A successful entrepreneur and leading philanthropist, Suzan Hughes gained strength from the childhood challenges she faced as an orphan and foster child to building business empires and creating foundations that help people in need.
At Herbalife, Hughes, along with her husband Mark, built the wildly successful brand into a global juggernaut in a little more than a decade. Next, Hughes launched the Take 10 To A Better You brand, and the iconic Rollermax, a foam roller that can be found in gyms across the globe.
Taking nothing for granted, Hughes is thoughtful about her journey. “It’s been important for me to adopt the right mindset to overcoming self-imposed limits,” she says. “I’ve learned to be fearless, because when you walk in greatness, opposition and fear show up to bully and control you, which can lead you away from your destiny. Don’t let it.”
That sense of fortitude and determination allowed Hughes to turn her energies into a force for good when she co-founded the Herbalife family Foundation in 1994. Over the last 25 years, this outstanding charity has helped millions of vulnerable children with healthy meals children and nutrition in over 60 countries.
“The Herbalife Family Foundation and the Suzan Hughes Education Foundation are my legacy, inspired by my passion to create a brighter future for children around the world” -Suzan Hughes
“I developed the “Take 10” philosophy to help people create a better work/life balance,” Hughes says. “Now that philosophy will help create a better world.”
