career health mindset Aug 23, 2022

This week’s guest is Rachel Lankester, the founder of Magnificent Midlife, an online hub celebrating and empowering women 40+. Rachel is also the author of Magnificent Midlife: Transform Your Middle Years, Menopause and Beyond and host of the Magnificent Midlife podcast.

After a shocking early menopause diagnosis at 41, she scratched her own itch and created what she wasn't able to find to help herself: educational resources and an online membership to help women vibrantly transition through the sometimes messy middle of life.

In this episode, Rachel and I talked about:

  • Hormone test results that led to several different confusing and contradictory menopause diagnoses
  • The magnificent message of her book and why it’s divided into three different phases
  • Ageism and how older women are treated in different cultures
  • Menopause symptoms and her best tips on how to navigate that stage of life

Having extensively researched menopause and ageism, Rachel offers a different and encouraging perspective on how to make the aging process a positive one, which offers hope to all of us who have entered this stage of life!
