A Note from Susie

Hello Susie,

What a month August was leading up to my book launch! Since then, it’s been somewhat manic too; first we had all the preparation for the launch and then the day of the launch. Over the first weekend, it went to best seller status, and then on the Monday, it reached International #1 Best Seller! 

I was walking around in a circle of bewilderment. Whilst I was writing it, it was personal to me, and now suddenly everyone out there had the opportunity of owning a copy – such a weird feeling.

If you recall, I was shy of putting it out there and my publisher was threatening all sorts - from a forceps delivery to finally the OR and a C-section.

I really was hesitant about letting it go, but now it’s done and the second it was out of my control I did start to relax.

Things took on a momentum of their own culminating in my publisher sending me screen shots from around the world - Australia, US, Canada, New Zealand, and Europe - showing me how it was progressing up the charts to (finally) the #1 slot. Thank you so much to those of you who have supported me in this endeavour. The feedback from you has been wonderful and extremely gratifying.

However, that was then and this is now… I have the follow-up book to write now, so I hope that won’t be as difficult to part with in the final stages! It’s called Colour Your Legacy, The Coaches Handbook, and I think that is axiomatic.

This month, my featured article is the third in the Out of Bounds series. Here we look at Chapter Three: Developing Healthy Boundaries.

And, The SusieZone features something a little different this month - a fun quiz!

I always endeavor to give you value, and that you consider this an online magazine – your personal ezine - which is equal to one of your favourite monthly “glossies” that you purchase from your local newsagent or newsstand, which is why I always try to make it as interesting and different for you to be able to dip in and out of.

Please feel free to introduce your friends to meet me here in our special shared space. Simply copy this URL - - and paste it into an email to your friend(s) and invite them to join us!

As we stride into Autumn, I would like to remind you that you have the opportunity of a free 30-minute consultation with me to discuss where you are in your business and personal life, what problems you may be facing, and discover how I may help you. Schedule your appointment with me here.

My call to action - aside from scheduling a free session with me - is (for those of you who have yet to buy or are still wondering about my book) to go over to Amazon and have a look there. Click here for or click here for

Once again, let me know your thoughts as I always enjoy hearing from you, and, for now, sit back - favourite hot (or cold) drink in hand - and settle down for a comfortable chat with a friend.

Loving hugs,

Out of Bounds: How to Set Healthy Boundaries - Chapter 3, Developing Healthy Boundaries

by Susie Briscoe

Setting healthy boundaries in your life can often be fraught with difficulties because you’re dealing with so many different personalities – those of your co-workers, family members, spouses, and friends.

All of these people have different expectations of you and some may cross healthy boundaries.

If you haven’t set certain boundaries for yourself, stress, bad feelings, breakup of a relationship, and anger may occur when you change.

It’s important that you know how to set boundaries for yourself and which are most important to you, but it’s also important to know how to deal with the reactions of others to the boundaries you’ve set.

You have rights that need to be respected – to be able to say “No” when you want to and to expect courtesy from others. It’s your right to let the phone go to voicemail, ignore email for awhile, or not answer a question if you don’t want to.

What Others Are Saying

"Before working with Susie, I had too many things going on and didn't know where to start with an idea I wanted to execute. I had some time available each day that I could have used, but wasn't moving my idea forward, which left me feeling lazy, frustrated, and unmotivated.

I saw a little image on Facebook with 2 trees - one tree had the '6 Figure Path' on top and the other had 'The Struggle Path' on top. Under the Struggle Path was 'always looking for free resources' and under the 6 Figure Path there was 'invest in coaching'.

This was a true 'a-ha' moment for me. If I wanted to get out of the struggle to find time to work on my idea, I needed to invest in a coach. Once I started working with Susie, I got so many things done. Making sure I did my 'homework' before the next coaching session, I always managed to find time to work on my idea and I'm 100% sure that I would not have come so far without coaching. When I came to Susie I kind of knew what I wanted to do, but I was not sure how I would do it and who was my customer.  I now know who my customer is, what they are struggling with and I have a plan how to solve it.

I've drafted a website for my new business. I've drafted two courses; one small and one signature course. I've made a skeleton for my first book that will be directly related to the courses. I've been writing almost daily for the past 3 months, many of the things I'm writing will go in the book, others will be a newsletter and some will be just for me.

My vision for the next few months is planned out and clear. This will keep me focused and on track."
