Mid-Life and Inner Mean Girls

Hello Dearest One,

This is a big milestone year for me. I’m turning the big 5-0 in November! How did this happen? It’s a paradox, as I feel so young on one hand and ancient on the other. LOL.

Being squarely in mid-life comes with its perks (more experience and wisdom, no tolerance for BS), but it also comes with its, um, costs (existential angst, creaky joints, and menopause lurking).

It can be a prime time for Inner Mean Girl attacks. You know, those moments where your Inner Critic screams things like

“Shouldn’t you be further along?”

“Why is your retirement savings so small?”

“Wow–you’re getting OLD!”

and the brutal blow of “Is this all there is?”


If you’re nearing mid-life or are beyond it, I want you to know you’re not alone.

I also want you to come along with me for the ride, so I decided to gather up a circle of women in nearing mid-life and beyond for a special, free call with my BFF, Sam Bennett.

I love gathering with women where we can let our hair down, get REAL with each other, and tell the truth about what’s really going on in our lives. It’s rare these days and yet SO necessary for our sanity (you feel me?!).

I hosted a LIVE Video Jam Webcast with one of my best friends, bestselling and award winning author and teacher, Sam Bennett, called “5 Red Hot Truths about Mid-Life” and you are invited to join us.

>>RSVP for FREE and save your spot.

We are going to keep it real and talk about the mess and the magic of midlife.

Perhaps you’re experiencing a mid-life crisis, wondering what your next adventure is supposed to be, and how you can give back in a world gone mad…

Or maybe you’re a mom and you find yourself blissed out as your kids leave home, relishing the empty nest, finally having more time for YOU. (Or for all I know, you’re like me and had kiddos later in life and are facing the truth of having a 3rd grader when you’re almost 50 years old!)…

Or maybe you find yourself wondering, “Is this all there is?” leaving you in an existential quagmire feeling blah…

Midlife ain’t no joke! Let’s gather and talk about this wild ride of mid-life together.

Join us here.


p.s. Why join us for 5 Red Hot Truths about Mid-Life?

We are two women facing the truth of mid-life together.

We have been dear friends for 25 years and have walked with each other during the joys of life: marriages, babies, TV appearances, book deals, awards, rockstar events (that $128k weekend!), multi-six figure online program launches, speaking in front of thousands and so much more, including the messy parts…

Plus, we like to have FUN and tell the truth about what is really going on.

And…if you could use a reset in your life to create your next chapter in paradise, check out the retreat we are doing together in GREECE(!) later this year:


“Midlife is when the universe gently places her hands upon your shoulders, pulls you close, and whispers in your ear: I’m not screwing around. All of this pretending and performing – these coping mechanisms that you’ve developed to protect yourself from feeling inadequate and getting hurt – has to go. Your armor is preventing you from growing into your gifts… Time is growing short. There are unexplored adventures ahead of you. You can’t live the rest of your life worried about what other people think. You were born worthy of love and belonging. Courage and daring are coursing through your veins. You were made to live and love with your whole heart. It’s time to show up and be seen.”

– Brené Brown
