Women are finding themselves at various points of transition, causing them to question themselves and what they once knew of the world around them. In the Transition mini-series, you will hear women discuss where they are now versus 10 years ago, what happened when the dream became old, and the resistance, triggers, acceptance, that led to where they are now. We hope you see that you are not alone, and glean insight to help you land on the other side better and more assured, no matter what it feels like now.
Get to know these women via their brief bios below. Then, tune in via Substack.
We look forward to your feedback.

PR Professional, Author
Susan Nefzger is the author of two books: “A Practical Guide to Awareness” and “Putting Awareness into Practice”. A compilation of stories from women around the world is her current work in progress. And her fourth book, “A Practical Guide to Living Fearlessly” will be published Spring 2021.
Exploring the concept of self-awareness in the early 80s, eventually led Susan on a personal self-actualization quest, travelling the world seeking answers. It would be at a writing retreat in Glastonbury that she would write the book that would change her life in 72 hours – from 30-year public relations professional, wife and mother, to a self-awareness author and public speaker.
