The Professional Break away
Sue then broke away from that and worked for design agencies as she enjoyed designing interactive material but quickly got bored as she felt wasn’t mentally stimulating and not inspiring enough to do it for a life time as she wanted to leave an legacy of Inspiration behind one day.

Her passion has always been to uplift and help people.
Turning Tragedy into Triumph
After losing a good friend due to Cancer in late 2011, she started the blog “Just Pursue It” in her friend’s memory. Her blog was stemmed from the actuality that her friend who never disclosed how many months she had left to live, always encouraged her to write as she saw that Sue was a natural at inspiring people in general. Her friend had a business called “Inspirations” Sue was then inspired to start an Inspirational blog as she felt it was only right to give back to people the way her friend encouraged in the time of their friendship.
