I’m Susan Rampson.
At my core, I’m an encourager. An adventurer. An explorer of possibilities.
And, I’m a “Baba”. A grandmother.
I’m an adventurous girl in my 50s who has felt the squeeze of changing career opportunities while trying to encourage and assist my adult children and my active, aging, and geographically remote extended family.
I’m a native New Yorker, now living with my family in Colorado. I’ve had a career in high tech corporate America, and until now I’ve had the most fun (and pain) raising four kids and building my own Internet startup from nothing to a 7-figure business—way back in the day when the Internet was known as “the World Wide Web”.
When the recession happened just before 9/11, I had to change course. I returned to the corporate world and worked at a startup that was honest with itself, and brought love and respect for customers and coworkers into the office. We struggled and grew at the same time. And we were acquired by one of our customers who dreamed of moving in the same direction.
Now I’m leaving the corporate world again—not an easy decision. I’m experimenting. I’m expanding my understanding that the unknown is not unknowable, and I’m finding ways to be (and stay) peaceful and happy.
