Celebrating this week's WOW, Susan, a writer and a fellow traveler on the reinvention road.  She's been working on expanding her tech knowledge of late, congrats on taking the leap!


1). In the last five years, what new belief, behavior or habit has most improved your life?

“If it’s a priority, you’ll find a way, if not, you’ll find an excuse.”

2). What is an unusual habit or an absurd thing that you love?

“Fresh, clean bedding with fresh clean pajamas and fresh clean self.”

3). What is the best purchase that you have made in recent memory?

“My car. I manifested it. I wrote a list of what I wanted in a car and I found it all in this car (the one thing I didn’t write down was the color, but I’m pleased with what I got)”

4). If you could have a giant billboard anywhere with anything on it, what would it say and why?

7). How has failure, or apparent failure, set you up for later success?  Do you have a “favorite failure” of yours?

“You learn how to handle it. You look for the lessons in it. I always want to go back and redo the thing and succeed to prove to myself that I can do the thing.”

8). What is the most memorable thing you have received in recent memory?

“A wonderful friend painted my aura on a rock. It’s pink, red, gold, blue. It’s beautiful.”

9). Who inspires you to be your best self?

“Me. I have to do it for me.”

10). What would you tell your 21 year old self?

“It’s your damn life. Pleasing others isn’t going to please you or bring you peace.”
