About Susan

I first discovered my penchant to be an inspirational influence when I was 20 years old. I attended Skyline College in San Bruno, CA prior to moving on to a four-year university, and had been chosen to address my class in the valedictorian speech at  our graduation.

That speech turned out to be a high point in my life for a number of years. Writing it made me feel alive. Practicing it excited me. And delivering the speech made me feel, even at that young age, that I was doing what I was supposed to be doing with my life.

I had been on an educational track to help people through a psychology major. When I moved on to San Francisco State University, I started to look at my major from a “practical” side. I saw that I would need to obtain a master’s degree to be able to really earn a living. I was eager to get out of school and start working, and made the decision to change my major to business.

While my business degree did much to support what grew to become a successful marketing career, the feeding of my soul and the discovery of what I am really here to do has suffered.

The goal of my blog here is to share wisdom that I have  gained from everyday experiences that has led me to find a  greater sense of peace.

Other efforts include my two inspirational books about career change, Inner Architect: How to Build the Life You Were Designed to Live and Unleashing Your Soul, which were products of my resignation from my corporate marketing career in 2005.

Thank you for stopping by.

  1. Thanks to Face Book I found your site. I’ve been unemployed for several months after being in the same career path for 20 years, made a major move 3,000 miles to find work, ended a 12 year relationship with a man that wasn’t good for me and I have financial trouble. I am adventuring into unknown new territories. Your inspiring advice wil help me move forward with faith. Thank You!

  2. I came across your Blog when doing a word search on a particular idea I was working on for a sermon. I want to express to you my thanks for insights and wisdom. Reading through a few of your writings has been a blessing to me and I look forward to reading more at a later date as I have the time. I also intend to purchase your book “Unleashing Your Soul.”

    The Lord has given you a gift and you are responding well in using that gift for His glory.

    God bless you and again, thank you.
