Hi! I’m Susan. And I’m on a personal mission to help other women who want it all and have it all at the same time.
I’ve never been very good at taking “no” for an answer, or making choices, or giving anything up – ever. And there was a time when I was having trouble figuring out how to align my choices so I was true to my work, true to my family, and – most importantly – true to me. So after many years of soul-searching, research and training, I have designed a process that guided me to my answers, and I can guide you to yours as well.
To me, having it “all” means keeping everything in my life that is most important to me, and saying “no” to things that aren’t. All, to me, is loving and building a successful career and business while having all the time I want for raising my family, spending time with my husband, enjoying the great outdoors and going on crazy family adventures around the globe.
For me, that “all” meant parting ways with the corporate communications ladder not long after having our first daughter in 2001.
Up to that point, I had thrived on the fast, exhilarating pace of managing media issues for leaders in government and industry; planning and delivering kick-ass PR campaigns for government, corporate and not-for-profit organizations; and building important programs to help improve the economy; highlight the environmentally and socially conscious side of industry; and deliver meaningful social services to people who needed them.
BUT WHAT DOES THIS MEAN TO YOU?
It means I’ve been around the block. I’ve seen a look inside almost every kind of organization in this country and do you know what has struck me the most?
THERE ARE SO MANY UNHAPPY PEOPLE OUT THERE.
People who think they have to punch a clock and live the daily grind in textbook fashion in order to eek out a living. People who think they have to be resigned to a way of living because they are afraid to change or they don’t know any other way to do it.
THERE IS ANOTHER WAY! YOUR WAY.
Success is very personal. And nobody gets to decide what success looks like for you, except you. You can have the life/career/business you have dreamed of – or perhaps you have not dared to dream of having.
I would love to help you dream and connect with what you really want to do next – and chart a way, together, so you don’t have to give anything up that’s important to you.
In fact… you can have it all. Even at the same time.
