Follow Your Dreams
You’re an entrepreneur, a healer, a creative. You’re a coach. You have a big heart and lots of good ideas. You’re pretty sure you’re doing your life’s work but sometimes you have trouble organizing your ideas and ‘orchestrating’ your plans.
And sometimes, you have trouble seeing your gifts.
If only you had just a little more marketing savvy. Or a crisper way to articulate what you do.
We just might be the perfect fit if:
You’d like to get clear on how to ‘do what you love’ and make enough money to support yourself doing it
You lots of good ideas but you haven’t yet found a way to stand out in the crowd
You’re excited about your entrepreneurial path but knowing where to put your energy and which projects to initiate can be a little overwhelming
You have a family, a dog, and a husband and you want them to remember what you look like when you’re not in front of the computer cranking out copy and obsessing over words
You’re ready for a fresh perspective and maybe even a little nudge
I’m Sue Ann Gleason. For thirty years I taught young children and mentored blossoming teachers. I had a knack for discovering jewels and illuminating gifts. I specialized in diamonds in the rough.
Then, I found a new passion and started a whole new career as a culinary nutritionist and nourishment guide. How lucky is that? How many people find their calling, twice?
Pretty soon, fellow health counselors and coaches started noticing things about my work—like killer copy, clever presentations, and a fabulous fan base.
But mostly, they saw how much fun I was having with my business and that you really can make a living doing what you love.
You, my dear friend, don’t have to go it alone. I can help you:
• refine your website copy so that it reflects YOUR voice
• illuminate your brand
• build an online presence
• rock your facebook page
• decide which social media platform best serves your business and how to authentically grow a fan base
• craft a signature talk or program from the work that you do in the world
• fall in love with your business
Here’s how I work
I am a creative catalyst. I will show you ways to craft your business model so that you stand out in a crowd. We all have our own special way to be of service in the world, but we don’t always know how to articulate what it is that makes us unique.
When I first heard the word branding, I didn’t like it very much. It brought up all kinds of scary, searing images in my head. I thought, “I’m not a cow. I don’t need a brand.” But now I understand how to wrap all of my services in the same soft blanket. To me, it’s more than the colors you choose for your website and the design you create for your logo. It’s how you show up in the world and what you stand for. I can help you blossom into your brand.
I know how to build an online business and, in today’s world, that gives me a much wider reach. I LOVE delivering teleclasses and growing online communities. I can help you create a teleclass series and navigate all the little details in an online program.
I love to entertain an audience. And I know the difference between ‘talk’ and ‘signature talk.’ I specialize in drawing out your strengths and helping you craft the ‘one’ talk that beautifully illuminates your work, so that you don’t need to create a whole new presentation each time you’re called upon to speak to a group.
There are a lot of social media marketing ‘experts’ out there offering to help you increase the number of followers on your Facebook page. I show you how to build relationship and choose the social media platform that best supports your business.
Most important: I am right there in the trenches with you. I can hold your hand when the waters get a little turbulent and assure you that you are on the right path, at the right time. And I can even show you how to ride some of those juicy waves.
We’ll get along famously if you:
• are intellectually curious
• love to laugh
• enjoy looking at your business through another set of creative eyes
• believe that your career can be as nourishing and delicious as chocolate
Sound like a good fit?
You can get to know me a little better by setting up a free, 30-minute, no-pressure call on the phone. I can work with you from just about anywhere in the world.

With amazing grace, she uncovered a sparkly diamond that was right there in front of me the whole time, so close I couldn’t even see it.
Sue Ann isn’t kidding when she says she specializes in “diamonds in the rough.” For years I’d been searching and searching for my “thing,” something I could package and sell to the world in the form of an information product. Seriously. I had just about given up and was about to start a business selling physical products…not my ideal business model. Then, Sue Ann dropped a tiny but potent spark in my inbox. A suggestion for an online course. The spark quickly grew into a fire after several emails back and forth between the two of us. With amazing grace, she uncovered a sparkly diamond that was right there in front of me the whole time, so close I couldn’t even see it. “The Tech Husband.” Ideas and insights flew from her mind like fireworks. Her support and inspiration have been such a gift as I embark on this journey, packaging up knowledge and years of technological experience that will help so many people in their entrepreneurial paths. Thank you, Sue Ann.

After 30+ years of teaching Mindful Eating/Mindful Living, I can now clearly see what I do and what attracts people to my work.
I just completed my fabulous, fun, 4-month journey with Sue Ann Gleason, the doyenne of authentic, heart-centered marketing. In her I found coach, collaborator, cheerleader and friend. I had a clear vision of the process and person I was looking for and I searched for some time before happily connecting with Sue Ann—and I can tell you this—there is no one doing this work, there is no one providing this creative, inspiring, growth-producing (in every way) service. Sue Ann rocks.
In four months, I more than quadrupled my Facebook following and took my engagement rate to a whole new level. The format of my newsletter has a completely different look and feel. It’s now beautiful, playful and content-rich. I’m sending it out twice each month and steadily building my list.
I’ve developed two new packages and, more important, I am already attracting clients for them. I’m learning about both the structure and the systems necessary to build an online business. I now have a marketing plan and the confidence to take more and more of my business online. And, most importantly, Sue Ann helped me to define and clarify my Evolved Eating brand. As I defined it, I felt more and more excited—oh, yeah—this fun, playful, effective process—that’s what I do!
My confidence and passion soared. After 30+ years of teaching Mindful Eating/Mindful Living, I can now clearly see what I do and what attracts people to my work. I’ve fallen in love with my brand all over again.
Oh, and I’m also eating a lot more chocolate.

From the moment I came in contact with her, Sue Ann picked up on my strengths and recognized exactly where I needed support.
How would I describe Sue Ann Gleason, marketing strategist extraordinaire? Smart, witty, tenacious, and one of the most insightful and generous spirits I have ever met. From the moment I came in contact with her, Sue Ann picked up on my strengths and recognized exactly where I needed support.
Sue Ann has an innate ability to read people and then inspire them to be their best. I initially approached Sue Ann with huge deadlines looming and an important presentation on my calendar. I told Sue Ann that I wanted to feel like a million bucks after the talk. With patience and detailed direction, she helped me focus and prepare for the event.

What came out of our work together was not only a signature talk, but also crystal clarity around my core message and the framework for my book.
Working with Sue Ann exceeded all my expectations, and I had high ones! As a trained health coach, I was taught to give cookie cutter-type talks on broad topics. As my business grew, I wanted (needed) to elevate my talks in ways that not only brought more of my own story to the audience but also communicated my message and set me apart. Specifically, I needed to craft a signature talk that encapsulated my unique voice, story and message. This is when I sought out Sue Ann’s expertise and support.
Sue Ann guided me through a process of self-reflection, which organized the most critical parts of my journey and tied them together with the core teaching points I wanted to communicate. She taught me the art of crafting a talk by using the power of story and tethering it to my core message. What came out of our work together was not only a signature talk, but also crystal clarity around my core message and the framework for my book.
Sue Ann is a gifted mentor and so very intuitive. She sees beneath the surface and listens between the lines for the golden thread in your story and shows you how to craft a powerful talk and message, which illuminates who you are and the gifts you have to share with the world.

I feel enriched (as does my business!) for our time together.
I wanted to say thank you for all of the beautiful conversations we have in our Brambles Intensive. I think I get as much from the ‘sidebars’ and “tangents” as I do from our focus work. I love hearing how your work is organic and that it changes as you change. Beautiful and inspiring.
Each session we have is so productive. I always feel as though I am speaking to a very knowledgeable and wise mentor, someone who has ‘been there, done that’ in the exceptional, incredibly authentic way that you do.
Just having someone to talk to who has the same views on building relationships, not ‘lists’ does a world of good for my entrepreneurial soul. You keep me balanced and on track doing all that needs to be done when we have a gift we want to share with the world.
I feel enriched (as does my business!) for our time together.

There is no one else I would trust to help me find the “heart and soul” of my business.
I am in the process of finishing up a Masters of Nutrition and launching the website you helped me conceive. I feel like I am having a fourth child and you are my labor and delivery coach!
I had been thinking about starting my own nutrition counseling practice for almost five years, but the timing was never quite right. I’m so glad I waited! Now I have the benefit of YOUR hard-earned experience and expertise. There is no one else I would trust to help me find the “heart and soul” of my business.
You helped me understand what I needed to do to get started and supported me every step of the way. I now have a very practical template for building my practice so that I can reach more people as I continue to grow my business. Your honest feedback and quiet encouragement left me feeling so very empowered. Thank you so much!

Each time you raise the bar ten levels, I feel compelled to reach for ten books on my nightstand just to catch up.
Where do I begin? Words don’t convey appropriate compliments and praise for the deep and thoughtful work you put into your clients. You are to be commended for the way in which you use the tools you’ve been given and then take them to a whole new level. Suffice it to say, you’re living up to the name, brand, and purpose of your business. Congratulations!
And, you scare me, because each time you raise the bar ten levels, I feel compelled to reach for ten books on my nightstand just to catch up. Your ‘How to Give a Kickass Presentation,’ teleclass taught me the basic principles for creating an informative and well-researched presentation tailored to my audiences’ needs. Your practical suggestions and warm demeanor made learning both easy and enjoyable. You really helped me step through my hesitations and fears. I’m actually looking forward to my next presentation.
You are a true inspiration, Sue Ann, and I have no doubt everyone will be knocking at your door to become one of your clients, or simply, to know you.
A million thanks for sharing your wisdom.

I have my confidence back and, best of all, I am thrilled to be a counselor again.
Until Sue Ann came into my life, I was unfocused, overwhelmed and out-of-sync with rebranding my Nutrition and Health Consulting business. I was simply spinning my wheels—trying every new idea or on-line program that popped up and getting nowhere, fast. Every morning I’d wake up determined to make something work and every evening go to bed feeling defeated because nothing had worked that day and I’d spent more money and too much time again.
I deeply admired Sue Ann as a fellow classmate at the Institute for the Psychology of Eating. The instant I realized she mentored coaches, I engaged her services. What a huge blessing that was for me. I’d spent many class hours listening to her wisdom, insights and humor, admiring her warmth, her groundedness and her ability to connect the dots. Plus, I knew her business was thriving! I wanted Sue Ann to coach me; I wanted what she had.
Working with Sue Ann was amazing. I am back on track; my goals are clear and focused. I have my confidence back and, best of all, I am thrilled to be a counselor again. My days are brimming with purpose, energy and a deep inner calm. And Sue Ann is always there for me: an email away for the small stuff plus our individual sessions where I am heard, taught, guided and loved. When I am with Sue Ann I feel like I am in the womb again—where I am being so generously and carefully nourished.
Sue Ann has made me, my business, and my life shine and I am grateful beyond words for her beautiful, knowing and caring spirit. The Universe knows what to bring and so it does.
