Leaders at every level of business today face incredible stressors: pressure to increase profitability, competing demands on your time, a 24/7 competitive global marketplace, keeping up with technological advances, Businesses are challenged as never before and leaders are burning out in record numbers.

Even if you are an exceptional entrepreneurial leader who is smart, passionate, focused and committed to results, you can still feel that gnawing in your gut that tells you something just isn’t working.

You are taking action, but it’s not producing the kind of sustainable results you want. You don’t like how it feels, and want something different. You may even feel ashamed that you can’t see how to fix the problems. Worse yet, other people are affected. People who count on you.

If this describes your situation, then this book is for you!

I am drawn to continually learn on how I can “improve” my thoughts and my behavior as I realize there is a lot of “wisdom” out there that can assist me in forging ahead with my life. Learning in this arena has improved my relationships with my family, upgraded the quality of clients that I attract, and most importantly, assisted me in countless ways to uphold who I am. I found Step Up Now presents a complete collection of timeless wisdom, ideas and processes in one place. It is written in simple and concise language. It is a holistic compilation of the foundations for navigating life. A timely and timeless book which I now have sitting on my desk.

-Antreas E. Ghazarossian, President & CEO, Cost Containment Advisors

This great manual provides a clear path to destination Leadership, and also the tools to get there. I think Susan has it exactly
 right, that among others: authenticity, compassion, curiosity, and observation will free us to allow our creative selves, and the dynamic synthesis of that, to emerge in a leadership setting.

And just as importantly, the tools are correct. ‘Muscle memory’ of centering, removing the ego, the search for authenticity and truth, bring even the most difficult situations into clear focus. Step Up Now has me fully engaged!

“Step Up is Engaging!”

This well written book offers practical advice to navigate today’s fast-paced world. It is written from the perspective that we can all improve our work/life balance and reduce stress, which are timeless and highly valuable principles.

“I strongly recommend reading this book.”

Leadership is an inside job

In Step Up Now, you’ll discover essential leadership skills which are rarely taught, yet easily implemented and proven to work. These skills are based on the most cutting edge research in emotional intelligence, neuroscience, ancient wisdom, and personal practice.

This book is for you if:

  • You have an inner drive and curiosity to learn more about yourself, your team, and the tools you need to become an outstanding leader
  • You strive to dive deeper and aren’t satisfied with the status quo
  • You are tired of feeling frustrated, burned out, and dissatisfied
  • You want breakthrough professional and personal goals
  • You want a direct, comprehensive, do-it-now leadership approach that makes a sustainable difference
I have been a corporate CEO, a practicing physician, an entrepreneur, an author, and a business partner with the well-known personal development coach, Tony Robbins. These experiences have allowed me to learn and experience a tremendous amount about leadership, management, success, health, relationships, and corporate culture. All this and more is found within the pages of Susan’s wonderful, unique, and compelling book, “Step Up Now”.

Having read many dozens of leadership and management books, and even more personal development books, I can’t say I have ever seen one that provides such an interesting and insightful combination of all these areas like this book does. Specifically, the integration of western corporate management with traditional eastern philosophy is truly profound.

I recommend “Step Up Now” for any leader and manager (and really, for anybody) who wants to find more meaning and fulfillment in their career, job, and life.

In her book, Step Up Now: 21 Powerful Principles for People Who Influence Others, Susan Freeman serves as the reader’s Sherpa, carefully guiding him/her through their leadership psyche. Her powerful lessons enable the reader to sit back and think introspectively about his/her strengths, challenges and responsibilities – followed by exercises that cause the reader to take action, put to practice the book’s principles and generate striking results from his/her heightened ability to shape outcomes. This is also a business book that brings heart into the equation – incorporating poetry crafted by the author’s son – a testament to the authentic nature of the work. I recommend this book for any current or emerging leader, especially the budding entrepreneur, seeking to take a more holistic view of his or her organization, leadership style and/or circle of influence.

“Susan Freeman serves as the reader’s Sherpa”


I really enjoyed your book, Step Up Now. I appreciate the way you combined book knowledge with the emotional and physical aspects of leadership. Leadership is not possible without all three and no matter how strong we are there is always work to be done to improve upon all aspects, especially the importance of taking care of ourselves.

–Andrea Tocco, MBA, Founder and President, Etica Accounting
