I found Susanna Shamim at a pivotal point in my life. Having been an executive for many years and a company man, I came to a crossroads which forced me to reinvent my career late in my professional life. Working with Susanna, I came to the realization and awareness of the expertise and talents I had acquired and how I could leverage them into a consulting business and as a keynote speaker. With Susanna’s coaching I found a new voice. She was instrumental in helping me build a new brand for my business. She is very gifted at drawing out the best in people. I am a fan of Susanna and recommend her highly.

As an inventor and artist, I felt that I needed to find a job but Susanna guided me to see that I needed to follow my passions and the work would come.  I believe that I’m doing what I’m meant to do.  I have found my vocation and I get joy and fulfillment from the inventions I create to help people.  I’m extremely happy with my engagement with Susanna and she also rebranded my experience in a very professional bio, resume and profile that is in line with my career aspirations.

Susanna is a great leadership coach and she helped me realize my self-worth.  She gave me the courage to leave my job and start my own firm.  She also elevated my experience in my resume and profile and coached me to navigate difficult and uncomfortable situations at my company.   I’m so grateful I found Susanna.  Again, thank you for everything.

I found Susanna after I sold my Publishing Business and was at a crossroads in my life and didn’t really know what I could do as all I knew was publishing.  Working with Susanna, I discovered the many skills I had developed as a business owner.  She gave me a voice to position this experience into a new businesses.  With her patient listening, coaching and guidance, I’ve found a way to market myself that I could not have found on my own.

Scott L.

Lifestyle Magazine and Website, (Former Publisher of Tiger Beat and Teen Beat Magazines)

I was fortunate to find Susanna through LinkedIn.  Initially I engaged her services because I wanted to return to employment after being in  business for myself.  I was feeling that I had taken my business as far as I could go.  Susanna helped me discover that I’m an entrepreneur at heart and I needed to freshen my business model and develop new service offerings to diversify.  I came out of our coaching engagement with a renewed sense of my abilities and passion for why I got into business in the first place.  Working with Susanna I began to see myself as a leader and gained more self confidence.  I’ll be back to Susanna for ongoing support and guidance in retooling my business.
