Entrepreneur Sue Hollis is answering that question in her new book, “Riding Raw: A Journey From Empty to Full.” So how does a successful female entrepreneur — voted a Top 10 Entrepreneur in Australia — running multimillion-dollar travel company, TravelEdge, with 120 employees, find herself on a 400-pound superbike named Voodoo?

I couldn’t wait to ask her. Before our summertime phone chat, I dived into reading Riding Raw to find out how Sue went from living in the fast lane and juggling a high-powered career and being a supermom to searching for something more meaningful. Because, despite her external success, she still felt empty. Riding Raw is the incredible true story of Sue’s 83-day solo journey, starting in British Columbia and down the California coast. She has adventures on glaciers and in roadhouses and encounters with donut-eating dogs and Brazilian bikers. Here’s my candid chat with Sue on being vulnerable and what it took for her to let go, change her story, step out of fear and learn how to love herself.

Put in your earbuds, lionesses. Sue’s voice is about to get Amplified.
