Doug Katz

Some call me a renaissance man. Others say that I have ADD. Either way, I have done a lot of things. From Aikido to playing the banjo and mouth harp to riding motorcycle to sport shooting, I am always interested in new hobbies and endeavors. Some stick and become part of my life. Others become a good lesson in where not to spend my time and resources. All of them started with a first step, which is why I have chosen to share GettingStarted.Life and our expert guests with you. I hope that you enjoy our shows and find value and fulfillment from the information that we bring to you.
