Life & Personal Evolution

I wasn’t sure if life coaching was what I needed to help me reach my goals, but after working with Suzanne, a powerful transformation took place in my life. I love getting up in the morning, I delight in my children and my wife, and I am allowing myself to enjoy the journey. Suzanne’s guidance, support, and honest feedback taught me to embrace my unique approach to life and career and live in a way that truly brings me joy.
-Duane A. Mattes, Medical Sales Representative

I’ve worked with Suzanne Ferguson over the last 4 years and I began the coaching process because I wanted to move on with own business. During my time with Suzanne as my coach, I completed my book “The Fairy Ferns”, stabilized my life’s goals and am now working to exceed them with abundance and the grace of knowing that I deserve to attain all I desire. I have grown so much as a person and I am now much more centered in my own life.
-Pamela Kinkus, Author

“Thank you for helping me achieve more clarity in my thinking, feel motivated – and empowered – to devote time to introspection and personal growth, and articulate how I view the world and myself in relationship to it.”
-Rachel Steigerwalt, Program Coordinator, Family Services of Western PA, Professional Pianist, and Amateur Athlete

Having a personal coach helped me to stay true to my goals and intentions… encouraging me to commit to an action plan each week with success or “excuses.” Hearing my thoughts reflected in the coach’s words either with celebration for the success of the week’s movement forward or in the uncomfortable awareness of another unsubstantiated excuse kept me in check with my true level of commitment. I have learned to have more awareness of my potential for choices in how to budget my time.
-Janie Braid, Franchisee, mother of three

“Suzanne’s pro-active approach to business growth and development is a deeply motivating experience. We all have multifaceted daily challenges as business owners. Suzanne helps you to discover where we may have blockages, how to approach them, and how to eliminate them. “We all have the power to transform ourselves” is the mantra I use daily, with Suzanne’s assistance of course. I am grateful for the time Suzanne has spent with me personally and professionally.”
-Michael Ashburn, Owner, Ashburn Inspections>

Career

I initially hired Suzanne as my coach, for a one year contract, in an effort to refocus and rejuvenate a retail business that I had owned and managed for 23 years. It was an eye-opening experience, and I eagerly anticipated each weekly coaching session. The final result? I realized I had been disillusioned with retail for years. I completely changed directions, focused on those aspects of my work that I enjoyed the most, sold the retail business and consequently haven’t been this happy in years! I would never have opened my eyes to the opportunity that was there without Suzanne’s coaching guidance. She doesn’t tell you, “do this and do that!” Instead, she enhances your own ability to look at yourself objectively and then act on it!

Suzanne came across as a mentor at first and then as an encouraging friend as the sessions developed. She can be ‘direct’ if you backslide, and enthusiastic when you are attaining your goals. I have found that the year she served as my coach was one of the more important years of my career and life. And, I’ve never been able to thank her enough!
-Robert Webb, Photographer, Writer, Artist, Fly Fisherman

I’ve always been a positive person with a positive attitude. But my coach helps me maintain that positive thinking so that I choose to focus on what I can do rather than what I cannot do. Coaching helps me find ways to accomplish things that I think I may not be able to accomplish. Having a coach:

  • helps me to develop goals and deadlines for myself, and provides the accountability to work consistently, assessing and adjusting the process as I work towards completion.
  • helped me learn and practice speaking the truth directly to a person without fearing what they might think about me.
  • helped me learn that what others think and say about me is not what is important, that I am the one whose opinion matters most to me.

I often recommend coaching to people and more importantly I use the coaching tools I’ve learned on a regular basis to support people in my life.
-Donna Pennel, Customer Service (Insurance industry)

“After a successful business career and recent company reorganization, I believed that I had been given a gift of re-creating my life. It was time to do the work I was meant to do, but how to go about it? Well, the answer for me has been to co-create my future with a small business coach and not just any coach but Suzanne Ferguson! Suzanne’s ability to be in support of my dreams while inspiring me to be in action has added a deeper dimension to my accountability. Her wise and insightful coaching has been a catalyst in dissipating old and useless fears that often get in the way of meaningful, positive change. I am blessed to have her in my corner.”
-Barbara Swartz, Personal Finance Coach, Assertive Money Management

Suzanne is always upbeat and ready to get to work. She definitely thinks outside the box and has a variety of ideas to fit your situation. Her enthusiasm is contagious and is very easy to work with. She is a great asset in your business.
-Lisa Balenciaga, Send Out Cards

I have experienced Suzanne’s business coaching to be powerful. I began working with her a few months after starting my business. She helped me get clearer on my goals and strategies. Suzanne is practical and well grounded, also very intuitive – which for me is the perfect combination. By using the PSYCH-K® method she was able to identify and shift some of my old beliefs that were not supporting my new goals. In a short time I could see the effectiveness of this method in updating my thought processes, which put them in alignment with my core values. The best analogy I can use is that PSYCH-K seems somewhat similar to updating the software on our computers. We all know how important this is to having our computer systems function most effectively. It sounds simple, but how many of us do not take the time to clearly see or state what we intend and so do not move forward and attain our goals?

I wholeheartedly recommend Suzanne.
-Joyce Wilde, Organizer & Transition Coach

For my first coaching session with Suzanne, I lugged 5 different business ideas/products with me to consider with her. I was totally confused. I told her I wanted to figure out what would be a fulfilling business for me. Within 3 weeks, I was totally clear what I wanted to do. Now, after 4 months of working with her weekly, I have truly found my calling. What I especially appreciate about Suzanne is her ability to listen carefully and help me express my gifts in ways that are uniquely me. I am not becoming a cookie-cutter Suzanne! In one of her intake forms, Suzanne asks if there is anything I would like to change about the way she coaches me. My reply, emphatically: NOT ONE THING!
-Chris Yukevich, Single Parent Coach

Being one’s own boss comes with trials and tribulations and can be lonely at times. This coaching group created a safe place to be vulnerable about work issues with other business owners, as well as providing a structure in which to think about my business and my business’ growth.
-Nicholas Zographos, President, Nezen Creations

I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed being a part of your Coaching Group. I found many aspects of the program very valuable both personally and for my business. I knew you had a winner from the very first session when I reviewed the program overview and saw the importance you placed on the fundamentals. As the months went by I began to appreciate hearing new ideas for my business as well as ones that I have known for years, but wasn’t implementing on a consistent basis. I especially enjoyed interacting with the other group participants. Their feedback was directly responsible for a tremendous improvement in my presentation skills. Most of all, I appreciated the opportunity to make contributions to other people in the group. Like most small business owners, I enjoy helping other owners, and what better way to thank them for all the help they gave me then sharing my ideas with them. I highly recommend this coaching group. It has helped me. It can help you, too.
-Tom Reda, Owner, The Small Business Network (TSBN)

It doesn’t matter what size your business is or the length of time you’ve been in business, the Coaching Group meets you where you are and takes you to the next level. I can see doing it over and over again!
-Jaime Englert, CFO, The Tao Applied

I have had extensive one-on-one coaching, but found this group coaching to be remarkably smart, productive, and useful. I was able to make and implement various recommendations that were “directed” toward another group participant, because I found that they really applied well to me as well.
-Anne Fleming, President Women-Drivers

Relationships

Coaching has been one of the best decisions I have ever made. I was reluctant to invest the money in this relationship at first because of the responsibilities of having four young children to care for at home and only one family income. However this experience has been the best money I have ever invested. Personally, I am working toward my goals, I feel more centered, at peace and confident. My children have received probably the greatest benefit. Instead of reacting emotionally to challenges parenting offers, I am able to address them calmly and effectively. My children feel safer to come to me and express themselves and have given me very good feedback both verbally and non-verbally. I don’t have the time or space to express the full benefit that my family has received, but I firmly believe that everyone would benefit enormously from this investment.
-Christina Wood, Stay-at-home wife and mother of four

“I knew I wanted changes in my life and didn’t know where to begin. I was feeling dissatisfied both personally and professionally. I met Suzanne Ferguson through a business networking organization and naturally saw the opportunity to take those beginning steps. I can honestly say it’s been the best decision I ever made. Not only am I more satisfied with the direction in my life but, my family and friends are noticing a difference and benefiting from an easier relationship with me. There is light at the end of the tunnel and though it may be a long journey I am better prepared to enjoy the ride!”
-Pamela L. Kinkus, Founder, Cimaria By Design

I have been working with Suzanne for the past two months both on an individual basis and through our corporation. We have had fabulous results, secondary to our coaching. Suzanne has coached us through several roadblocks that have hindered our companies’ growth for years. We have also learned to use honest, open communication to create a work atmosphere that I look forward to being part of. I cannot wait to see what the future has in store for myself and our company.
- Greg Pyle, Company owner, Dental Surgeon

Financial Abundance

I first hired Suzanne for coaching after hearing her presentation about a coaching technique that helps people reach their goals easily. I was experiencing difficulties in my new career as a Financial Services Representative and I was beginning to doubt that I would be able to make it on straight commission. One session with Suzanne increased my confidence. That same evening, I closed my biggest deal ever, by myself, without the help of a mentor. After four coaching sessions I was sure I was in the right profession. Coaching increased my confidence, focus and consistency and has me solidly committed to my business AND a steadily growing income.
-Rick Smith, Financial Services Representative, MetLife

This 30-day program was very powerful for my team and I. I have been working with Suzanne privately for a while and I still decided to do the program in addition to our work. It really brought together everything I had been working on and really delivered results.

I achieved the next bonus level rank in the pay structure- this increased my pay dramatically. Giving me easily a 400% return on the investment I made in this program. Weekly classes started happening and my class attendance is steadily increasing and staying solid. My class attendance is larger than it has ever been in the past. Members of my team that were not very active are increasing their activity. Members of my team that participated in the 30-day program broke through brick walls that had been stopping their progress for months. For me personally, I became very clear with what I want to be in life. —This was surprising to me because it isn’t doTERRA® centered, it is larger than that and because of that it opened the doors for doTerra to be the vehicle to truly create abundance in my life.

You really get out of this program what you put into it. The beginning meeting and session were crucial and the catalyst for change in my life-but the fire would have quickly burnt out if it weren’t for my program buddy. Connecting with her on a weekly basis and hearing or reporting to her daily carried the momentum through to exciting results.

If you are ready to step out of your limiting patterns and into the life you want, this 30 day program is essential to making that happen.
