Suzy Batiz is a serial creator and expert in entrepreneurial intuition who has built an empire by tackling taboo topics and shaping culture by challenging societal norms. She doesn’t recognize conventional boundaries and operates on an expansive plane of “anything is possible.” Today, Suzy teaches other entrepreneurs the feminine approach to business—how to tune into intuition, turn on your body intelligence and dive into creative energy to achieve a naturally abundant flow state. After rising from some of life’s lowest lows, Suzy embarked on a spiritual sabbatical where she developed internal happiness and abundance. Then, Suzy unexpectedly had an idea that she described as “alive” and developed it into an exponentially growing, debt-free enterprise worth $500 million without borrowing a cent or enlisting a single investor. Suzy is now best known as the inventor, founder and CEO of Poo~Pourri, the cult-favorite, all natural before-you-go toilet spray and genius behind supernatural, a new line of game-changing, natural household cleaning products.
