Ep28 - An ethical and well-being wakeup; prioritising what truly matters w/ Susi Martin (Kaeufer)
March 30, 2023
In today's episode, Shannon chats with fellow coach Susi Martin (nee Kaeufer) about navigating both a personal and business evolution and waking up to a realisation that the coaching industry wasn't all it made itself to be. Susi shares her awakening to some of the not so ethical practices in the business and coaching space and how she recognised the need to do things differently for her own well-being, particularly from a mental health perspective. Susi and Shannon chat through personal examples of business and coaching practices that are in need of change. This vibrant conversation will inspire you to reflect on what's really important and possibly even motivate you to make some changes to prioritise things in your business and life.
