Suzanne's Final Push will remind you to be kind to yourself (and to also be a badass)! Quotes:

“You truly get back what you put out there and when you put all this love, hard work and sweat into your passion, you have to sit back and let it come back to you.”

“You have to be out in the world to find your inspiration.”

“The departure from Honeyhoney was like leaving the womb.”

“Get it out there. The world needs you. We need to be inspired. We need to inspire each other.”

“If you are called to be creative but you’re too scared to do something about it, you’re doing other people a disservice.”
