Episode 1: Welcome to the Intentional Greatness Podcast, with Sue Hawkes
I’m Sue Hawkes, and I want to welcome you to the debut episode of the Intentional Greatness Podcast. My goal with this podcast is to ask you the tough questions and teach you the skills, practices, and mindset you need to become an unf💗kwithable leader, entrepreneur or business owner.
On my show, you will hear interviews with leaders who shattered their own illusions of a “perfect life” and who refuse to be defined or limited by their circumstances. This show is going to be smart, informative, and most of all, challenging. I cut through the bullshit and teach you how to power through to the next level and realize your own incredible potential. Thank you for jumping in and taking this ride with me.
What You Will Learn:
- I share how I was bitten by the entrepreneurial bug and found my calling and passion after I built my first business in the 5th-grade selling macrame plant hangers door-to-door to raise money for family Christmas gifts.
- I discuss my early career wins, running two successful businesses by the time I was in my early 30s. I then share how the 2008 economic crisis brought those businesses crashing down, while I was also going through a painful divorce, foreclosure, and the death of my brother and parents in a short span of time.
- I explain why the loss I experienced during that difficult time taught me to stop chasing perfection. Once I realized my image of a perfect life was just an illusion standing in the way, I stopped letting it hold me back from my full potential.
- I share why I launched this podcast, with the goal of helping entrepreneurs, business owners, leaders and people aspiring to those positions to become stronger by asking difficult questions while teaching vital actionable practices and skills to help you become the leader you are meant to be.

You’re here because you know that learning never ends. You’re the kind of entrepreneur, business owner or leader who realizes that the pursuit of a perfect life, while a worthy goal, is also an impossible one. You know there is no end to the race, but you’re ready to power through anyway. You work twice as hard as everyone else but get half the recognition. You know that the climb to the top is endless, but you’re going to make the climb anyway. In short, you’re ready to become an unf💗<kwithable leader.
