Today’s guest is Jeanne Blasberg, a seasoned author on the brink of releasing her third book, who shares her captivating story of starting anew at the age of 58 by bravely venturing into the realm of regenerative farming alongside her husband in a state she had never visited, leaving behind their former life in bustling Boston.

Our conversation unravels the profound impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, which served as a catalyst for Jeanne to reevaluate her existence and how she was contributing to the world after launching her 3 children. What that process led to was a profound shift towards minimizing her material possessions and moving towards a sustainable lifestyle focused on cultivating the land and developing a new model for food sourcing.

In this episode we talked about:

  • The term reinvention and what it means to each of us having both gone through midlife pivots.
  • Her latest novel,'Daughter of a Promise,' and how writing has impacted her life.
  • How connecting with nature has been key for her on this personal growth path.
