I remember feeling lost and directionless after my mother passed away in 2016. When I resurfaced from my grieving, I started searching for the answer to the big “What Now?” question that was hanging over me.

So I do this with my 3-part proprietary process called The ACE Approach, which stands for awareness, clarity and ease. In this podcast, you’ll hear midlife stories that make you think, learn simple life hacks that make it easy to take action, hear interviews with experts that will keep you feeling youthful, and discover strategies that will help you believe in yourself again.
