With every woman in the room standing on their feet, we honored Presidential Director Susan Fisher with the 2018 Women of Power Mentor Award at this year’s Leadership Gala at Ignition.
Susan has been an integral and loving constant in our Women of Power community, often bringing along new Associates and making them feel welcome. She’s shown us how to truly be a woman of power by nurturing and mentoring others on their Stream journey.
Through tears, Susan accepted the award by remembering when she, while looking out onto a Stream crowd that was 85 percent women, thought, ‘We should do something.’ Despite various adversities, Susan and others started a Stream women-only call that helped set the foundation for Women of Power today. That call helped pave the way for what’s grown into a powerful, supportive community of women from all walks of life.
Teaching was Susan’s calling, but it became clear that that profession alone was not going to help her get control of her financial life. Two years into her job as a high school principal, Susan was shown the business by her brother. Susan says he tapped into her competitive spirit, promising to make a lot of money in Stream. From that point on, she ran her business full steam ahead.
Known to her team as Lady Fish, Susan found true success after two years when she was able to pay off burdensome credit card debt. Then, she retired from teaching 10 years earlier than planned, and has used her time and financial freedom to help others change their lives. Today, she is Stream’s #12 Money Earner and she shows no signs of stopping!
