Ep 148 Let It Be Easy with Susie Moore

Nov 02, 2021
Tina Tower Her Empire Builder Podcast

Episode 148 of the Her Empire Builder podcast, I have a very special guest for you! My friend, author and online course creator extraordinaire Susie Moore.

Susie is a former Silicon Valley Sales Director turned Life Coach and Advice Columnist. Her work has been featured on the Today show, Oprah, Business Insider, CNN, Forbes, Time Inc, Marie Claire and she’s the resident Life Coach Columnist for Greatist (yeah, all the cool things!) .

In our interview today, I ask Susie about why so many of us are addicted to stress, why we want to make everything hard and why we're comfortable in doing that. We also chat about what Susie's journey has been like with going from a stressful life to actually finding ease and joy, whilst still running a successful multi-million dollar online course business. ⁠

Susie says as humans, we are so wired to think that we are 'busy' all the time, and that life is hard. When in fact, what we need to do, is train our brain to start using different language and different decision making processes. Instead of finding something hard, we need to ask ourselves the question "is this really necessary?" and "Why does it have to be hard, let it be easy". It sounds like common sense, but common sense is often uncommon in a lot of situations! We need to focus on what makes us happy, and what serves us rather than adding things to our plate that we think we need to do. It is similar to what we spoke about in the podcast episode with Leonie Dawson - and something that I have been focusing on for the last few months.  If something isn't increasing my business revenue, or helping me to grow the business, or bringing me joy - I am simply getting rid of it! There is no point in wasting our time 'being busy' with work that isn't actually changing anything. When you start saying no to more things that don't serve you, bigger opportunities will present themselves to you that will make you start saying YES, and this is FUN. It can seem scary to say no to the very thing that has been growing your business and got you to the level you are at today, but you simply will not move forward or scale up to the next level if you don't. 

Susie’s new book, Let It Be Easy is out on 9th November, and is all about how we can get more ease and joy into our lives - check out the show notes to pre-order!⁠
