Today our expert guest is Susan Winter, a bestselling author and relationship expert specializing in higher thinking for an evolving world. She writes, speaks, and coaches on cutting-edge partnership models, as well as traditional relationship challenges, from a platform that fosters self-esteem and personal empowerment.

Susan’s first book, Older Women/Younger Men, opened the hearts and minds of readers worldwide to the validity of this type of age-gap love. Susan’s second book, Allowing Magnificence, completely reframes how we view life’s challenges, empowering the reader to reconnect with the limitless power they already possess.

Susan continues to write about relationships and love as a contributing writer for The Huffington Post and The Good Men Project.

 

Older Women/Younger Men

“When our authenticity collides with what we are doing, we make a choice that is right for us… and it may not be the choice that others endorse.”

Susan wrote her first book after one of her relationships caused a literal witch hunt: she had a TV show called Higher Ground throughout the North East, and a petition was sent to local outlets claiming she was a witch and a prostitute (and a lesbian).

She can laugh at it now, but at the time it was very hurtful. They couldn’t just be in love; she had to have him under a spell, and there had to be something perverted about it.

Allowing Magnificence

“The things that we call challenges can actually be reframed.”

Susan’s second book is, thematically, radically different.

Throughout most of her life, Susan doubted her take on the world; her internal answer was always so different from her parents and everybody else around her.

Through a series of dating mishaps and research, Susan started to trust herself – and she gave herself permission to live a life driven by her own understanding of the world. Life is guiding us, and most challenges can be reframed as something trying to reroute you to a new path.
