Welcome to Transformation Talk. Every Thursday for a year, starting in September 2012, I’ll post an interview with someone who is a force for good in the world. These men and women have either deepened their passion or found their calling after experiencing a loss, trauma or diagnosis.
I want to broaden the conversation around grief and its transformative power. My hope is that in their words you’ll find echoes of your story. In their inspired actions, you’ll see yourself and your immense possibility.

This week’s interview is with new author and coming out coach, Dian Reid. Dian’s new book, Seven Days, will be available this spring (head over to her site to sign up for the latest news). Dian talks about the effects of her mother’s murder, her father’s cancer-related death and why she’s so passionate about supporting others in their coming out process.
Running time is about 24 minutes. Bio and link to download audio mp3 are below.
