. Whether or not the party itself can remain the strongest avenue to promote and protect those principles is up to them and their skill at communicating the value of liberty to people of every background (without resorting to infighting and nonsense).
