Living your best life after 50

As a woman, what does it take to live your best life after 50? Is it about your physical health? Or the amount of money you have? Or the degree of success you have already achieved? It’s a sad fact that many women feel that the best part of their life is over when they reach 50 and start to go through menopause. I disagree!

Creating a supportive entrepreneurial environment

Creating a supportive entrepreneurial environment is essential to new entrepreneurs no matter what your age or experience. For me, this is all about the people you surround yourself with in your business.

Napoleon Hill said:

“Close friends and relatives, while not meaning to do so, often handicap one through “opinions” and sometimes through ridicule, which is meant to be humorous. Thousands of men and women carry inferiority complexes with them all through life, because some well-meaning, but ignorant person destroyed their confidence through “opinions” or ridicule.” (Think…  read more

Finding strength through authenticity

“Walt Disney told his crew to ‘build the castle first’ when constructing Disney World, knowing that vision would continue to serve as motivation throughout the project. Oftentimes when people fail to achieve what they want in life, it’s because their vision isn’t strong enough.” – Gail Blanke, President and CEO, Lifedesigns

Why become a Midlife Entrepreneur?

Women Against State Pension Inequality (WASPI) have called for a local day of action on 16 September. Women in the UK born after 1953 have seen their State Pension Age rise from 60 to 65 and then to 67. This has left many women with a shortfall in their pensions of as much as £40,000.

Menopause Diagnosis

I am often asked, ‘How do I know that what I am experiencing is menopause? Is there a menopause diagnosis? The doctor just says it’s my age but could it be something else?’

Menopause isn’t an illness. It is like the twin of puberty. The reproductive hormones, oestrogen and progesterone, start to decline after our mid 20s but that decline accelerates from our mid 30s.

A Menopause Experience in India

During my recent visit to India to speak at the Women Economic Forum, I was invited to speak at the Zorba the Buddha Spiritual Centre on the subject of using mind/body techniques for menopause symptoms.  It is the subject I am most passionate about so the only answer was ‘Yes’!

The centre is an oasis of calm in the mayhem that is Delhi. You turn off the busy, noisy main road into quitter back streets and then walk through a…  read more
