Susan Hyatt is a Master Certified Life Coach whose fresh approach to personal development has won her tens of thousands of fans on Facebook, praise from icons like Dr. Martha Beck, and a sold-out coaching calendar—with many programs selling out in six hours or less.
Her motto? “Life is precious. Go make it delicious.”
Susan has been featured in Cosmopolitan, Woman’s World, Seventeen, and O: The Oprah Magazine, and has appeared on stage in front of live audiences from Seattle to Aruba.
Her international retreats—to locations like Thailand, Italy, France, Ireland, and Spain—combine personal growth, professional development, arts, food, adventure, and culture. So much more than just a “tourism trip,” each retreat provides a chance to reconnect with your life purpose, dive into strategic career and business planning, and expand your vision of what’s possible for your life.
In this episode, Susan shares some wonderful personal stories about how she became a coach, the evolution of her body image and her relationship with food, and how she has learned to set boundaries in her life and work. She talks about the difference between being nice and being kind, she describes the dark side of gratitude, and we dig into why it's so important to let yourself want what you want. We also talk a lot about the value of questioning your beliefs and the stories you tell yourself about how you "should" act, and she gives practical tips for making change. I loved getting to know Susan, and I walked away from this conversation with a feeling of freedom about making non-mainstream or non-traditional choices, and about choosing my own path. I hope the same is true for you!
