2. Sue Miley

Sue Miley is an intelligent Business Coach, who started Crossroads Professional Coaching, after many years in the corporate world, in order to help others seek and find God's plan for their business.

Her education is varied to support her different career directions. First, she earned  her undergraduate degree in Finance at Louisiana State University in 1986. And in 1993,  completed Masters in Business Administration with a focus on Marketing.  Finally, she finished her  education with a Masters in Education in Community Counseling in 2004 because she wanted to become a Licensed Professional Counselor.

This culminated in leading a new operating division of gourmet coffee houses. This was a start-up division with a very different culture than the traditional grocery store and office coffee divisions.

Amidst of all of these, she found God. In her words, "You see I found God somewhere towards the end of my tenure at the coffee company. I felt God calling me to a different path. Although it wasn't the absolute straightest path, I soon left the corporate world, earned my license as a professional counselor, and went on to become a Christian Business Coach and Counselor".

Afterwards, God opened many doors, which provided opportunities to work under other Christian counselors, pastors and even be on staff at her church for a couple of years. This mentorship helped complete her education and experience in biblical knowledge and Christian values.

Over the years, as an Elder and Ministry leader in her  church, she combines her knowledge of business with what she has learnt about walking with God.

I’m really good at what I do and not shy about it…now, if you’re exceptional at something you, shouldn’t be either.)", says Steve Harris.

Some Christians business owners are guilty of this, not being bold at selling themselves and getting way less profit than they should. It prevents then from scaling up and truly being at the position of advantage in their business.

He's been featured on The Economist, Slate Magazine, Yahoo Finance & other news, print and in June 2019, he was also featured on Forbes Africa.

Steve is tough on his clients because he believes that they come to with a destination they want to get to, but they’ve never been and it's his responsibility to get them there; and thus take it seriously.

If you're not ready to put in the work your results desire, then don't call, email or sign-up for anything he prints, deliver or discuss.

He knows that he is tough, but can guarantee that you'll never find someone who's cheering you on and is passionate about being in your corner as much as he is, when he's your coach. It's tough love, but you'll never second guess the love.
