A Summit for those of us who aren't about to let some pesky chronic illness hold us back from our dreams and our passions.


You are passionate about building a business that gives you freedom, lights up your dreams, and brings stability for your family.  But...you have chronic illness.

You have the drive.  You have the ambition.  You have the smarts and the creativity.  You know what needs to be done.


Brain fog is real.  Days when you are too tired to lift a finger to a keyboard are real.  Moments when you don't want to talk to another human...even on social media...are real.  Days when you get escorted to the hospital or the clinic or the doctor (who let's face it...is not much help) are real.


I know because I do it every day.

This Summit is a heart centered project of mine.  I want every single woman out there with big dreams and a pesky chronic illness (or 5) to know that you CAN have a thriving business while successfully managing a chronic illness at the same time.

It's time for all of us to rise and show that we are just as badass...just as determined...and just as worthy as our counterparts who brag about "slaying" day and night.  And we can do it in far less time with far less negative impact on our health.

How to Shift From Imposter Syndrome to Expert

Many of us suffer from imposter syndrome. Never feeling like we know enough, can keep up with others, or are truly and expert. This leads to feeling as though we have nothing to share, especially when we are having a rough day with our own health. Imposter Syndrome is a part of comparing yourself to others but it also is fed by the whole act as if and fake till you make it mentality. I say enough! It's time to let all of that go and be here today, honoring and embracing the beautiful magical being you are. We do this by reframing the idea of acting as if into the idea of acting as though. A recognition of who we are and of the gifts we have to share with the world. A shifting of our focus to embracing today rather than looking to the future.

Using a 90 day strategy is a great way to break down what you are working to accomplish in your business and help you achieve success.

Suzanne will cover the basics of creating a 90 day strategy and how you can make sure that roadblocks don’t get you derailed. We will talk about the mindset piece and how to make sure tasks still get done when you’re down and out.

Finding Center: Mindfulness, Chronic Illness, and You

Mindfulness has as many definitions as there are people that practice it. I like to look at it as simply being aware of the current moment. Because when dealing with chronic illness, many of us find it very hard to live in the now. We spend our time thinking about the future, mourning the past, and wondering what else life could be. Mindfulness brings you back. You take observation of what is happening in this moment alone and only in your sphere of life. When you do this, you are able to have better control over how your body reacts to your illness. I saw it described once like this, “The waves are still there but you are more calmly riding them.” Being in the moment gives you a deeper sense of balance and this can lead to a more fulfilled life with chronic illness. In this presentation, I will share with you the steps that you must take to start your journey to wellness. A journey that will help you find balance and restore the vital amazing light inside us all.

From Inspired to Action Taker

The one thing that made a difference in my business was creating a plan. When you plan, you are setting your business up for success in ways you can't imagine. It gives you direction and you know the things you need to work on to move your business forward, which is important in any business but especially when you are dealing with a chronic illness. Even with a plan, you can feel overwhelmed. I can totally relate, can you? Well I am here to show you the planning strategy I used that helped me go from a struggling business owner who seemed to be always working but making no progress in my business to a productive as hell entrepreneur checking things off my list like nobody's business!

Energize Your Body, Energize Your Life

Do you constantly feel exhausted and drained? Do you wake up tired, struggle through the day, and count the hours until you can crawl in bed at night? I know the feeling VERY well. I struggled with fatigue for years and it was HARD! I lacked focus with my work and the energy to fully enjoy my life. I was just “getting by.” At the time, I thought what I was feeling was “normal” and just the side effect of being busy. But I eventually learned that I could be busy and STILL have plenty of energy. Believe it or not, your energy levels are within your control. While you may think you’re destined to live with fatigue forever and that it’s just part of who you are – this is NOT the case. There are likely some key ways that you’re unknowingly sabotaging your energy. I saw this with myself and I see it with most of my clients. While in the short term it might be a bit of a bummer to learn, you’re getting in your own way, in the long term, this is great news! It means your problems are fixable, and who doesn’t want to hear that? Imagine what would be possible if you felt energetic from the time you woke up… to the time you went to sleep.

How Learning to Rest Can Create More Opportunities in Business + Tips to Create Restful Routines that Inspire Peace & Creativity

It may seem that creating a longer to do list and engaging in work for long periods of time will produce more results, but what if, just like taking care of our health by rest and restoration to reach our goals, we could do the same in our business. It is counter-cultural and unnatural to consider that slowing down can help us speed up achieving our goals, but it can be true. As women who have already been “warned” by our bodies already through health challenges, we have an advantage of knowing the power of self-care and intention. Health challenges are an opportunity for growth and for doing things differently. As women who want to thrive, even with health challenges, we cannot wear our bodies out to build our businesses up. We must learn how to do more with less. It takes intention and belief. Join me as we discuss the meaning of rest, the power of rest & tools to incorporate the right amount of rest and work into our daily lives & businesses for optimal success.

Shift Out Of The "I Get Sick When I Work" Cycle

I'll teach you the simple and effective ways I use and I teach my clients to shift your thoughts (therefore your reality) so you can release the mindset that you'll always be sick or every time you launch, take on new clients, or do something new in your business a health fare is going to pop up. This was my #1 mindset block in creating a successful business and if I can shift it - you can to!
