Show Notes

There are a handful of topics that over the past several years have blown our minds, dropped our jaws, and been a formative rewrite on the highest levels. Cue today’s conversation with Barbara Brooks, Founder of Second Act Women, for that in spades. Enjoy. 

Today’s main objective: celebrate and honor the POWER of middlesence, shattering harmful (and frankly BS) age-related stereotypes and embrace the beauty that comes with every phase of life ✨

Right now - ⅛ of the global population are experiencing menopause, while simultaneously controlling 1/10 of the global spending power. And, STILL, the majority feel overlooked, unheard, and undervalued by society.

We're addressing ageism and ableism - the two isms that can affect us at any point in our lifetime. Middlesent women often find themselves excluded from so many aspects of life, including from the job market. But, with the help of this week’s guest, Barbara Books, we're here to encourage them to take charge of their own economic power. Starting their own businesses, building their own networks, and creating their own universes is not only possible but empowering 💪🏼

And now, let's talk about the pressure to reverse aging! It's time to say no to the anti-aging routines and simply embrace our age. After all, aging gracefully means embracing all aspects of life, from the joys to the challenges.

Join us as we celebrate the second act of these incredible women and work to undo all the unnecessary pressures that women in middlesence have to face. In this week's episode, we talk about letting go of anti-aging rhetoric, how to manage menopause symptoms when you haven’t been taught how to, and how to create sustainable intergenerational workplace relationships. 

Remember, you're not alone in this. Feel what you need to feel and embrace every moment of this beautiful life. Let's redefine what it means to be middlesence together!
