Yanti Amos, Yoga Teacher and Marital Artist
I always knew I wanted to work with someone knowledgable, generous and who had herself struggled with her own issues as a business owner. Suzanne has been my coach throughout this learning curve and I cannot thank her enough for her guidance as I evolved and experienced the ups and downs of this phase of my teaching life.
Suzanne's material is world-class and I love her blend of can-do practical applicable knowledge, her engineer brain and her pedagogical academia. In my mentor sessions with Suzanne, she personally leads you through weekly deep dives with her special brand of intuitive wisdom and outstanding listening skills. Through our regular connection on email, the goal setting and advice received throughout the week, my own ideas grew into course content and I began to see the possibilities for upleveling my business into “evergreen” foundational growth.
I liken Suzanne to a really good book editor and agent who helps in developing your “babies" and giving you confidence to put it out there in the world. She also helped me refine some of my concepts for easy digestion and learning by students. She puts words in my mouth - and because she gets me I love it! Worth mentioning is that Suzanne is a graphic design guru - which is important in terms of seeing your course take both conceptual and physical shape every step of the way.
There is no doubt in anyone’s mind that we are living through an extraordinary time of dislocation. But as Suzanne showed me, this is also an extraordinary opportunity for offering connection, learning and value to our communities wherever they may be located in the world.
