There is an abundance of information on creating a great life for those in their 20s, 30s, and even 40s, but truly little for those 50 and beyond. The media seems to think we should either be chasing our past glory days by clinging to youth with a white knuckle death grip OR just quietly fading into the background and letting life pass by. Yet, this time of life brings an amazing opportunity to combine our wisdom and experience with our passion and enthusiasm and refine, redefine, and reinvent who we want to be and how we want to live. Let’s get started!

    Simplifying Skin Care in Midlife (with Dr. Mina)

    Simplifying Skin Care in Midlife (with Dr. Mina)

    Dr. Mina is a Harvard trained dermatologist and host of The Skin Real podcast is on a mission to provide people with real skin care information and advice. In this episode she discusses misconceptions and ways to simplify skin care, the three products we should all be using, skin changes as we age, and even shares a bit about how men’s skin care is different.

    I am guilty of not putting much thought into skin care so this was a fun and valuable conversation for me. I really appreciate her message that skin care doesn’t have to be complicated and it doesn’t have to be super expensive.

    Building a Pre-Retirement Flight Plan in Your Fifties (with Bill and Pete Bush)

    Building a Pre-Retirement Flight Plan in Your Fifties (with Bill and Pete Bush)

    Most retirement conversations seem to hinge around dollars and dates – how much do you have and when will you retire. Bill and Pete Bush are financial planners who approach the conversation a bit differently and share how our 50s are the time to really be thinking through what we want our retirement to look like, what will we be doing, how will we be contributing to our lives and the world, and the importance of planning our health, not just our wealth for retirement. I really enjoyed their perspective on thinking about retirement and they were just great fun to talk to.

    Along with running Horizon Financial Group, they are authors of The Runway Decade: Building a Pre-Retirement Flight Plan in Your Fifties and hosts of The Runway Decade Podcast. You can find more about them along with tools and other planning resources at: https://www.horizonfg.com/

    Inspiration for Midlife Women (with Alison Jacobson)

    Inspiration for Midlife Women (with Alison Jacobson)

    Alison Jacobson hosts the podcast “Midlife Mavericks,” coaches midlife women, and is author of the book “Daily Inspiration for Midlife Women: A Guide to Peace, Joy, Confidence, and Abundance.”

    I am very excited to have Alison as a guest as we share a similar view of the power of midlife. In this conversation, we discuss:



    * Getting past self-doubt.

    * Taking on new challenges, like when she ran her first marathon at 58.

    * Living confidentially.

    * Reconnecting with who we used to be.

    * Approaching new things with a sense of wonder and vulnerability.

    * Fear of not being enough.

    * Courage to live an imperfect life.



     

    Alison’s expertise is with women, but everything discussed applies to men, too. You can learn more about her at www.alison-jacobson.com.

    Retiring Better (with Joe Allaria)

    Retiring Better (with Joe Allaria)

    This episode is about retirement, but not really about saving or investing. Rather, Joe Allaria, CFP and host of The Retirement Power Hour Podcast, joins me to discuss thinking about the lifestyle of retirement and creating a fulfilling retirement. Sure, the numbers are important, but if the average retirement is almost two decades, it’s just as important to be thinking about quality of life.

    He also discusses some of the myths of retirement, the different levels of retirement (it’s not all or nothing), and what we could all be doing now to prepare.

    I really enjoyed Joe’s perspective as it inspired me to think about retirement differently than I ever had before. You can hear more of Joe’s thoughts on his podcast at: https://www.retirementpowerhourpodcast.com/ or learn more about him at his company’s website: https://carsonallaria.com/our-team/joe-allaria/

    Happily Married (with Theresa DeWit)

    Happily Married (with Theresa DeWit)

    Theresa DeWit has a huge vision: to make a difference in one million marriages. Like many visions, it started out smaller. She just wanted to pass some marriage advice on to her 20-something kids. That advice has grown into a best-selling book, an online course, and relationship coaching.

    Theresa shares some of her insights and strategies to improve midlife marriages. I appreciated the simplicity and practicality of her approach: being intentional, creating joy, and understanding your partner’s needs. She also discussed where she sees people getting in their own way in their relationships.

    Our relationships are a key part of midlife and Theresa shares simple but important ways to create joyful marriages.

    You can connect with Theresa at JoyfullyMarried.com or on Instagram @Theresa_DeWit

Subscribe Worthy Show

Broc is a great host who isn't afraid of a deep dive. Middle age is just another great opportunity to show up in the world as our best selves, it's not the end of anything. Be sure to subscribe to this show so you don't miss out. You won't regret it!

Love every episode! ,

Refreshing and relevant

There are not a ton of midlife podcast run by men, so I really appreciate this one! Broc covers so many topics relevant to midlife that I look forward to every episode. Thank you!

Next Level Gratitude ,

Show title is misleading

I’m really enjoying Broc’s laid back style. He’s an intent listener who then comes back with insightful questions to take the conversation deeper.

Not sure we ever actually master midlife (or any stage of life), however this is a podcast that gives you useful tools for getting a good handle on it!

PS: Was being sarcastic with my review title! 🤣
