My name is Sue Vought and am a mid-forties (how did that happen?), trumpet player, photographer, animal-loving gardener lucky enough to have a supportive partner, great friends and family who I share my life with. Through this support, I have a rekindled passion for living the best life that I can and have found that I can help others to do that too. In education for 20 years, I wanted to spend more time working with people to help them to feel happy and good about themselves and when I stumbled upon coaching and found the amazing effect it could have on people’s lives, I wanted in! Now I run a successful business based in the UK helping as many people as I can manage to live the best version of their lives! Here’s to the future because it looks great!
1- In no more than three sentences, please explain what you do
I am a Personal Development Coach working with women who are doing ok but are destined to be great. I help them by building up their confidence so that they can conquer new challenges in business and in their personal lives. Highlighting particularly women who have slipped into a life that was more for convenience than choice, we work together to re carve a life that they love.
2- Who inspires you?
I am inspired by great speakers such as Brené Brown to everyday people like my friend Sam who is a determined and motivational person, to my brilliant and dedicated partner Sally to the children I teach who overcome barriers and challenges on a daily basis. Inspiration is everywhere!
3- What is the biggest change you want to see in the world?
The biggest change I want to see in the world is a true representation of women. Fair and equal pay reflecting aptitude, a decent representation of women in the media as intelligent people rather than sexual objects and a shift in the film industry to honour both of these. Only then will women grow up confident and able to fully grasp their potential.
4- What would you like to be remembered for?
I would love to be remembered for being that person who was kind and thoughtful and brought out the best in people.
5- What is the most interesting new idea you’ve come across in the past year?
The most interesting idea that is new to me is the use of the Theta state to help retrain your brain either to help cure phobia or to increase your positive thoughts. This has become an active tool in my coaching arsenal! Ideas that are new to the world that I like are the use of more plant-based products to manufacture with as opposed to our obsession with plastic and painting elephant’s and rhino’s horns so that their tusks are useless to poachers.
