Susan Armstrong's Sobriety Story – The White Picket Fence

Listen to Susan Armstrong’s heartbreaking, touching and inspirational story of recovery from alcohol and drug addiction. Susan bravely shares her story of being a member of a motorcycle gang, a victim of sexual and physical abuse and her experience being homeless to completely turn her whole life around. Today she is an internationally known speaker, author, trainer and coach.

It was truly a pleasure to hear this amazing story and it is not one you want to miss if you are struggling with your beliefs with getting sober and being happy in life. Her story begins with growing up in a family with the “white picket fence”, but quickly becomes anything like the feelings that phrase typically evokes.

“Sue, you have enormous power, light, and the ability to inspire and uplift others.  You are wonderful.”  Barbara De Angelis Ph.D. #1 NY Times Bestselling author

For the past 14 years Susan has worked with global organizations to help them improve the way they do business.  Whether working with Sales, Management, Leadership, or Personal Development, Susan is able to captivate her and motivate with her warm style and entertaining wit.  Susan is also a gifted personal growth teacher, author and coach, working with women to help them overcome their barriers to personal and professional success.

Susan herself has learned to overcome a great deal of faulty thinking as chronicled in the book “An Invisible Prison, a true story of survival”.  A bright child, destined to accomplish great things, she was lacking two very important components of success: coping skills and a sense of self. As a result of these deficiencies, instead of doing well in school and going on to a rewarding career, she chose an alternate route.  Susan has spent many years developing her own sense of esteem and accomplishment, and now shares her knowledge and experience with others’ so they might find their own happiness and success. The principles Susan uses and teaches are the same principles she used to go from homeless, to making minimum wage, and eventually, to her current position as internationally known Speaker, award winning Trainer, and award winning Author of “An Invisible Prison” – a remarkable story of triumph over self-defeating behaviors.

Susan Armstrong has been honored by CAMH as an “Extraordinary Person”, as well, she appears on many television and radio shows including Discovery Channel’s Health on the Line, Life Television, CHTV Morning Live, Rogers Television’s Woman to Woman, One-on-One and is a repeat guest on the Valder Beebe Show, an award winning spiritual talk show.

Susan was also recently awarded the Canadian Society for Training and Development (CSTD) Gold Award for Excellence in Training (2007).
