Meet a successful consultant who had a dream to make more of a difference with her talents and expertise. Hear how her dream came true, in ways that she couldn’t have ever guessed – and how her reinvention now takes both her and her husband halfway across the world for 5 months each year.
You’ll hear the wisdom she gained in facing challenges along the way, how the words WHAT IF, and an approach she confesses, “was so unlike me,” were key to discovering her calling midlife – a work that is making a vital difference and truly leaving a legacy of love.
You know it’s time for a change and at the same time uncertainty may keep you stuck. But what if your uncertainty is the perfect starting point to explore the question, How can I use my expertise and be useful?

How can I use my expertise and be useful? is the question that today’s guest Susie Rheault asked at the start of her reinvention. Susie, armed with a doctorate in psychology had a successful consulting practice when she began working as a Special Advisor to the Clinton Foundation Health Access Initiative, but she wanted a smaller project and to spend more time in Africa.
In 2010 Susie and her husband, Gil Williams, came upon a small orphanage in Tanzania where nine malnourished orphans, as a result of HIV, were sleeping on a cement floor without even a blanket or sufficient food. This was the beginning of her inspiring reinvention – a true legacy of love.
During the episode we focus on:
- Reinvention is not an overnight process.
- Tools for clarity – the courage to make-it-up.
- Being open to serendipity.
- What makes it worth it?
Susie’s Gem of Wisdom:
“Be bold. Don’t give up. Put your blue-sky, wild dreams out – put them on paper, brainstorm them, and talk to a friend who is all about talking about what’s possible and dreaming big. Don’t hang around people who say it can’t be done, or you’re too old, or trample on your tender shoots of ideas.”
