#168  Today’s episode is about the zig-zaggy path we take through our careers and our lives.  It’s about how our childhood dreams stay with us and provide inspiration on that journey until one day realized.  It’s about how music can be a spiritual, connective, healing experience.  And it’s about the growth we experience when we push our edge by living the life of our dream.

Kathy is joined today by creative entrepreneur, Diane Hatz.  She has had careers in the record industry and a non-profit before pursuing her dream of becoming a full-time writer.  Diane’s book, Rock Gods and Messy Monsters, was recently released.

Here’s what we cover:

  • An overview of Diane’s unusual career path and its unifying thread;
  • The 1990s music scene in New York City;
  • The role spirituality plays in her life;
  • The decision to move to New Mexico after 30 years in Manhattan; and
  • How to use tenacity to find yourself.
