In this episode, Barbara Newman shares with us the twists and turns that she’s experienced in her life and career that have brought her to the exact place that she’s meant to be right now.
Barbara always wanted to be a cowgirl. Growing up in New York didn’t stop her. She took that can-do spirit and became an award-winning global creative director in advertising. After hearing a story on NPR about the American Cowgirl, she was so inspired, she left the ad world and found herself in Montana, Wyoming and Texas filming a documentary about their lives. She interviewed strong, persevering, courageous women and was inspired by their tenacity and love for the land. That's when her storytelling took another turn. Barbara became an author, and wrote a young adult eco-fantasy, The Dreamcatcher Codes, launching Summer 2021.
Listen in to her story, you’ll be all the better for it!
