    The End of Midlife-A-Go-Go the podcast . . . For Now

    The End of Midlife-A-Go-Go the podcast . . . For Now

    This episode is my goodbye to you, the Midlife-A-Go-Go the podcast audience. The podcast is going on an indefinite hiatus. But please don't let that stop you from continuing to experience the wonderful bounty of episodes that focus on midlife women.
    Over the past three years, I've recorded 76 episodes. That's a true accomplishment for me. Now, it's time for me to hang up my microphone – for now – and focus on other pursuits in my life. It's been a wonderful ride and I would never have made it this far without a loyal audience who listened, commented, engaged and recommended the show to others.
    So to you, the audience, I say thank you.

    Real Talk: Menopause and Our Vaginas with Dr. Lauren Streicher

    Let's get straight to the point. Ladies, we have vaginas. By the time we reach midlife, things began to happen to our vaginas. We're plagued with everything from odor to painful intercourse  — and many of these problems can be attributed to menopause. So what can we do about it?
    On the show is Clinical Professor of Obstetrics, Author, Gynecologist and Sexual Medical Expert Dr. Lauren Streicher. She's here to give us the straight talk on menopause and our vagina. No cutesy terms, no fluff, no b******t. She's giving it to us straight.

    Thermaband: Using the Power of Technology to Relieve Menopause Symptoms with Debbie and Markea Dickinson

    Thermaband: Using the Power of Technology to Relieve Menopause Symptoms with Debbie and Markea Dickinson

    Like many women my age, when I first came into perimenopause and hot flashes assaulted my body, I didn't know what was happening. But there they were – night and day, relentless. Surprisingly, at that time in my life, I had never had 'the talk' with my mom about what to expect from peri- or menopause so I was unprepared for it. Today, that shouldn't be the case. 
    Peri- and menopause can hit many in many different ways, but the most common symptom that we all know about is hot flashes. So what can we do about hot flashes? After suffering from hot flashes during perimenopause, a black mother and daughter joined forces to create a smart tech wearable that provides relief during hot flashes and night sweats.
    Meet Debbie and Markea Dickinson, the dynamic mother/daughter duo behind Thermaband. They've developed this product to help women regulate their body temperature.

    Stepping Up Your Game & Elevating Your Business through Social Media with Francine Sinclair

    Stepping Up Your Game & Elevating Your Business through Social Media with Francine Sinclair

    The rise of social media. Now more than ever it’s important to have a presence on at least one social media platform if you’re in business. As an over 40 female entrepreneur or solopreneur, are you using social media to the best of its advantage for your business? Does the thought of getting on a new platform or trying to conquer one platform over another scare you or drive you bananas? Let me tell you, I’ve been there and at times social media can be a bit confusing. So are you ready to reign everything in and tackle social media from the right angle? 
    Meet Francine Sinclair. Francine is the founder of Francine Sinclair Social Media. A social media strategist who works with small business owners 40 years old and better, she helps her clients, on average, get 10 times more engagement, visibility and leads. On the show, Francine and I talk about the importance of social media for 40 female entrepreneurs and solopreneurs (and those looking to finally realize their dream and launch their own business). We talk about quality over quantity, sticking with the right social platform and more.

    Forget About People-Pleasing – Break Through the Fear and Start Setting Boundaries with Val Selby

    Forget About People-Pleasing – Break Through the Fear and Start Setting Boundaries with Val Selby

    Every one of us has had that moment where someone in our lives stepped over the proverbial line. They did something or said something that was the last straw. That was probably a pivotal point for many of you...that time when you realized a boundary was crossed. But what if you live your life with no boundaries, and you're such a people-pleaser that even when people go too far, you sit back and silently let them?
    On this episode, my guest is Val Selby. Val had horrible boundaries with a 'friend' who constantly took her for granted and was always the receiver in the friendship, not the giver. When she decided to set boundaries with her, it didn't go over too well. But Val did it — she set her boundaries and stood her ground. Today, Val still believes in having boundaries, and she has learned to embrace her bold new life.

    Keeping it Clean with the Godmother of the Charlotte Comedy Scene with Tara Brown

    Keeping it Clean with the Godmother of the Charlotte Comedy Scene with Tara Brown

    We could all use a good laugh every now and then . . . amiright? Laughter has so many benefits, including lowering stress, burning a few calories (but don't rely on it solely for your weight loss regimen!), protecting the heart, and improving our mental health. Who knew?!?
    On this episode, my guest is comedienne Tara Brown and she believes in bringing the funny. As a midlife comedienne herself, Tara's routine includes hilarious insights on being a midlife woman. She's a clean comedy, steering clear of the unnecessary vulgar and obscenity found in a lot of comedian's material.

Absolutely Incredible!!

What an amazing podcast. I did some research and recommended this to an aunt of mine a few months back and she has thanked me on multiple occasions for sending it to her. Just sent it over to my mom who is nearing the age of 50 as well and am hoping for her to receive the goodness and love that Valerie is providing for her audience
