"With Susan's passion for life and passion for people, it's no surprise her business is helping people hatch their own passions to create viable revenue streams. Within a half hour, Susan had pulled a business idea and name out of me. By the end of the session I was ready to plan a website, devise a marketing plan - open the hatch! Henry David Thoreau once said "If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them." Susan has both the imagination to see all the possibilities on the horizon, as well as the knowledge to put together a realistic plan to bring them to fruition -- making the impossibles - probables."
