    DGAF RERUN: ‘Small Hinges Move Big Doors,’ unpacking co-dependency and boundaries with life coach Susie Pettit.

    DGAF RERUN: ‘Small Hinges Move Big Doors,’ unpacking co-dependency and boundaries with life coach Susie Pettit.

    In RERUN episode #103, Mel and Trish were excited to sit down with life coach Susie Pettit to discuss people pleasing and co-dependency - what it is, how it shows up in midlife and how to deal with it. The more the girls chatted with Susie, the more ah-ha moments there were as they identified what was happening in their own lives. But the good stuff doesn’t end there. The chat then moved onto boundaries or guidelines as Susie calls them. What are they, how to deal with push-back and how are we getting them so wrong?
    Susie Pettit is an educator, certified Parent, Life and Wellness Coach and the mum of five sons ranging in age from 8-26. She is the host of the ‘Love Your Life Show’ podcast. She runs a monthly membership for Midlife Warriors and is the owner of Strength: Mind and Body.
    This is a big episode content-wise because Susie doesn't just talk the talk but really has walked the walk. She’s an incredible woman with a powerful story and at all times, has demonstrated great resilience which she now shares through her work.
    Enjoy the dynamic Susie Pettit.

    DGAF RERUN:‘Live Big, Love Big,’ A chat with creator and founder of T.House, Tina Nettlefold

    DGAF RERUN:‘Live Big, Love Big,’ A chat with creator and founder of T.House, Tina Nettlefold

    In DGAF RERUN episode #102 Mel and Trish jumped online with Tina Nettlefold, founder and creator of T.House, an online platform that sells a philanthropic range of unique, limited-edition homewares. Tina lives by the mantra ‘live big, love big,’ which for her means to do as much as you can and give as much as you can. 
    At the age of 60, and with a successful corporate career behind her, Tina decided to follow her heart and pursue a project that she was truly passionate about, one that not only brings her a lot of joy, but gives back to charities T.House exclusively supports.
    A larger than life, powerhouse of energy and enthusiasm, Tina is also a passionate advocate for midlife women harnessing their inner fight to follow their passions and live big.
    She believes there’s true beauty in ageing and says, “we have so much to offer our younger generations.” Isn’t that the truth.
    Enjoy.

    DGAF RERUN: ‘Style is More Than a Neckline,’ a deep dive on fashion and styling with personal stylist, Sally Mackinnon.

    In DGAF RERUN episode #101, Mel and Trish were thrilled to chat with Melbourne’s most experienced personal stylist and wardrobe consultant, Sally Mackinnon. Sally’s very personable nature and undeniable knowledge were clearly evident in this super charged chat about the many facets of personal style & how it impacts us as 50ishers. The girls tackle the hot topic of body shapes, address budgets, and the important role stylists can play in the ultra-busy lives of the modern woman. Believe it or not, stylists actually save us money! As Sally says, “clothing is powerful, not frivolous.”
    Enjoy the ultra-relatable and intuitive styling prowess of Sally Mackinnon.

    DGAF RERUN: ‘Happy, Healthy You,’ conversations about midlife with Lisa Curry

    DGAF RERUN: ‘Happy, Healthy You,’ conversations about midlife with Lisa Curry

    This RERUN was from episode #77 and in this episode Mel and Trish sit down with their long-term friend Lisa Curry to chat about, among other things, life, business, and hormones. Although Lisa is well known for her sporting achievements, television appearances and involvement on the speaking circuit, many don’t realise she is also a successful businesswoman.
    In 2015, Lisa established Happy Healthy You, an Australian-based health and lifestyle company with women’s hormonal specialist and Naturopath, Jeff Butterworth. 
    Although the girls have never wanted to hyper-focus on hormones, in the end, it’s an unavoidable topic for midlife women. The impact of the modern lifestyle often leads to poor sleep, low energy, hormonal mood swings, poor immunity, dull skin, and unhappy gut health. The awareness of these extensive issues led to Lisa and Jeff developing a suite of high-quality products, programs and recipes supported by an experience team of natural practitioners. There is also an impressively large community-based support group, all found in their one-stop-shop online business.
    As Lisa says, “its important our bodies are working for us, not against us.”
    Of course, with such a long history of friendship, there is also a lot of laughs, reminiscing and tearful moments. 
    Enjoy this super-charged chat with Lisa Curry.

    Gen X Decoding Gen Y & Z.

    Gen X Decoding Gen Y & Z.

    Following on from an early episode in the ‘Don’t Give a Fifty’ back catalogue, episode #98 saw Mel & Trish in the studio with Trish’s nieces Matilda, Baillie and Mollie and her children, Lily and Wiley for a fun, educational chat about talking to our younger generations.
    From the outset, this is an ultra-dynamic episode with the gang from Gen Y & Z putting Mel and Trish through their generational paces. There are quizzes, lots of banter, a confession that we Gen X’ers know a thing or two, and you will learn a new meaning for the name ‘Barbara.’
    Enjoy!

    ‘All in a Day’s Work - The Extraordinary in the Ordinary: Getting to Know our Tribe,’ with Critical Care Paramedic, Linda Down and Senior Fire Fighter, Kirsty Holmes.

    ‘All in a Day’s Work - The Extraordinary in the Ordinary: Getting to Know our Tribe,’ with Critical Care Paramedic, Linda Down and Senior Fire Fighter, Kirsty Holmes.

    In episode #98, Mel & Trish invited their 50isher friends Linda Dow and Kirsty Holmes into the studio to chat about the significant role they play in saving lives as a critical care paramedic and senior fire fighter.
    The magic lies in the fact these two ultra-humble women, don’t see anything remarkable about what they do for a living. For Kirsty and Linda, it’s all in a day’s work. Mel & Trish, however, beg to differ, and as the conversation unfolds, it becomes obvious that they are, in fact, very extraordinary and rather than slipping under the radar as anonymous ‘ambos’ and ‘firies’, should be acknowledged, and celebrated.
    Enjoy these two exceptional women.
