What do you constantly crave more of every day? Whether it’s more confidence, more clarity, more CONNECTION, more self-love, more influence, or more opportunities… today’s guest lives by the philosophy: If you crave it, then you can create it.

She’s the creator of the Bare Process, the Bare Deck, the Bare Podcast, an online community called Bare Daily aaaand a brand new book named… you guessed it: BARE.

Not only has she worked with thousands of women, but she also has been featured in Cosmopolitan, Woman’s World, Seventeen, and O: The Oprah Magazine, and was a Finalist for the Athena Award, honoring her work in the field of women’s empowerment. You’re going to LOVE Susan’s energy and confidence-boosting insights about lifestyle upgrades, choosing and PRACTICING self-love, ditching dieting, owning your power, and how you can have MULTIPLE cakes, and eat them too!
