The Midlife Showdown: Standing Tall and Holding Your Own with Liza Baker


The menopause years, where we become experts in the fine art of standing up for ourselves. It’s like getting a Ph.D. in being an unstoppable force.

When you reach a certain age, it seems like we’re surrounded by people who think they can dismiss our opinions because we don’t know what we’re talking about.

Unfortunately for them, they quickly find out that we’ve got the ultimate weapons in our arsenal: a lifetime of experience, a low tolerance of bull**** and a sharp tongue.

Whether it’s politely reminding someone that we have an opinion and we’re not afraid to share it when required or whether someone thinks they can steamroller us into doing something that isn’t quite what we wanted to do, we menopausal women know how to make our presence known.

The problem is we can often feel like we’re doing that alone when that need not be the case. It’s time to build the village around ourselves. Join me and Liza Baker in conversation about the benefits of growing older and how we can connect and support each other.
