74: Phillippe Diederich and the Cultural Influences That Shaped His Career(s)
4 days ago
My guest today, Phillippe Diederich is an award-winning novelist, and the author of three books, Sofrito, Playing with the Devil’s Fire, and his forthcoming mystery, The Last Girl (written under the pseudonym, Danny Lopez). Before he became a novelist, much of his photojournalism work centered around the Latin American culture, mainly in Cuba and Mexico. Phillippe was a nomad who enjoyed the early days of his career when he could walk the streets getting a pulse of the people. Phillippe is a devoted husband and father who believes our time here is short. He has an abundance of personal cultural influences from which to draw to build his stories. He is a man of the world, who allows us into his, with every book he writes. During this episode, Phillippe shares the inspiration behind his stories, how the book industry made him a young adult author and where he took some of his favorite photos.

Inspiring story of empowerment
Ever Better may be new, but I've already found inspiration from it! This year I've begun listening to podcasts about entrepreneurship and personal development, which inspires me to move forward on my own goals. I loved this interview. Hearing from a grandmother who's kicking butt as an inventor and salesperson helps remind us it's not too late to jump in with a new venture of our own. Vogt has great rapport as an interview, and I can't wait to hear more episodes.
