Owner of Ball & Chain and Author of Made for Me
Let’s talk about entrepreneurship, fatherhood, live music and children’s books.
When Zack Bush was growing up, he spent his free time listening to jazz. Instead of imagining a career in law or medicine like so many of his classmates, the Miami native knew he would take a different path. Zack learned to play the piano and would speak with family and friends about one day owning a venue that would bring the music he loved to others. Zack is now the owner of Ball & Chain, a historic live-music venue on Miami's famed Calle Ocho, in the heart of Little Havana.
Zack and his partners renovated and restored the nearly forgotten gem, famous for hosting 20th-century jazz greats like Chet Baker, Count Basie, and Billie Holiday. Today, musicians from around the world perform live on the Ball & Chain stage.
Zack's other passion is books. A devoted reader and writer, Zack's lifetime desire to become an author has found a refreshed source of inspiration as the father of three.

- Changing careers
There is strength in sharing our stories about motherhood—how we care for ourselves and our children—and also how we adjust our careers after starting a family. I’m passionate about making women feel a little less alone through sharing. I spent 15 years in TV news before leaving, realizing that “having it all” is actually impossible. I’m now passionate about sharing with other women that there is indeed another chapter for them beyond their first careers, if they want to, or have to, make a change.
