Susanne Lake - Sharing Her Gift With Other Women
NAWBO SFBA is pleased this month to spotlight Susanne Lake.
Susanne is an entrepreneur at heart. After working for others in tourism and technology for more than thirty years, she retired from a middle management government job so she could focus her energy on helping women create wealth. Through her Rodan + Fields Skincare direct sales business, she loves to be her own boss, to be her best self, and to be of service to others.
Susanne became a NAWBO member because she wants to be part of the bigger picture. She wants to make a difference in the world and be up to great things. That's something she felt she could do, being part of a national organization. And how can NAWBO members help her with her business? She is looking for women who are looking for something more than the status quo. Network marketing is not for the faint of heart, but it is so worth the freedom it brings.
Susanne's mother was by far the biggest influence in her work life. Her mother immigrated to the U.S. from Germany in the early 60's with three children in tow - ages 1, 4 and 7 - with limited English speaking skills. She made a name for herself in the hospitality industry by working hard and caring for her employees. She knew if she treated her employees with respect, they would, in turn, perform to their greatest capacity. She was highly admired in her field. She led by example.
What is the best advice Susanne ever received? That being a rebel is going to be hard, but worth it.
- Much of her time right now is spent bringing awareness to the American public that children are being separated from their parents at detention facilities in the U.S. It's not a fun topic, but it is so significant. Susanne is passionate about standing up for the children who can't stand for themselves.
- She goes to Souvla almost every time I'm in the city. She usually get the Chicken salad with fennel, navel orange and the Greek fries.
