Susan Packard, Writer, Speaker & co-Founder of HGTV

I used to think I was an extrovert. I know now that connecting with a single person heart-to-heart is what leaves me smiling.

Susan Packard, Writer, Speaker & co-Founder of HGTV, shared the story behind her title with us on Sunday, August 23, 2020.

Susan has been on the ground floor and helped to build powerhouse media brands like HBO, CNBC, and HGTV. She was the co-founder of Scripps Networks Interactive and former chief operating officer of HGTV. Under Packard’s helm, HGTV became one of the fastest growing cable networks in television history. Today HGTV is available in more than 98 million U.S. homes and distributed in over 200 countries and territories. Packard helped to build Scripps Networks Interactive to a market value of over $15 billion. In December of 2019 she was awarded an honorary degree of Doctor of Humanities from Michigan State University.


Susan spent years in the fast paced world of media as the co-Founder of HGTV. As her inner voice began to speak to her a little louder, she realized her need for some self-reflection, and desire to find out who she truly was, and what she wanted. It led directly to her one-on-one, heartfelt work with men and women who themselves are in need of some inner work.  My take away?  Don’t settle for a life that is not serving you.
