Ep 97: Patti Grabel on Starting Anew After Raising Kids

Mother, wife, writer, producer and ultimately artist Patti Grabel describes the long journey she followed to find herself and follow her passions after focusing solely on her family for many years. Patti paid attention to some things she was struggling with and after seeking advice from a therapist, she decided that pursuing a writing career was her “cure”. Despite many challenges and obstacles along the way, Patti fought through failure and a sense of not belonging to eventually achieve her ultimate goal: getting a tv show on the air before 50! Patti didn’t stop there though and went on to create art and even get her own exhibition in New York. Patti’s story reminds us that life doesn’t have to be over after kids or when we reach mid life.
