Where it all began...........
Dreaming is great; doing is better.
It’s time to stop spinning your entrepreneurial wheels and instead gain real traction in your business with a potent combination of knowledge, skills and strategy.
I’m here to show you how.
I’m Suzanne Chadwick – corporate strategist, brand professional, coach, mentor and head honcho at The Connection Exchange. I believe in bold female entrepreneurs creating beautiful businesses that fit their lifestyle – not the other way around! I’m also a massive fan of women supporting women, solid frameworks, collaboration and public speaking (yes really). I also delight in jumping out of planes and off cliffs – the public speaking doesn’t sound so crazy now, does it?
When I’m not running my business (or jumping off things) you’ll find me facilitating fun and interactive networking and workshop events (where you are so much more than just a name-tag), creating digital products to help build your business, connecting like-minded women with my Mastermind Matchmaking groups and of course coaching passionate women on how to grow their brand.
Most of the bright-eyed women I met were very clear on what they wanted from life. You may relate to their wishlist; location independence, work that stirs your soul, feeling excited on a Monday morning and regularly collaborating with the femme de le creme of their industry. Basically turning the daily grind on its head and feeling rejuvenated by your business!
But this dream can be hard to turn into a reality. Many of the women I spoke with found themselves stalling. The money coming in didn’t match the hard work and late nights going out.
So why were so many women stuck? From a distance I could see exactly what was stopping them…
These passion-fuelled women knew where they wanted to go but had no plan on how to get there. No strategy on how to sustainably build their brand and grow their business (and bank account).
MY MISSION IS TO SUPPORT AND GUIDE FEMALE ENTREPRENEURS (JUST LIKE YOU) TO BUILD A BRAND THAT STANDS OUT, START YOUR OWN BUSINESS WITH A BANG AND THEN CONTINUE THAT TRAJECTORY UP, UP AND UP SO THAT YOU CAN ACHIEVE THE LIFESTYLE YOU'RE DREAMING OF.
I COACH ENTREPRENEURS, FACILITATE EVENTS AND CREATE RESOURCES THAT SHOW YOU STEP-BY-STEP THE RIGHT STRUCTURE, SKILLS, STRATEGIES AND SAVVINESS TO BUILD YOUR EMPIRE. BECAUSE YOUR BUSINESS DESERVES TO FEEL LIKE YOU – FUN, FREEING AND FULL OF EASE.
WHAT BRINGS ME HERE?
Looking back, the creation of The Connection Exchange and my own coaching business feels almost like a delightful, serendipitous accident. I had always been interested in business and had a Masters in Human Resource Management to boot. But after years working for “da man” I realised I wanted my career, my life and my future to be my own - so I mixed it up and now run my own biz.
Unsurprisingly, I was not the only one with that dream and before long I had a long line of acquaintances asking to pick my brain with a steady stream “how did you do it’s?”. I found myself revelling in – and excelling at – helping these women by giving a bird’s eye view of their biz, creating solid strategies, setting motivating goals, offering actionable advice and of course putting a healthy dollop of fun back in their business.
Watching women empowering themselves with knowledge and skills was addictive and, more importantly, it was working. This was the impact I wanted to have in the world; my zone of genius. So – with a firm strategy in place – I completed a coaching certification, an online business course and started to develop my own products and services. Now I find myself at the helm of a movement where smart women take control of their lives all while supporting other women on the same mission.
Working together I will help you develop a clear strategy and brand position, become a creative powerhouse and STAND OUT so that people are lining up out the door to work with you.
If you’re ready to bring someone onto your team to create impact, clarity and WOW then I’d love to connect with you.
