Once upon a time...
"Rebel with a Cause" has always been an appropriate title for Sue. From an early age she has had that "emotions that drip off the wall" personality, all 5'2" of her! Seeing the glass "half full" has been a constant part of her "inner vision", even in the super-rough times. This, combined with her honesty, integrity and attention to the details are what has made her unique. She will look straight into your eyes and tell you that God has given her an immense, unconditional love for His people. You don't just hear those words, though, you feel that as soon as you meet her!
Her company, THE INNER VIZION states that deep within each of us lies our unique "gifts".
As a child, we donned tutus and silk slippers, dreaming of being a ballet princess. We yielded wooden swords, believing we could conquer an army. We stood tall with our "microphone brushes" and sang our hearts out. We felt invincible, utilizing our gifts at every turn. And then, bang we grew up, reality set in and we buried those gifts, deep. Sue Ross, founder of The Inner ViZion, is on a quest to help you uncover and re-discover your Inner ViZion that God blessed you with from your early beginnings. Through biblical insights and real-life illustrations, you will find yourself being drawn back to the fact that you "can do" instead of relinquishing yourself to the quasi-inevitable "can't do". She has a unique way of moving the "immovable" by peeling back "layer by layer" from the walls that we spend a lifetime building.
Sue understands that building a ministry/business requires the 'whole' picture to be viewed. She sits one-on-one with a client and then finds what fits comfortably. Not taking him/her so far out of their box, but instead, working within 'their box' and then 'out of the box' of the rest of the world. This formula brings planned success to those who are just starting to build a foundation, building upon a foundation that has already been there and even those who are adding on. When ideas are unique to the client alone, this starts the ball rolling and gets tongues wagging about their music/business/career/product. She truly cares about each of her clients, knowing them each by name and reiterating the fact that "YOU CAN DO IT".
Today you can find Sue teaching leadership skills through her self-penned leadership devotional "Breaking Through from the Inside Out!" and life-filled storytelling through her talk, "From an unreachable youth, to a teachable woman". She shares what didn't work in her life and most of all, what did! Her irresistible humor and contagious laughter, along with a sincere desire to share life's secrets will provide answers to questions and question the unanswered. Her talk entitled "Raising Sane Kids in an Insane World - The 12 Step Program", which is also the title of her upcoming book, will have you thinking, laughing, agreeing and then doing! With the skills brought forth not only from her marketing experience, but with a grass roots rendering of building three businesses and consulting with hundreds, Sue will show your audience how to "focus" with her talk on "Success : Is that with two E's or one?!? With leadership heading off it all off, her talk on "L (to the fourth power) "Listen, Learn, Live It, Lead" is a must for all small business owners and individuals in leadership positions".
