    Do you need a midlife sabbatical? An interview with Rachel Lloyd

    Do you need a midlife sabbatical? An interview with Rachel Lloyd

    What would a tarot card reader need to say for you to make a seismic change in your life? For Rachel Lloyd, the tarot card reader said exactly what she had been thinking-quietly and privately. Hearing the words out loud was the catalyst that Rachel needed to make the huge decision to leave her job when she was at the absolute top of her career. Rachel didn't leave for another corporate opportunity or even another career path. She left to breathe and to think, to be present-a true midlife sabbatical. I can't wait for you to hear Rachel's story. I am sure it will undoubtedly inspire you to take a good hard look at your own life. I know it has for me. 
    Speaking of doing something bold and amazing...This is the LAST week to reserve a space and join a group of amazing midlife women on a small group, boutique trip to Guatemala. We will climb an active volcano, stroll the UNESCO protected streets of colorful Antigua, have lunch with a Mayan family, visit a 150-year-old coffee farm, meet with an industrious group of female entrepreneurs, take a boat ride on the most majestic lake in the world, and more. This life changing trip leaves June 10th, 2023, and is $1,299. Travel is indeed the only thing you buy that makes you richer. Contact me for more information: britathere@hotmail.com Check out the full itinerary at: Women's Trip to Guatemala, June 2023 Tickets, Sat, Jun 10, 2023 at 2:00 PM | Eventbrite

    Updates! 4 BIG updates from previous guests and a little update from me

    We are due for an update, my friend. Today I am sharing major updates for four previous guests: Katie Walters, Alex Kusis, Catherine Magee, and Jessica Renfeldt. If you are like me, you love seeing women rise and doing great things. These updates/stories are perfect examples of rising! My absolute favorite part of this podcast has been growing and developing relationships with amazing women-like you! I can't wait for you to celebrate their wins alongside them. I am also sharing some thoughts on why I have not recorded many solo episodes lately and the future of the podcast. I talk about my deep love of travel. Though I am not picking up and moving the family to Central America anytime soon, I do feel a burning need to incorporate more travel and culture in my life.

Bree DELIVERS on her promises to midlife women!

In the intro to her podcast, Bree promises that the conversation will be engaging, sometimes educational, a little bit funny, and always real. And she delivers!!! I love the positive energy that she brings to this midlife conversation. But she definitely keeps it real, which I appreciate most of all!

MorganBeveridge ,

Must listen for midlife women

Bree is such a engaging and enthusiastic host! She’s chosen engaging topics and guests who give motivation and inspiration to women in midlife.

EmRCoaching ,

Worth your time!

I just discovered this podcast and it’s the one I didn’t know I needed! I found myself nodding along in agreement as Bree talked through midlife malaise - the idea of doing things that scare and excite you really hit home. Looking forward to more!
