(1938 – 2012)
Susan made the phrase “Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway” famous worldwide, but first she lived it. She helped millions of people throughout the world learn to overcome their fears, to heal their relationships, and to live with confidence and love, but only after she experienced those things herself through years of searching, learning, and self-discovery.
Susan was so excited to share the things she learned that first she became a teacher and then an author. After Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway became an international bestseller, she went on to write 16 more bestselling books, recorded many audios, became a sought-after public speaker, and TV and radio guest. What made her such a compelling author and speaker was her willingness to reveal so much of herself and the struggles she faced. With humor, she was able to connect to her readers in a way that is still unusual and much beloved.
Susan passed away in 2012, but her universal message of love and gratitude continues to touch people worldwide. For a short autobiography and longer description of Susan’s work, click here.
