Insightful Perspectives for Women in Business

About Me

Hi, I’m Susan Packard, a business builder of many popular cable channels such as HBO, CNBC, HGTV and Food Network.

I left that work a while ago so I’d have more freedom to spend time on projects I find meaningful. Today I write, speak, and work with women in all stages of life, at for-profit and not-for-profit companies. For any small difference I might make through my work, I’m grateful.

My philosophy and my writing are about women having the ability to make well-reasoned choices in their lives and careers.

Thanks for visiting and I hope you’ll be inspired by some of the information here!
