When I first became a coach in 2000 I was one of the first wave of coaches in the UK. Generally young, successful women who’d come from the corporate world, we saw coaching as a way to help people move forward in their lives and make conscious choices about how they wanted to live and how they wanted to feel. Suzy Walker is one of the biggest names to come from that wave of coaches. Now Editor of Psychologies Magazine, she is author of the bestseller “Making the Big Leap” and for many years ran her own highly successful coaching business. In our interview we talk about changing your name mid-life, returning to a “proper job” having worked for yourself, and our beliefs around money... and we end up making a pact together to change our attitudes towards financial security. You’ll enjoy this interview if you’re at a crossroads, if you’re interested in working on your intuition and shifting long-standing beliefs, especially about money, if you’re looking for more balance in your life or you’re keen to pare down your life to a more simple way of living.

81 How to leave your comfort zone behind - Suzy Walker
Your Next Chapter - step into the next version of you
Suzy’s story of gradually moving ever closer to her sweet spot of purpose will likely sound familiar. A definite deep desire to follow a certain path, but an initial lack of self-belief hits the pause button and then life itself intervenes and a detour takes place.
What does it mean to be brave? Is it about having bullet-proof confidence, or smug certainty? If so, I've been doing it wrong all my life. Reflecting on the times when I've been brave, I can't recall a single episode where I've felt bullet-proof or certain. The time I moved countries to attend grad school? I was terrified. For months, I had major imposter syndrome. The time I left my marriage? (...because, to paraphrase Cheryl Strayed, I realised I didn't love him hard enough or true enough or big enough or right). Was it the brave and right thing to do? Absolutely. Was I scared and uncertain? You bet. The time I left a well-paid, but soul-destroying career to start my own business? I was totally wracked with self-doubt. And yes, it turned out to be the bravest, best career choice ever. But still, I felt more weenie than winner at the time. I've learned one thing about bravery: Being brave doesn't mean you're not terrified. It's being terrified and proceeding anyway, in spite of the fear and uncertainty. And if you splatter, it's about getting up again. Today I'm in conversation with Suzy Walker, the editor of Psychologies magazine. Suzy is also a life coach, the author of two books, Making the Big Leap and The Big Peace, and is momma to Charlie (human) and Oscar (canine). Suzy and I discuss what it means to be brave; why resilience is key (especially if you've splattered); and why you don't have to be the smartest or the most talented to be successful. Some highlights: Suzy dreamt of crashing her car - a sign that she needed to be brave and make a change Bravery vs. talent Handling your inner critic Tips on making a big leap Suzy puts her coaching hat on and answers some of your listener questions (on becoming self-employed; on struggling with self-promotion; and on busting a rut) Please enjoy my conversation with Suzy Walker.

Quotes by Suzy: “Courage is moving forward when you’re scared to death... and knowing when not to move forward.” “By being brave, you open all of the doors.” “You’ll never be confident enough to do it. You have to do it so you’ll become confident.”
