Sue’s “burning curiosity” and unspoken quest for answers was brought into focus when her husband raved about an "amazing" TCI event he’d been to.
“He said it would be right up my alley. Within an hour Joe Pane had me eating out of his hands and I was just loving it and felt like ‘Oh my God, this is it.’
“He’s speaking my language. That’s what I loved. It spoke to me so I was buzzing.”
At first, Sue kept her enrolment at TCI a secret from most people in her life, because she thought they might question why she wanted more in an already-outwardly full life.
“There was as little bit of fear and a guilt around it, guilt that why would I throw away that opportunity and great job. There was also the fear of giving that up.
“Being someone who experiences anxiety, taking a risk is a bit scary for me so I had mixed emotions around it.”
Sue’s way of tackling her TCI challenge was to become “a learning machine,” she says.
She was working long full time teaching hours then studying, and “do you know what, I just found more energy, motivational energy," she says.
“I was just super charged. I wasn’t just learning content but also how to set up a coaching business.
“I was really preparing myself to leave my job while working full time. I was listening to all the business information and advice from TCI and doing the triads and pro bonos.”
