Susan Dean

Hi, I’m Susan Dean

I started my own publishing company because I wanted to share people’s stories because I truly believe it changes individuals lives.

Rewind to the beginning. I always knew I wanted to help others. Starting my career as a youth worker, I knew the power of story. When someone heard of another’s achievements, it made them think, “maybe I could do that.” It gave them hope.

I then moved on to become a coach, working with Dr John Gray, author of Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus. People learnt so much from reading his book. It was then I thought, I need to write my story. So, I did

From this, my coaching business grew even faster. Handing out my book gave people the opportunity to get to know, like and trust me. This success made me want to help others do the same.

 I have always listened to peoples’ stories, using tremendous empathy to empower others toward success. This has become my signature trait. 

So, I started in my garage in 2014 fast forward through blood, sweat and tears. I now own and operate a publishing house at Dean Manor on a 5-acre property in Macedon Ranges. With a team of 12, two of which are her adult daughters. To publish hundreds of stories of inspiration, ranging from business success, personal triumph and charity development.

A huge part of my WHY is giving back my time and resources and a part of many wonderful give back projects such as Buy1Give1, Rotary Club, BNI Business Network Industry and Hands Across the Water. 

I am a life and business coach, workshop and train facilitator, publisher and entrepreneur. With my help, coaches, authors, mentors and many other business professionals have been able to share their knowledge and exponentially raise their profile, brand and business.

I am a visionary and keep thinking of new ways business owners can level up in their business, so I have created additional products like audiobooks, online courses, journals, quote cards and more. I love what I do.

Susan and her Team from Dean Publishing are very professional and ethical I felt like the first time I meet Susan I was not only impressed by her work but also by the fact that she understood what I was looking to achieve in a book. Susan coached me and set the agenda and I have not looked back. The writers retreat was fantastic to meet like minded people and the dream team behind Dean Publishing and to get your Professional photo’s Video and Content pulled in all together with an action plan is simply amazing. I have no hesitation in recommending Susan and her amazing team for any aspiring author.

Writing a book, especially one that is partly autobiographical, is a huge task, not only in time but emotionally as well. The person you trust with your story needs to not only have your best interests at heart, but understand that your book is your ‘baby’. Susan and the team she has put together provide the upmost support and guidance not only to get your book published but to be there for you every step of the way. If you have a book in you she in the only choice!
