Boundary Setting

Boundary Setting

Meet Susan

Hi! I’m Susan. Leadership Coach. PR Strategist. Community Builder. Family Adventurer. I love life. Love my family. Love my work and love to travel. And I’ve never been very good at taking “no” for an answer. I’ve never been very good at sitting back and making choices about what I wanted to spend my time on, because quite frankly, I wanted it all. How could I have a fulfilling career and personal life too, without giving anything up?

These are choices that women, in particular, seem to have to make every day. How can we have a fulfilling career and a dynamic family life? How can we figure out what should be our priorities so what’s most important to us doesn’t suffer? How can we admit – out loud – that sometimes our achievements at work do mean more to us than our family, while often we will choose family over work? How can we build successful careers in the face of equally achieving spouses, children and big life choices?
It’s called Balance. It’s called figuring out our priorities, confidently living our lives, creating careers and building businesses that serve us. It’s called having it all at the same time. Is it possible? I’m here to tell you that YES it is!

Meet Susan. She’s a career-loving, family-centred, community-building Mom who would love to coach you to your truest answers to help you build that career, that business, that life that you know is possible for you.

Join me on my journey to build a deeply satisfying life.
