I'm Sue Hughes, a transformation coach for women in midlife.
I have ALWAYS had a passion for helping others achieve their full potential. Back in the day I fed that passion as an NCAA Division 1 tennis coach and then later I helped others achieve success in a small-business setting.
Everything was going great! That is … until my late 30s when I suddenly became SO physically drained and mentally anxious and overwhelmed. My hormones were all over the place and my digestive system was a mess. I NEVER expected to feel this way. I thought I did everything “right” yet I suddenly found myself in a downward spiral that was destroying me and everybody I loved.
I’m forever grateful that I had the wherewithal to take a step back and get totally real with myself. I knew I was a perfectionistic, driven, empath who had spent her life pushing to achieve while trying to be everything to everyone. I was so busy trying to be “enough” that I forgot how to just “be." It was time for a change or else I knew I’d be facing a future filled with health issues, and that wouldn’t be fair to my young son or my husband. They deserved better than to think I didn’t care enough about myself OR them to do what it took to feel my best.
So I made a decision. I tapped back into my coaching experience and my education in mental health and I scoured updated research looking for answers. It took me several years and investing tens of thousands of dollars in additional training on nutrition, holistic health, and mindset to piece together how a fit, happy, energetic athlete could, in a matter of years, turn into a drained, overwhelmed, spiraling pre-menopausal mess of a woman … and how to “fix” it.
I'm happy to say I fixed it for good. The hardest part was realizing that conventional wisdom was just plain wrong about the cause of my symptoms and what to do about them (which is why so many women of all ages are still suffering). I had to be courageous enough to have an open mind, use my intuition, and forge a new and fresh path for myself. Once I did that, it took me about 2 months to get my life back - energy and happiness included.
Fast forward to now: at 56 years of age, I still feel more like 26, both mentally and physically. I’ve had an easy menopause, I’m immersed in my passion, and I am a competitive athlete. I’m on no medications, no hormone replacement therapy, and I don’t do one-size-fits-all multi-level marketing diet or supplement plans. I have FREEDOM of mind and body and, as a result, I am able to tap into my true potential for the second half of life.
I ASSURE you that YOU can have what I have. It comes down to you deciding that enough's enough. Life isn't a dress rehearsal after all, and we're quickly approaching the final act.

"Feeling energized enough to begin exercising again. So good! I even lost 5 ½ pounds this week! How did that happen?!"
"My stress level and blood pressure were through the roof. Now I feel like a different person. Sue is a Godsend."
"I have more energy! This is the first weekend that I didn’t feel exhausted at the end of it, even though we had more activity this weekend than normal. I had forgotten what it felt like to have a social life without suffering!"
"One of my very best friends told me this week that I have been an inspiration to her and her own pursuit of better health. She said I am like a different person lately, not that the old me was bad but it’s like I’m just more excited about life and that’s been affecting, in a good way, how she’s been feeling. She’s not typically one to give compliments or share her feelings, so this meant a lot to me and motivated me to stay the course!"
"I feel so good! I am remembering entering this endeavor feeling exhausted most of the time and unsure what was happening to my body. I am feeling so much better. My energy is back, my drive is back, my life is back!"
"My dizzy spells are gone, my hair isn’t falling out anymore, and I no longer feel depleted when I help others! I'm thrilled!"
"My 'lackluster libido' has begun to show momentum in the luster direction! "I actually initiated intimacy with my husband for the first time in 8 yrs!! This is huge! My husband says he really has been seeing positive changes in me and our relationship!"
"My best friend asked me last week if I’ve been seeing a counselor! She said that I’m like a totally new person. I carry myself with more confidence and I stick up for myself more. She said I just seem more comfortable in my own skin now. This program has made a big difference in how I feel and obviously how I’m coming off to others.”
"I have lost almost 5 pounds since the first couple of weeks of the program. My migraines have dissipated and I have more energy; as a matter of fact, I get going in the morning and keep going until 9 o’clock at night doing something!"
"I have learned from my experience & realize I have 3 choices: 1. I can let it define me; 2. I can let it destroy me (this is where I was a year ago); 3. Or, I can let it strengthen me. I have chosen door #3! I feel the courage to move forward & no longer feel the fear that paralyzed me in the past."
"Everything about me has changed for the better! Now I’m actually excited to experience the second half of my life!"
A message from a client's husband: “THANK YOU!!! From the bottom of my heart for giving me my wife back!! Thank you for putting the sparkle back in my wife's eyes and the smile back on her face!”
"I’m so happy to say that I'm sleeping like a log. I was waking up numerous times a night (starting at 3 AM) and would feel exhausted in the morning. I have hope!"
"I’ve made so many changes and noticed so many positive differences in my energy and my symptoms over the past couple of months in the program that I am excited to say I’m joining the graduates’ group!"
