About Susan

Susan’s expertise is two-fold.

Taking your firm and creating a comprehensive marketing and business development plan ideal for your practice groups and your attorneys’ personalities and lifestyle goals.  Or one-on-one coaching of attorneys to walk through the process of personal branding, learning and perfecting networking and socializing skills, and increasing a book of business so lawyers can work smarter, not harder.

Susan Baughman is a sought after award winning professional speaker, seanchai (Irish storyteller) and entertainer.  She began her competitive speaking career over a decade ago.  She then began speaking to groups on money topics, while sharing the financial knowledge she gained when she became a Stockbroker for a major Northeast brokerage firm.

She uses her public speaking abilities as a platform to help others:  whether sharing the signs and risks of domestic violence, or tying to educate everyone and anyone on the important issues of “money in America!”  Any life she can touch in a positive way makes her public admittance of her past violent life worth the pain of sharing her story.  And the thought of helping just one more person to a life of responsible financial choices keeps Susan preaching her message on money!

Susan is a “damn-Yankee” as they say, but got to Texas as fast as she could!
