    Inner Authority with Blair Glaser

    Inner Authority with Blair Glaser

    Are you walking in circles?  Having trouble focusing?  Eating an entire cake in one sitting?  We are, so we called Blair Glaser for help.  
    We asked her, is it possible to maintain your own self-authority even during this time of distress and panic?  Blair says yes, even if it means authorizing your own personal meltdown.  Own it and make it a good one.  
    Listen to our very helpful and playful conversation with Blair, a leadership mentor, executive consultant and creative problem solver.  She gives us several creative ways to manage anxiety and uncertainty.  And she offers us tools to find solace and inner strength when we feel scared and alone.  
    Tough times.  Tough women.
    We are happy to share this conversation, and Blair, with you.

    Well-Aging, with Rochelle Weitzner

    Well-Aging, with Rochelle Weitzner

    Listen up.  Rochelle Weitzner wants to talk about menopause.  It all started with a trip to the beach.  Rochelle had a flash that led her on a path to changing the way we think about beauty and aging. Her company, Pause Well-Aging, offers skin care products designed especially for women in all three stages of menopause. But it hasn’t been an easy road.  Rochelle has come up against a lot of resistance from an industry that has always believed beauty and beauty products are for the young.  The good news is that Rochelle is determined and her mission is catching on.  “Pause is more than just skincare.  It’s a movement affirming that beauty gets better with age.”  
    That’s a plot twist we’ve long been waiting for.

    How To Be a Legend In Your Own Life With Randi Levin

    After she turned 50, Randi Levin started asking herself, What’s next?  She also began to wonder about legacy. What is it exactly? Can everyone have one?  She decided that legacy is more than just something we leave behind. Instead, we can have an impact right here and right now.  With a desire to help others she decided to become a life coach. On the day she was signing up for her coaching certification, a receptionist gave her two words of advice, “just start.”  She took that advice and hasn’t stopped since. Randi calls herself a Transitional Life Strategist who guides others through the process of change. She insists we can all become legends in our own lives. We just have to start.
