This week on Women Warriors, our special guest is Susan McMullen, nurse, speaker and writer.  Susan will share her insights on the “Importance of Taking Care of You as a Caregiver.”  Join us this Wednesday, Sept 14th, at noon ET to learn about this important topic.  Your health might depend on it!

Susan McMullen, the founder of The Permission List.. She created The Permission List as a means to provide tools for caregivers, especially women, to give themselves permission to take care of themselves so that they are better able to care for others. The idea was born after Susan experienced, firsthand, the trials, tribulations and ill effects of caring for everyone else first and ignoring her own needs-physical, emotional and spiritual.

Susan is married with three children, cared for both of her parents until their passing, and worked with direct patient care for 26 years. During her nursing career, she was struck by the tendency of caregivers including mothers, nurses, teachers, adult children taking care of their parents and others too many to name, to put others first and not take care of themselves.

Toward that end, Susan created PERMISSION SLIPS which are inspirational cards and PERMISSION Jewelry, both which help to remind us and encourage us to nurture ourselves.  She frequently speaks to audiences on caring for you first.  Please visit Susan at www.permissionlist.com, follow her on twitter at @permissionlist, or contact her at 770-317-6991 or by email susan@permissionlist.com
