Alumni of WOMEN of ACTION,

Brava Susan!


  1. Hi,
    I admire the initiative. But I have to admit the web page color combination hinder me to go on any further. Light blue and White don’t work toegher. At least not onmy screen. Right now I have no idea what was showing on screen while I was typing. We are all ambitious and would like to get many things done. If the color combination is a trial to have those that are more Zen-in-mind, then I must not be the chosen one 🙂
    This is a trivial comment. But tis’ about user-friendliness.

  2. What an amzing person, woman, mother, humanitarian and now Friend! I am so pleased and honored to call you friend Susan. Young girls look up to you and women aspire to be like you!
