#185: The Year that Made Me Rethink Everything (Claudia Dreifus)

What if your entire life fell apart in the space of a single year? For Claudia Dreifus, that what-if became a reality. Growing up in New York, Dreifus was a student at NYU in the ‘60s and deeply involved in the Civil Rights movement. She built a career as a journalist, a craft she had practiced since she was a teenager. But in 1992, her life was upended.

Listen in to her conversation with CoveyClub founder Lesley Jane Seymour as she explains why this “trifecta of personal change” forced her to reinvent both her career and her personal life. “You have to look around, you have to see what’s possible,” advises this writer and professor at Columbia University. “You’ve got to plant in different fields so that one of them bears fruit.”
