For Susan Epstein, making it is about being fearless, seizing opportunities and inspiring others. Our unique gifts and interests will make every entrepreneurial path individually inspired, but success is never achieved alone. Grab a coach and listen in!
Welcome to Making It! This weekly show explores the lives and stories of entrepreneurs as they share their unique perspectives on their success and the path to making it.  

     Susan Epstein is the founder of Highly Profitable Practice, a company that works with coaches, therapists and healers to fill their practices and leverage their time. Susan always knew she wanted to help and inspire others. Her journey to business ownership has taken her from social worker to author, speaker and inspirational leader. At every pivot and pause along the way, she looked to others for inspiration and guidance to help light her path.

     In this episode, Susan masterfully frames the reciprocal nature of inspiration and guidance. As inspiration calls us to action, and we fearlessly answer the call, we move in ways that inspire others. The whole incredible cycle rolls forward, gaining momentum and creating success for more people along the way. 

“There’s no shame in asking for help; the only shame is sitting in your own despair.”

“I didn't try to do this all by myself. I always have a coach in my life.”

– Susan Epstein
