Netwerkcafé Amsterdam: Could it be time for you to follow your heart? workshop

Could it be your time to follow your heart?

I’m hosting another workshop in Amsterdam on February 18 for Netwerkcafé Amsterdam: Werken voor Elkaar.  

In this workshop, the focus is getting into your heart instead of your head.

Some key points on this topic are:

  • Why getting back into your heart is important in career& life.
  • How to know you are not in it and how to get into it more?

The benefits of following and leading from the heart are:

  • Clarity – always knowing what direction to take and what works best for you.
  • Ease & Flow – to your life and work. No more hustle or extra effort.
  • Confidence – you can always count on yourself. No more second-guessing!
  • FUN – creating life and choosing a career on your own terms is wonderful and let’s face it, FUN

Guided Episode #10 – How I flourished when I stopped trying to fit in.


“Your first impression is your ONLY impression.” Petra Fisher, talking on your presence on LinkedIn.


Petra and I met a few years ago when I attended a great workshop of hers on LinkedIn.  At the event I really got a feel of who Petra is, and she does not disappoint. Fun, sarcastic and just straight-forward about the things that matter the most: YOU and bringing out who you REALLY are in your LinkedIn profile. You could say we have this, being true to yourself, in common.

During the interview she even makes me more aware of how I’m not showing up in my profile! YUP the interviewer becomes the interviewee.  I left it ALL of that in, including our funny false start. You see, it wouldn’t make sense to edit out what makes this truly authentic with a woman who embodies that to the very core of her essence. So, in honor of that I kept it REAL & true to us both. Enjoy.

In this interview you will find out,

  • Petra’s journey in becoming a business owner while holding down a job.
  • How work environment doesn’t align with her personality
  • What she discovered by wearing jeans instead of a suit
  • The one time she took a job but it wasn’t quite her thing.
  • Using her strategy of following her heart (in her words, gut) in chosing how she wants to work (or IF she wants to that day), who she wants to work with, etc…
  • That being herself instead of playing a role made her work feel like magic.

Petra has been featured on local TV and podcasts around the globe

She shares her tips freely through her blog (when she remembers)

A New way of working together

I’ve recently created a new coaching approach that is easy, affordable, and available to everyone to start NOW.

I decided that 2019 is the year I want to coach more people. And because that is my mission, I wanted to make it easy for anyone who is ready for coaching to be able to have access to coaching AND find the right approach for them.

These coaching sessions are named Jump into your heart, are intended to help anyone (yes it is open to both men and women) to get started in coaching as soon as today. I love what I do so why not make it easier.  This is the newest offer out of the 3 ways we can work together. The other 2 options are the online program: Full Heart Meditation program & my signature coaching program: Follow your heartIf you take a look that one got a bit of revamp on pricing as well! 

When you love what you do, the numbers aren’t what matter, it is about the people who have big dreams ready to be realized. I want to be the coach for them/you! 

If you are ready, I would love for you to be my next client!

A fresh new year to start speaking from your heart!

Next living room session is January 23, 2019

Happy new year! This will be the first living room session of the Speak from your heart for 2019. These meetings have become really special, supportive, and most of all, FUN! 

Since March of 2018, I began these living room sessions out of a longing to connect more with women.  I wanted to make it should be easy for any one to come,  a place where it can be fun, and to make it a small group so it could be safe to speak about those really deep things that lie inside us. What I have seen over the last several months is that more women are joining me ready to share their stories, their laughter, and also(big bonus), their food! I really enjoy meeting each of you who come to join in our meeting.

Could you be ready to join us for the next one? 
We would love to have you! ♥

Here is how we roll with these meetings.  Every month I host this event in the comfort of my home (otherwise known as, the living room). Together, we create a safe place for us to feel comfortable and able to talk about what resides deep in our hearts. All topics are open. There will be no photos of attendees, no live streams, no videos, or anything of the sort.  We hold a pact that all things shared in the room are not for the public.  Keeping it confidential, keeps us safe and allows us to open our hearts.

As always it is open for 8 women. Tea, Coffee, and snacks are provided.  We are happy to receive your baked goods and snacks if you would like to share some. 🙂

In order to secure one of these 8 spots, please “purchase” a ticket at the link provided. It is a free event. However, some details will not be published and therefore by purchasing a ticket and providing an email, you will receive more details about the event AND your spot will be reserved for this month.

5 + 5 =

Love is me.

Twist, twist, twist

Muscle around the bone.

Blood rushes,


The complexity of these tissues

to make one position in space.

A machine of flesh, organ and cell.

Big, small and in between.

All of this…is me.

Twisting in Space.

Working my body to fit in position.

Not a position I chose for myself.

Not entirely.

Some fits and some constraints.

When the twisting is no longer possible.



My bones have grown weary

to be in this constricted place.

From MY mind.

From Scolding.


None of it my natural design.

But one I did Embrace.

One I gave to be mine

Because of some flaw I thought I was;

Not Good Enough

Not worthy

and Lacking.

It’s not true.

It is a lie.

I am not the muscle, bone, blood or cell.

I am the one who surrounds

who holds this possibility

who is the thing

that is bigger than what

my eyes can see

It is a space held by ME.

Who am I?





and forever shall it be.

Scaredy cats do not follow the call of their hearts. LOVE Warriors do.

 You know those times where you have heard someone say, “Oh things will never change.” or “That is just the way has always been and the way it will always be.”  Those are the people who missed the call. They might complain and get frustrated but they don’t move on the call. The one that the heart has been telling them to act on. And now, they feel that there is nothing to be done. They drown out the sound of what they know in their hearts can change. Why? Because it feels really scary. A call from the heart is almost always asking of you to step out of your wonderful comfort zone. We can’t be all things to all problems but if you are in a situation and you get a nudge from your intuition, gut feeling, then that is your heart saying, “Hey Susan, you can do something about this. Go.  Do it.” I had an experience just like that a few years back.  And I was scared, most definitely!  But here’s the thing, when you step into your heart, you are claiming your LOVE Warrior-ness and stepping away from the scaredy cat who is afraid to make something different than what it was. Now, listen I feel I must put a disclaimer here. There is NO shame in saying no when it is too much for you.Today is about warriors so…hang for a minute with me, k?

I recently saw a great example of a love warrior in a online community of women I’m in.  She shared with us how she jumped into a situation that is scary and offered her love and support. She was asking for our prayers and love to support her through it. Without going into full details, because it is not my story, she was answering a call that came to her before her friend reached out.  She had an intuitive hit and then the next day, her friend called.  What she found out was a shock to say the least.  But instead of being immobilized and thinking of herself, she booked a flight to be there  with her friend and her family. It was a call to LOVE.  Actionable LOVE.  Some of us probably might have said the nice safe things to comfort our friend and checked back to make sure she was getting the help she needed.  But this Love Warrior, dove right in. My jaw dropped, and my heart thumped when I read her story.  I knew this was an act of pure courageous, no second-guessing, no-doubt-about-it, LOVE. And honestly, I’m kinda proud to be her friend. Like WARRIOR proud. <3

It doesn’t always happen this way for all of us. It sometimes comes in the small moments.  Take for example, the other day when a lady approached the cash register while I was in the middle of being serviced and asked for a shopping bag.  The bag cost 10 cents of which she didn’t have. I took the time to look and low and behold that was the only coin I had. 10 cents.  In my mind, it was meant for her.  She responded, “I can’t pay you back,” holding up a bigger bill, “but I will get the next person.”  I smiled wide and eyes shining, “That is a very good way to pay me back. Thank you.”  Also, standing behind me were many witnesses to this event (probably a bit impatient ones). I couldn’t help but think of the possible ripple effect this might’ve had. I know not many wouldn’t have taken the time because of the busy holiday season, rushed schedules, and the many tasks yet to be done to finish our day. But I saw this was a moment that I could do something about. People always need us love warriors to show kindness, compassion and give LOVE when it is called for no matter the size of the event or circumstance. The heart will only call to the one who has the courage to do what it takes to deliver. And to me, that is what being a Love Warrior is all about!
