TueNight 10: Susan McPherson

To know Susan Mcpherson is to know three new friends; she’s the ultimate connector. The pint-sized powrhouse delights in bringing women together. And that social good extends to her own business. Four years ago (this month!) Susan founded a social impact consultancy, McPherson Strategies. Her firm help brands form long-term value by standing up for what’s right and for the thing that will make the world a more just and peaceful place. She’s also one of our great TueNight storytellers — whether navigating the wild and wooly world of online dating after 50, or swimming naked in the Finish arctic.

1. On the nightstand:  Too many unread New Yorker issues, Nilofer Merchant’s brand new Onlyness and Jennifer Romolini’s Weird in a World That’s Not and a brand new Lelo vibrator (can I say that?)

2. Can’t stop/won’t stop: Resisting Trump and his band of cronies

3. Jam of the minute: Loving the Smoke Fairies and Grace Weber

4. Thing I miss: This completely dates me but the Sopranos, X Files and running marathons (yes, managed to do 6 of them before social media, so they didn’t really count)

5. 80’s crush: Um, I can’t recall. In the late 70s, I fell for Al Pacino after seeing the absolutely pathetic film, Bobby Deerfield!

6. Current crush:  No one special guy, although, I’m looking for him….unless he’s an endangered species which is certainly possible.

7. Will whine about:  What else? The current crazy man pretending to be the president.

8. Will wine about:  All the wine I love and my wonderful super dog, Phoebe!

9. Best thing that happened yesterday: Hung art on my wall in my living room after 10 years of inhabiting these digs.

10. Looking forward to:  Working on a major project to help the business world stand up for women’s rights to reproductive healthcare and finally writing my book.
