About Me

Hi, I’m Susan Packard, an entrepreneur who, along with many talented people, created popular TV channels like CNBC, HGTV and Food Network.

I left that work so I’d have more freedom to pursue projects I find meaningful. Today, I write, speak, and work with women and men in all stages of life, at for-profit and not-for-profit companies and have been a contributor to CNBC, Wall Street Journal, and Fast Company. For any difference I might make, I’m grateful.

My philosophy and my writing are about how we can better understand ourselves, so we make wise choices to achieve success and live with purpose.  I’ve learned this over time through mistakes and small victories, and it’s the subject of my current book, Fully Human. I’ve no doubt now that success is an inside job.

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

I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Susan for over 30 years. She’s a very special blend of passion, intellect, creativity and character. I can’t think of a better role model for women in business, or better yet, for men who should be emulating some of her very special qualities as a leader.
