Episode 95: Suzi Hunn & Her Book, Big-Hearted Entrepreneur: Own Your Worth and Amplify a Mission That Matters

Suzi Hunn founded Teach Your Thing in 2017 to help changemakers amplify their impact. Her specialty is designing education experiences that expand audiences and create income streams. Her book, Big-Hearted Entrepreneur, is a practical guide for helping purpose-driven leaders own their worth and amplify a mission that matters to them. Suzi has more than twenty years of experience developing learning tools for nonprofits, social enterprises, cultural institutions, K–12 schools, corporate groups, authors, and founders. As an educator at the Minnesota Historical Society, her largest project was coordinating the second edition of Northern Lights, a history curriculum used by sixty-five thousand sixth graders annually. Other favorites included developing multimedia materials on Ojibwe beadwork and Hmong immigration and presenting at conferences like Games + Learning Society and National Council for the Social Studies. She lives by the rallying cry, “You have medicine that you must own.”  Suzi lives outside St. Paul with her partner and golden retriever.


  • The humility, curiosity, and honor we can have for the work clients have already done.
  • When it comes to teaching, “The person doing the talking is the person doing the learning.”
  • The opportunity that exists among those we’re teaching.
  • How her own experienced trauma and her experience as an entrepreneur bolstered her message to others of recognizing and protecting their worth.
  • How a crime made her more passionate
    about sharing her ideas and made her trust that she had a voice.
  • How much you can achieve for yourself — even in the face of Imposter Syndrome?
  • The power of finding what the right container is for you — does it allow your work to be fun or to be a drudge?
  • Give yourself permission to create what you want to create, not what you think you should create.

The MAIN QUESTION underlying my conversation with Suzi is, What’s the medicine in you that others need? How do you own it and amplify what you can share with others?
