"It's not just about setting goals and laying out a plan to achieve them, it's more about creating a customized plan tailored to the individuals specific strengths and values. Susan helped me not just to reach a goal, but understanding why I want to reach it and the spirit behind reaching it. Sometimes the goals we set do not match the values we have and she has guided me to sort out what really matters and what is truly meaningful to me"
- Dr. Tim Scheuerman, D.C. Chiropractor

"Ney-Silverman Insurance Associates, LLC is an insurance agency with a growth spurt. Two experienced insurance brokers brought their years of experience and books of business together to take advantage of each other’s varied expertise.
Bringing together the client bases became the easy part. Melding long-time staff with new coworkers, schooled producers with ones new to insurance to make the office working environment coalesce into a happy family took work.
Susan provided the guidance that prompted each of us to work hard. Not just to work hard to make the agency grow, but the guidance to help us work to become a family."
- Ney-Silverman Insurance Associates, LLC (Mike N. and Bob S., owners)

Your guidance helped give me clarity on some very difficult judgment calls I needed to make. I believe your insights helped me make some very smart decisions.

"I wanted to thank you and share with you my continued success since I became your client. Before meeting with you I was over whelmed and a little disorganized. After meeting with you and putting to practical use the techniques that you taught me I have completely turned around how I feel great about myself and how I am viewed by others. When you assisted me in putting together my business plan, I appreciated the way you let me find a way to work with the way I .feel I need to work. Rather than telling me I had to do things a certain way. When my business plan was completed my CEO was very happy with the way all of my goals were set and the different methods that I was going to institute to achieve them. I have seen a 25% increase in profitability, and I owe a lot of that you and your coaching."
- Eric Eisenberg, BNI General Manager

"I had never worked with a Life Coach before. I had been working on completing a photography portfolio as well as struggling with the direction that I wanted to go in with photography in general. Susan helped me find that direction. She helped me map out things that needed to be accomplished and roadblocks that were stopping me from achieving specific goals. I was able to achieve what I wanted to, and I don't think I would have had the focus to do it without Susan's help."

- Gary C. – Former Executive CorporateVP turned Instructor at a major university

"Susan's Positive Self Talk workshop gave me a whole new perspective on how to approach so many things in my life. By "coaching" my inner voice to speak in a positive light I've been able to take the concept of a can-do attitude to entirely different levels. I've also found these positive self talk skills are critical for my children and I've been using them as a tool to teach my children that they truly can do whatever they put their mind to."
- Kelly V

- Greg B.

We took things slowly do I didn’t feel overwhelmed, and Susan has been a committed partner every step of the way."
- Jamie S.

"Thank you for all of the assistance, guidance and wisdom you have given me over the past seven months. I have truly benefited and grown from what I’ve learned through our coaching sessions. Quite often, we lose along the way, basic fundamental principles that if maintained will help to balance our personal/professional lives – as well as maintain happiness, and encourage passion. Well, you have helped me become more aware and have gotten me on the right path to achieve just that – balance, happiness and passion. Your instruction and encouragement has helped my professional, emotional, physical and spiritual well being. Thank you again!"
―Bessie B. Customer Service Manager for a large corporation

I attended Susan’s MindCamp™ For Women Professionals 11 January 2013. I was looking for focus in my career, with my family, and planning for new learning experiences. As the New Year began I felt a bit overwhelmed. The half-day MindCamp brought together an energetic and diverse group of professional women, all anxious to learn and grow. The follow-up strategy session (that was offered to each participant) helped me evaluate my options, put a name on things that were bothering me and provided positive, tactile things to do to keep my focus and move forward. Thanks Susan!
―Candia Campbell

Thank you, Susan, for a great Mind Camp for Women. I was really excited to be able to meet with so many interesting women and learn how we can re-start our lives—right now! You offered such helpful advice on how to retrain my mind and habits and how to get my life moving in the right direction. I really appreciated the variety of ages and experiences of the women who attended. Their insight helped me understand my own experiences better. This was such a valuable experience. I can’t thank you enough.
―Carol Ann Lloyd Stange

Susan’s mindcamp is a great way to take a step back from your hectic lives and take a look at the things we often overlook on a daily basis. The mindcamp had wonderful feel good activities that help stimulate positive thinking and personal growth. After my first session I learned positive thinking techniques that immediately made my day a brighter and more positive. I would highly recommend taking the mindcamp.

The one–on-one session with the Peoplemap assessment is a great way to get a strong insight of your personality as well as other personalities you deal with on a normal basis. It helped me better understand my strengths and weaknesses, how to act on those to be successful, and how to create successful relationships in the work place.
