Ambers guest, Susan De Lorenzo says, "You live you life by either design or default". And, there's a lot of truth in that! In this episode we start out talking about Susan's "dark night of the soul"...or dark nights; and how she used hers to help her live a more joy filled, authentic life. You can do the same whether you're in your dark night or already through it even! Susan is an Author, Speaker and Certified Transformational Life Coach who focuses on helping other women who are emerging from life-altering adversities themselves and guides them to evaluate the insights and wisdom that such times hold (like living through a global pandemic). In this conversation you'll hear about how after a year of fighting and surviving invasive breast cancer, Susan was dealt another life altering blow when her husband at the time, told her he wanted to leave the marriage. Then she shares some of the wisdom she's gathered through this experience, along with a little bit about some other personal challenges she's overcome...with advice on how you can overcome your own challenges, big or small...and get in the drivers seat of your life.
