Lilian Sue is a PR coach and publicist. She helps creative entrepreneurs to build healthy PR mindsets and a successful PR strategy.

Lilian grew up in a very traditional Chinese Canadian family. She explains the difficulties that she's had in pushing against the cultural traditions and the strict family roles, and what it's meant to her to live the life that she wanted.

She learnt very early on to put boundaries in place and have ‘No Go Zones’ in order to maintain somewhat of a positive relationship with her parents.

One of the early pieces of entrepreneurship advice that she got from mentors have been ‘Don't take advice from somebody who's never been there’. Because anything they tell you is not going to give you the answer that you need, or that you're looking for, to move forward. And that's been very, very true.

She also thinks that as women, we are not taught to celebrate ourselves enough. And that's what she is trying to change in her business and on a personal level.
