Once used to bolster troubled staffers, coaching now is part of the standard development training for elite executives and talented up-and-comers.

I was referred to Susan by my life coach Jina Daigle. I had left my corporate COO job at a hospital and was thinking about starting my own business. My roadblocks were trying to figure out what type of business to start and really determining what my passion was.
Susan is an absolutely outstanding coach. She helped me create a One-page Business Plan, and worked with me efficiently and effectively to make that business plan meet my expectations, as well as meet my goals. I now have an outstanding business plan that will guide me through and be a good "North Star" for making my business work and making my business thrive.
In the world of business, Susan is a symphony!
I, for one, would give up my piano for a fraction of the wisdom, knowledge, and business sense that Susan possesses. There did not seem to be any topic in business with which she was not comfortable. I looked forward to every single coaching session because I knew that at the conclusion I would be excited and energized to tackle the next step.
I was pleased and impressed with our journey through the Niche Clarity Program and afterward recognized that it would be foolish to start my business venture without her professional help.
But with Susan, you don't just get a business coach, but a life coach as well, and she does this with a gentle unobtrusive manner. Dr. Reid has such keen intuition and so obvious a connection with her own Inner Samurai that others can benefit from just spending some time with her; a true gift. Susan has earned my highest praise and recommendation!
I had read many life and business coaching books before working with Susan Reid and thought I knew what was needed to startup a business. However, after several years of trying to get clear about my business, I was no closer to having a business plan that grabbed me than before.
Dr. Susan Reid has been a blessing to both me and my husband. She helped us to tap into our Inner Samurai to find our passion in business and work.
I had amazing shifts that happened in a short period of time. Susan was focused, perceptive, and absolutely bang on with helping me to see my blocks. I now have tools to take me forward with confidence, and there is no doubt in my mind that I will be making a 6-figure income by the end of this year.
I began my sessions with Susan with great anticipation and with a knowing that she would help me identify my "Inner Samurai."
I cannot tell you how much Susan helped me in my journey. Her intuitive knowing and ability to connect with me and my soul was uncanny. It seemed as though each session was right on track with what I was feeling and trying to discover. Susan saw my ups and downs in my journey and all the while she managed my strengths and weaknesses and kept me on track.
Every woman has a silent, but, bold inner knowing. Susan knows you possess it. Her gift is to pass that "knowing" onto you. She has helped me uncover that my true journey is to help people. With that in focus, I am now able to concentrate my efforts on the right path, and develop my business.
Susan's coaching has definitely helped me to create new business ideas and ways to implement them. She helped me clarify what type of business really matched my interests. I have gained the confidence to develop these ideas and create my own business using the methods Susan presented. I thoroughly enjoy working with Susan.

I had never used a coach prior to Susan and I'll admit, I was skeptical. I interviewed two other coaches before making my selection. I chose Susan because she specialized in what I was looking for: identifying my Marketing Niche. Others wanted to start at the beginning with "Why are you in business?" or even "Where is your energy?" I needed help with my niche and Susan got right down to the task at hand.
Being led to Susan's expansive gifts and coaching was no accident. I thank the Universe for Susan's powerful intuition and support. Having admired Susan's gifts as she facilitated a prosperity coaching call, I was instantly attracted to her Niche Clarity workshop. Susan's openhearted and focused skills gave me clarity, connection, and enormous excitement about the truth of my own path. Now I continue to be thrilled and inspired by all the tools she is using herself and offering to each of us to create the lives we love through our work and creativity.
You have helped me so much in gaining my confidence

Susan is very intuitive and we worked well together. The guided imagery we did together was quick, to the point, and was a great confirmation for me of many things.
I was first introduced to Susan through a treasured client, and all I can say is "Wow"! Although I had operated my business for many years on a very casual basis, it was time to pull it all together and make it real. With Susan's assistance, I've finally figured out my purple cow, my perfect client, the services I enjoy and want to offer, and how I can best assist my clients through my personal experiences.
I came to Susan to start a business. We both knew it was just a business, not the business. She recommended the Niche Clarity Program to get clear before starting up. Working with Susan allowed me to reveal and develop my career passion, a dream I had locked away in favor of more practical employment. Now I am starting up a business I love, not just like.
Susan is a real inspiration. She is very intuitive and just delightful. Working with her is absolutely a joyful experience. Our coaching sessions were great and I saw results in my business "visions" immediately. Time spent with Susan was absolutely beyond my expectation.
In the beginning, we had many ideas about what we could do - which was just about anything. The difficulty was deciding which thing to do. We needed someone who could be a sounding board; someone who understood the interconnectedness of professionalism, personality, and spirituality; someone to help us sort through the passing interests, and get to the heart of a business that reflected our passions. Susan is that someone.
Susan helped me get clear about my business and find the language to best describe my passion. Susan would talk about building business from inside out - I think she calls it Heart Centered. What better place for a women or really anyone to come to each day than our own heart.
Susan thank you for helping me find my way to my Heart so that I can be open to all that is possible!
I was referred to Susan by a dear friend to develop a real estate career I had fallen into. During our coaching together, I discovered that my true passion did not particularly lie in selling homes, but in decorating them and in the relationships I could develop through them.
Because of Susan's amazing intuitive sense and ability to understand beyond surface "head noise." One Pretty House Interiors, a redesign and real estate staging company, was borne. I am so excited for what 2008 will bring, as Susan has helped me position myself for a fabulous year! I am grateful for her continued support and encourage you to make the investment in yourself and your future.
During six months in 2011, I helped Diana register her business entity, get her website setup, create a financial plan, and coordinate her email campaign. Also, together we explored and forged inroads with The Spain - U.S. Chamber of Commerce for Diana to sell her products in the U.S.
As a result of working with Susan, I have started to re-format my life into a "Two Priority One Month" strategy, which I LOVE! That has made such an impact on my performance with my small business: to focus on the most important thing for the month, and just get it done. When Susan told me about this approach, it opened up great energy in my life to accomplishing things I had been "under-prioritizing."
The great thing about working with Susan is that I am continually reminded to check in with my spirit and passion regarding decisions about my business. And that these parts of me are interconnected, and so my approach to my business should reflect that.
The most unexpected thing that happened as a result of working with Susan is that I opened up my life to having a child! I had been struggling for a couple years with the vision of being a strong career-focused woman and how children would fit into that picture... and yet at the same time, desiring to have children in my life. I worked with Susan to broaden the vision of my life to the great possibilities, and realized that a successful business does not exclude the opportunity to have children. I now pregnant with my first child, and still pursuing my business dreams.
I would strongly recommend working with Susan to my friends and colleagues, especially those entrepreneurs who have a strong spiritual center and have not been able to find a home for their entire selves in the traditional language of business.
The Niche Clarity Program and working with Susan was an eye-opening experience for me. Within a short period, I was able to see new, unexpected, and creative ways to work with my new small business idea.
Working with Susan is great. Through the Niche Clarity Program, Susan helped me explore new and more creative income possibilities. I highly recommend both the Niche Clarity Program and Susan if you are considering a new business or expanded business direction.
Susan is just amazing. She helps me step-by-step, encouraging me and inspiring me to really dig inside myself and find my voice and my vision and where I want my business to go, so that my business is really becoming about me and finding my niche in the world. It's just been an incredible experience.

Working with Susan on my One-Page Business Plan was a fabulous experience. Although I had worked on the One-Page Business Plan on my own in the past and had always gotten a little clarity, mostly about just my next step, my work with Susan increased my clarity ten-fold. I now not only have a clear, concise vision of my business, I also have a focused, clearly defined action plan that's laid out quarter by quarter for the next year. And what's great is I left for vacation right after I finished my plan with Susan, and I came back refreshed, revitalized, and very focused on exactly where I needed to put my energy to get the immediate results that I needed.
Susan, I want to thank you immensely for your support, your clarifying questions, and your rich conversations that enable me to distill my new project, GreenCareerCentral.com, into a powerful One-Page Business Plan.
Carol McClelland, PhD
This has been an incredible and insightful journey that has really given roots to our vision and our dream. Susan's energy, genuine enthusiasm for us and our dream has really added a depth and clarity to who we are as a business.
Writing a Business Plan always seemed a daunting prospect to me and I wasn't looking forward to writing one at all. On top of that, I only had one month to finish it.
I was amazed at the speed in which I reached clarity on what would be my niche and focus in my coaching and retreat business. What I assumed might take months for research and discussion took just 3 sessions, thanks to Susan's excellent coaching skills and questioning techniques
Hiring a coach is a new experience for me. I've loved not having to think about the 'next step' while clarifying my dream of an online business.
Susan worked with me on my company's focus, my 'perfect client', and benefits to my clients. She has helped me put together a message that has been used in my brochure and web site. I can say with confidence that these projects' outcomes were much higher quality because of her involvement! I also worked with Susan to define my long term strategy, which came together amazingly fast through the Niche Clarity Program. Her intuition really helped the guided self-exploration she did with me.
I had been looking for this business for a long time -years- I am not kidding - years. Every six months or so I was starting a different business.
Recently, I decided that I needed to look at all these business ideas at one time and find a business coach to help minimize my mistakes in starting up a business. That is when I happened across Susan's website and the Niche Clarity Workshop and immediately knew that working with Susan was what I needed to do.
Working with Susan has been phenomenal. I must say I am feeling pretty comfortable and pleased with the business idea we created. I feel like I have corralled a million ideas and synthesized them into a perfect fit for me. I feel more focused and have a much clearer picture of what a business for me looks like.
It's been an absolute pleasure to work with Susan and Alkamae business coaching services. In only three months, she helped us create our vision, mission statements, and niche market, and we had great fun in the process.
When I first started working with Susan, I wasn't making the progress I wanted to towards relaunching my business - I felt like I was getting in my own way and I wanted to fix that. Susan helped me keep my focus in the right place so I could make progress towards my goals.
After trying around with all the different business coaches out there; I wish that I had gone with Dr. Reid originally.
I decided to work with a coach because my business was stagnant. I wasn't sure if I wanted to continue doing what I was doing, start another business, or just become more creative in what I was doing.
The One-Page Business plan made sense (energetically and practically), flowed from one thing to the next in a logical manner, and didn't take long to complete.
This coaching experience has certainly gone beyond business coaching and yet has really gotten to the heart of my business. You have such a depth of understanding and perspective that has been so helpful to me.
A mantra that I try to apply in my business is that . . . people don't really care how much you know until they know how much you care. I have felt that you care and that this coaching has been more than just a way to earn a living.
I think what we all want is to make a difference in the lives of other people and in the world. You have made a difference in my life and that has created a ripple effect in the lives of so many other people that cannot be quantified.
I have thoroughly enjoyed working with Susan! The main thing is that - she gets it. Every week is a growth spurt because she hears me and can direct me. I have reached a record high in my business while coaching with Susan.
I'm so grateful that we connected to launch my e-business since you are an excellent facilitator for attraction marketing. With infinite patience, high spirits and lots of cocreative writing, you guided me to transform my idea into a peerless brand. Your process for helping me to develop my niche market- using me and my desires as the point of attraction - has been not only phenomenal for drawing the perfect customers to me, but also a tremendous self-growth experience yielding incredible results both personally and professionally. Your unique approach and endless enthusiasm inspire me to succeed. Thank you for all you do!
It's been so helpful having Susan as my prosperity coach. She's very intuitive and always helps me to see things in a new way. Best of all, I come away from every session with practical tools I can use to help me progress along my path.
