We all have limitless potential locked inside of us.
I’m here to help you see yours and achieve the success you deserve.
Get the profitable business you deserve while staying in line with your core values. Sound like a dream come true?
You set out in business with one thing in mind – to help people. You desperately want to share the knowledge you have and build a better world but it’s a struggle. You feel stuck, overwhelmed and exhausted. You dream of making enough money to support your family, treating them to the holidays they deserve, while staying in line with your core values. But it’s just not going to plan!
I’ve been where you are and I can tell you – if I can do it, you can too. Let me show you the way.
Hi, I’m Suzanne. I’ve been there too, and I’ve come out of the other side.
For years I built my own business, juggling family commitments, being pulled in different directions with different pressures and expectations. Working hard, often feeling lonely and isolated and questioning whether it’s all worth it. In the end, the pressure became too much and with the arrival of social media on the scene after twelve years, I gave in and closed my first business and went back to my corporate career.
I knew it wasn’t right for me long term so I took a leap of faith and accepted redundancy
When I was offered redundancy I saw this as my second chance and grabbed it with both hands. I refused to settle or believe that my best years were over just because I was a forty-or-fifty-something and decided to get out there and make this time count by using my skills and my life wisdom. I was tired of corporate life, the politics, the endless meetings and conference calls where it seemed that nothing was ever decided. I needed to change my life and I wanted to create a meaningful business on my own terms.
It hasn’t all been plain sailing but now I have a profitable business I’m proud of
It hasn’t always been easy – I’ve probably worked harder during this time than at any other in my career. And believe me, it’s been a huge learning curve. In the beginning I refused to niche! I’ve had to learn what marketing content is and how to use social media to grow my business, how to build and update my website, what Apps to use to manage and streamline my business and so the list goes on.
But it’s also been one of the most rewarding, life-changing and exhilarating time of my life. I learned all of the skills I needed to build a profitable business that gives me joy and makes me proud – and now I’m on a mission to help you do the same!
My philosophy in life is simple, that this is not a dress rehearsal! This is it your one chance and we owe it to ourselves to make the best of it. Success means a different thing to each person I speak with, but what is important is that you find out what it really means to you and create a life that works for you.
