“You can’t measure up to perfect; don’t be afraid to be yourself.”

It’s not everyday that I meet an amazing person in my space and they tell me that I remind me of their mom. But that’s exactly what happened when I met John at a book event. After I learned that his mom was Susan Wheeler, I was impressed by both of them and excited to share their stories with you.

Susan is an author, speaker, and mindset coach who believes in family first. She is a runner who has run more than 25 marathons, half-marathons, and ultra-marathons, starting at age 40. Her role is to help her clients master their mindset so they can live the life they want.

John is an author, business strategy and mindset coach, and network marketer. With over 8 years of personal development training and certification through Growth-U as a mindset coach, he helps people rebuild their mindsets to be in alignment with the best version of themselves.

In this episode, Susan and John share both of their amazing stories of perseverance, success, entrepreneurship, and making the best of your life.

Here’s what you will learn:⁣
