Today I sat down with Susan Hobson. Susan is a high performance coach working with elite business leaders, entrepreneurs and athletes. As you will soon hear, she has a remarkable ability to tap into the brain and leverage it to our advantage. This interview is full of actionable strategies to help you recognize patterns that are no longer serving your mission, and immediate steps to help you achieve your true potential. One cool thing about Susan is that no one can escape her incredible ability to perceive their state. If you are ready to go to the next level, she’ll call you on it and take you there. Conversely, if you’ve been hiding in your own head and making things up as to why you can’t move forward, she’s going to find that for you as well. This is an incredibly applicable interview, you are absolutely going to love it.
