Suzanna Clark is on a mission to help ambitious women scale their digital services businesses to $100k+ through her company, the Female Leadership Collective. A former banker turned online entrepreneur, Suzanna - a tea-obsessed Brit, a Projector human design type, and a recovering over-achiever - had it all in her 20s, including the six-figure job and designer bags, yet was absolutely miserable. One day, Suzanna decided the risk to her mental health of staying was greater than the risk of leaving, so she quit her job, booked a one-way ticket to a tropical island, and started her new life. Since then, Suzanna has founded a mission-driven business that gives back, built her dream villa, helped countless women build and scale their online businesses, and even adopted a rescue puppy - all while using her numbers-loving sales expertise to support clients in growing their digital services companies to six-figures and beyond through her podcast, retreats, and the Female Leadership Collective.
