Heyyyy I’m Suzanne
I help thousands of women embrace and share their power and influence in their personal lives, businesses, and Human Resources positions by sharing about real life, helping them market without the muck, and developIng HR strategies that make recruitment and retention easier.
My philosophy in life is we make things way too hard.
Whether it's business or human resources or just life, following the old school rules or cookie cutter advice can leave you confused, exhausted, or just plain uninspired. And if you need a complicated process to do something, it's way too hard and is keeping you from doing something more important and making progress.
Life & Wellness Coaching
After a lifetime of struggle and battling exhausting and limiting chronic illness, I decided to turn that experience, passion and RESULTS into help for other women. Nobody should do this alone. I am a Certified Wellness Coach through the International Association of Wellness Professionals (IAWP) and a Holistic Health Practitioner (HHP) and have spent a lifetime studying what makes us tick in order to create a life full of peace, potential, and fulfillment. And giggles...always giggles.
Business & Marketing Strategy
Visionaries and innovators didn't make an impact by doing what everyone else is doing. They put on their blinders and they create their own path. And it works. But it is not always comfortable nor easy to navigate how to get started. Guuurrrllll ... I would be embarrassed to tell you how many freebies I downloaded in the beginning. And the failed attempts at all of the things. Mercy. In the end, the thing that changed everything was doing my own thing. Every. Single. Time.
I spent over 10 years as a successful Etsy seller who was not only a Featured Seller but also featured in a book for Etsy Sellers. As an innovator in the Etsy space, I built a large audience doing things that are just now catching on.
I've been in the online coaching space since 2015 and know a thing or two about what it takes to get seen and create a brand that resonates with your customers. If you are a service based online entrepreneur, a handmade or Etsy seller, or a brick and mortar business, I'm here to help you get seen and stand out without making it complicated.
Human Resources & Training Strategy
Human Resources isn't what it used to be. Businesses count on their HR professionals to be strategic and innovative in this climate, none of which is taught in college. In my 20+ years in Human Resources and Training up to Director level, I've launched multiple programs and initiatives and have been called, "The best HR person I've ever worked with," and "At the top of the list of HR people I've known," by my supervisors. And no, I don't regurge what is in the complicated 20 step HR books that put you to sleep after Chapter 2. I use common sense and techniques that WORK to get employees engaged and create environments where you aren't selling your soul to try to get good candidates or keep top employees.
