Why Purple?

Purple is associated with royalty, spirituality and healing, and synonymous with the promotion of peace, compassion and kindness. Founder Susan Faith Broude was drawn to the color purple during her healing journey 20 years ago while meditating. She found that wearing purple clothes and amethyst stone jewelry grounded her into her core and she connected deeply to her authentic self.

Susan Faith Broude lives in her truth. “I always carry the light within me so the sun always shines in my heart.”  Susan founded Purple People Inc. 20 years ago after experiencing life-threatening challenges. As she was told to say good-bye to her young child, she experienced a deep connection to her authenticity for her healing journey. Her life’s purpose is to make a positive impact on the world.  Susan offers insight and inspiration for healing by empowering others to honor our differences, celebrate diversity and to shine her light for others to know they are innately able to heal.

Trained as an attorney and with 35 plus years of business experience, Susan’s passion is to inspire others to connect to their soul’s purpose and live a life full of love, compassion, kindness and respect.

Susan Faith’s Award-Winning Books, including PURPLE LOVE and PURPLE PUPPY, are inspirational children’s books that build empathy, focus on positive self-esteem and embrace nature and all living things.

Susan’s newest book contribution is her chapter, “Perfectly Imperfect,” in the #1 Best Selling Series, which includes, “Women Who Influence.” Women Who Influence is a collection of uplifting stories by 30 powerful women who share their journeys to fuel the souls of women globally.

Her message that “You are Perfect Just the Way You Are” for all of her books is based on her motivational program of self-love.

Susan’s vision to impact a broader audience beyond books expands into documentary films that make a difference with the creation of Dog Eats Hat Productions. She is the executive producer and writer of several films, including Let It Begin! A Filmmaker’s Journey, nominated for the 2011 Student Academy Award in Short Documentary.

Recognizing the global impact of bullying, Susan produced and wrote the award-winning feature film, Bullied to Silence, which focuses on verbal and cyber-bullying.
