Susan D Sharp

Artist, Speaker, Author of Mid-Life Wisdom and 1 Habit Co-Author

Susan Sharp is an abstract artist, author of Mid-Life Wisdom, and a contributor to the 1 Habit book series.  She’s a speaker with a passion for understanding our creative potential and motivations.  Her blend of humor and ease of presentation makes her a sought-after speaker and podcast guest.  Susan speaks about her career in the arts, the artist’s workspace and its importance in creativity, her Midwest upbringing, her creative process, her career in (and departure from) teaching in higher education, and the desire to see all people—especially those who don’t consider themselves  creative—let go of limiting beliefs and blocks to their greatness.

Through a combination of years of work as a theatre professor and personal study on creativity as well as her own involvement in numerous creative pursuits (writing, art, music, design, directing, playwriting, craft, and voiceovers)  Habits become the cornerstone of an artist’s work.  Susan’s best habit is currently featured in the book, 1 Habit: 100 Habits from the happiest achievers on the planet, by Steve Samblis, now an Amazon best-seller in three separate categories!

1 Habit: 100 Habits from the World’s Happiest Achievers – Paperback

You know the joy you feel when you are so passionate about your “why” that you can’t wait to wake up and jump right into life? That motivation will get you started, but to be able to follow through, you need the Habits that will help you place one foot in front of the other when things get tough.

Author, Steve Samblis spent years searching the world for the most successful people on the planet. He got to know them and asked them each “What was the one most crucial habit in your life that has made the most significant impact on your success.” He then took these 100 Habits and put them into a book called 1 Habit.

Not only does the 1 Habit contain the Habits, but it also teaches you how to make a Habit part of who you are. Make it part of your being. Once instilled in you, the Habits becomes something you just automatically now do, and that automates your pathway to success.

1 Habit for Women Action Takers (AMAZON #1 BEST SELLER)

Habits Shape Who We Are.

The cool thing, though, is we can instill in ourselves good Habits. Even better, we can change bad habits (aka un-Habits) into good Habits.

In this book, you will find stories from women action takers who are on a mission to make a significant impact on this planet by sharing their Habits and un-Habits to help you place one foot in front of the other when you need it most.

No matter how much you wish, hope, pray, desire, want, or manifest, nothing happens without action. You can see an opportunity staring you in the face, but if your Habit is to ignore that opportunity and turn the other way, that opportunity is lost forever.

Mid-Life Wisdom: Looking Back, Moving Ahead

Are you at or approaching mid-life and starting to feel restless? Or perhaps you’re asking, “Is this all there is?” Mid-Life Wisdom encourages you to look back to see just how far you’ve come, and to celebrate the wisdom you’ve acquired along the way. This book is a dose of encouragement, a nudge toward self-reflection, and a promotion of forgiveness–of self and others–as you move ahead to the best time of your life. The book is a unique format of journal, self-discovery exercises and candid essays from the author’s own journey to mid-life that will help the reader to frame their own journey to this point. The reader is not instructed on how to survive mid-life, but rather to learn from the past, laugh at ourselves and embrace our middle years and make them everything we want. Forgive yourself, forgive others and move into a wonderful place of peace and self-love.
