Work with me


Would you like to collaborate?

As a social influencer, it is my pleasure to engage an audience and share my expertise and enthusiasm for travel, restaurants, delicious food, unique products and midlife experiences.

As a brand ambassador, I offer a truthful, infectious energy and upbeat personality to each promotion and will support each campaign through all of my social media channels.

I am available for sponsored posts, brand ambassadorships, press trips, social media consulting, advertising and video hosting. If you have questions regarding my travel destinations and/or any other topics, I would love to talk with you.

Consulting with all bloggers ~

I have expanded my world by working on a one on one basis with new bloggers and with bloggers who are looking for a fresh perspective. We discuss what is working well and what may need some adjusting. After 4 years of blogging experience, I have a lot to offer. I grew this blog audience person by person hoping to inform, inspire and connect. I love it. I really love it.

I offer an introductory package that includes a one hour planning session along with a 30 minute follow up for $150.00 We can then meet (virtually) on an as needed basis.

Here are a couple of recommendations from two of my happy clients:

Linda Higdon ~ Global Heart Journeys

“Okay, all! I had a one-on-one mentor/coaching session with Suzanne and it was the highlight of the conference for me. You gave generously and yet practically and specifically to where I am right now in growing my travel business.” 

“So glad I jumped in and said “Yes” to Suzanne.” 

“More to come.”

Angie Conquer ~ Bama on the Road

“Working with Suzanne as a mentor/consultant on my travel blog has not only helped me further my goals, it has been a pleasure. From our initial conversation, I found her to be articulate, knowledgeable, professional and personable. She does her homework specific to my blog and is genuine and forthright with critique and then practical suggestions and insights.”

 “My blog is relatively new so I anticipate and look forward to consulting with Suzanne much more in the future!”

Working with brands ~

Who knows this audience better than someone who is smack in the middle of living it!

Mid-lifers are huge consumers. This age group is in-flux because their kids are just leaving the nest and they have more time and more disposable income. Some are changing direction and many are checking out new possibilities. As savvy buyers they (me too) usually make decisions based upon personal recommendations from friends and family and are not usually persuaded by traditional marketing. Blogs are a BIG resource and almost everyone does their homework before making a purchase, planning a trip or even going to a new restaurant.
