    S4 E14- It’s Never Too Late! Personal & Professional Reboots in Midlife with Nancy Shenker

    Rules? What Rules? Don't you love women who live life the way they want to live it? Nancy A Shenker is a women of all trades and a rule-breaker! She has had many fascinating careers (marketing, branding, C-level executive, author, speaker and entrepreneur) and isn't about to slow down now that she's in the later part of midlife. She still works efficiently and has mastered working smarter, not harder. In fact she has coined the period of life she's in "pre-tirement" and lives her life on her terms and is fulfilled doing so. She's also really good at saying "no".



    Join Lauren and Nancy as they speak about; the trajectory of her career, how she came to become comfortable in her own skin and learning to trust her gut, how she embraces aging, the definition of "pre-tirement", Nancy's new blog series "Route 66", Nancy's philosophies about fashion, behaviors and working after 60, and the advice she gives to women in their 20's and 30's and for women 60 and beyond.

    S4 E13 Midlife Bites! You’re Not Alone If You Feel You’re Falling Apart With Jen Mann

    S4 E13 Midlife Bites! You’re Not Alone If You Feel You’re Falling Apart With Jen Mann

    Some days you think you've got this aging thing under control and others it brings you to your knees. It's a roller coaster ride. Am I right? But knowing there are other women just like you makes it bearable. So does having a sense of humor about it. Author Jen Mann was motivated to write her hysterical book Midlife Bites: Anyone Else Falling Apart, Or Is It Just Me? after she had a midlife crisis that kicked her in the ass. She even started an active Facebook community where middle-age women can speak openly about their journey ... because we are far from alone. Clearly.



    In this episode, Jen and I discuss what inspired her to write the book, why she believes this generation of midlifers won't age quietly, why she decided to be so candid about everything from sprouting hairs in unsuspecting places to scheduling sex with her husband, how and why she stepped out of her comfort zone, how she changed her perspective on the whole aging process, and so much more.

    S4 E12 Why You Should Just Choose To Be Really Freaking Happy!

    S4 E12 Why You Should Just Choose To Be Really Freaking Happy!

    Fake it till you make it...or actually believe it. Make the choice to change your attitude to be happy. Happiness Rainmaker, Women's Advocate and Author Peggy Sullivan believes it's as simple as that when she spreads happiness and positivity wherever she goes. In fact, she started the SheCAN! Network to empower women professionals to succeed by supporting each other.



    Low self-confidence steals our joy. Happy, positive people live longer lives, have decreased anxiety, have higher productivity and attract positive people.



    Join Lauren and Peggy as they talk about what we can do to put "happiness" on the front burner, why having good personal energy is so important, how happiness is both an art and a science, her "happiness tripod theory," how we can make happiness actionable and the SheCAN! community she created.

    S4 E11 – The Ticking Clock On TikTok Beauty Trends

    S4 E11 – The Ticking Clock On TikTok Beauty Trends

    You might think those quick-hitting beauty hacks on TikTok are for millennials, but women of a certain age fall for them too. Some are good and some are downright dangerous. How do you discern between the two? Join Lauren in this lively discussion on the dangers of TikTok beauty trends with Avoila founders, Kristy Hunston and Grace O'Sullivan.



    In this episode they discuss; why these TikTok (and IG Reels) trends are so dangerous, why we need to trust our gut and better judgement, some of the worst offenders (like slugging, DIY face masks, DIY teeth whitening, sunscreen contouring, makeup microneedling and more), a couple trends that are actually worth your time and a bit about Avoila skincare which is organic, plant-based and actually good for your skin.

    S4 E10 Gut Microbiome: Clearing Up Confusion and Misconceptions

    S4 E10 Gut Microbiome: Clearing Up Confusion and Misconceptions

    Last season I had Dr. Ben Johnson on the podcast to discuss the foods that cause skin imbalances and it took a shocking turn (listen to S3 E13 How Women Are Being Slowly Poisoned Unwittingly). So I knew I needed to have him back on. This time we are talking about gut microbiome because there is so much confusion around this hot topic.





    Dr. Ben Johnson is the founder and formulator of Osmosis Beauty with the goal of changing the direction of skincare with a focus on dermal remodeling, barrier and DNA repair and detoxification. The line includes non-toxic professional skincare, healthy makeup and holistic wellness.



    In this episode we discuss what exactly gut microbiome is and why it's so important, what we need to know about gut health, what are some misconceptions about gut health, some of the lies we have been lead to believe about our gut health, if gut health is the culprit behind skin issues, the best ways to improve gut health and how to know if what we are doing is actually working.

    S4 E9 Stop With The Self-Sacrifice! It’s Time To Love Yourself More

    S4 E9 Stop With The Self-Sacrifice! It’s Time To Love Yourself More

    Most women have been conditioned to believe that self-love is selfish and that self-sacrifice is a virtue. Therefore they do everything for everyone else and are disappointed when they don't get back what they give and are left drained and exhausted. Entrepreneur, speaker and single mom Jenna Banks has set out to crush these myths about how we should relate to ourselves in her new book "I Love Me More: How To Find Happiness and Success Through Self-Love."



    I could not put this book down – highlighting and dog-earring many of the pages. It's a book I feel every woman needs to read. Join me as I sit down to talk to Jenna about how to truly love ourselves. And by that she means loving yourself more than anyone else – more than your spouse, more than your kids, more than your family and more than your friends. Seems a bit narcissistic? It's not! Your relationship with yourself is the most important relationship you will ever have.



    In this episode we discuss what made Jenna write this book, how you can love yourself more than anyone else without seeming narcissistic, how a mother can put herself before her children (which can seem counter-intuitive), signs that you are lacking self-love, the difference between self-love and self-care, how we can start loving ourselves TODAY, how we turn off that inner critic and become our own cheerleaders and how to recognize and cut off an energy vampire.

Excellent

Great advice, easy to follow. Quick podcast that kept me engaged. Good to know that I'm not alone in sleep issues. Given the 3 - 3 - 3 Idea, looks like I don't have apnea or iknsomnia. But as far as the cell phone is concerned - - GUILTY!
