If you like what you hear I hope you’ll share the show with others and I hope you’ll decide to become a fan of the show on my site at Winnie When you do you’ll get episodes delivered right to your inbox along with information, tips, and resources to help you – the introverted, mission-driven entrepreneur — consistently move forward to reach your biggest goals.


As Introverts one of the things we have to check in with ourselves about is whether the issue we’re wrestling with or that seems to be keeping us from taking action is truly part of being an introvert or is it connected to a deeper issue we wrestle with.

And often, if you find yourself resisting something, avoiding taking action, there’s probably a fear that’s holding you back.

I can tell you from experience that until you fully face that fear it’s unlikely you’ll be able to fully move forward with the courage, confidence, and clarity you need.

That’s the conclusion I came to and I thought you probably needed to as well.

That’s why I wanted to have today’s guest on the show.

To say Suzie Gruber is a personal development coach is a simplification of her skills I think but that’s technically her title. She uses her skills and training to help professionals uncover any survival strategies that we carry from childhood that we may still be unknowingly using today. She’ll support you in developing the ability to detach from the emotions connected to an issue, and support you to examine it as you develop new strategies to deal with it.

Her clients go on to be more productive, achieve their business and professional goals, and do it all with a greater sense of aliveness and ease so their work and their life is more satisfying.

Keep in mind that we’re not giving you medical advice. Suzie is not a licensed therapist or a doctor of any sort and neither am I. This episode like all of the episodes of The Courageous Entrepreneur Show is designed to inform, educate, and entertain you. If this brings up any issues or feelings for you please consider reaching out to a professional for diagnosis, care, and treatment. Listening to this show is not a replacement for the care of a trained and licensed professional.

That said, listen in as Suzie explains:

  • What survival strategies are and how they stay with us through adulthood
  • What it takes to heal from a traumatic past
  • What our Inner Critic is and what happens to us when we hear it in our heads
  • How we can become our own abuser

And how we can navigate the 8 strategic priorities we need to manage as entrepreneurs.

As always, listen all the way to the end where I’ll share your cocktail exercise and action step for this episode.
