Susan Spaulding’s entrepreneurial mindset and decades’ long marketing career has helped business owners, executives, and C-suite leaders uncover market driven opportunities that lead to great outcomes.

Susan knew that the “silver tsunami” of retiring Baby Boomers meant that millions are asking some tough questions: What do I do after I retire? How can I prepare my business for a successful hand-off? Can I reinvent my career?

Drawing on her unique understanding of the Boomer generation and their drive to do retirement differently, Susan created Recalibrate for Life 2.0 and the Transition Navigation System. Both offer powerful, streamlined processes to help exiting leaders create a plan, both for the businesses they are leaving and the new lives they hope to create for themselves.

Her expertise and experience offers top leaders strategic paths for navigating the challenges of leaving behind a business, creating a new future, and finding success in Life 2.0. By offering an innovative system for engineering a successful transition, Susan has helped clients all over the world recalibrate for success.
