Does the advice ‘just follow your passion’ make you tired or are you weary of seeing middle aged women portrayed as helpless victims of their hormones? You’re not a Millennial, but you’re also not over the hill yet. Do you find yourself somewhere more in the...middle? Then join Lana, Jen, and Tara, who offer a fresh, positive take on mid life--because it’s not a crisis! Sandwiched between boomers and millennials, this podcast is for Gen Xers who know midlife isn’t about trying to look like they’re still in their twenties or wearing themselves out attempting to regain their youth. We’re proud of our wrinkles, scars, and saggy skin, because we’ve earned them! Join us as we discard society’s ideals about who we’re supposed to be and figure out this next exciting phase of our lives. Here’s Reinventing Midlife: They may not know the answers, but they’re going to talk about it anyway!

As a busy, working mom; that is always running my four kids around in the car, I enjoy podcasts and I’ll now add this one to my queue. These three resilient women are all so down to earth that I feel like they are actually keeping me company in my car as I listen and laugh out loud Their show is the perfect combination of content rich material that gets you thinking, and just some lighthearted mid-life mom laughs. Hearing how they balance raising kids, overcoming personal trials and tribulations, all while helping their audience is truly inspirational! If you’re a mid-life mom...tune in!
Can’t wait to listen in!!
I’ve known Tara for years, and she’s one of those people you just want to be around, the cool older sister (atleast by a couple of years for me). If the rest of these ladies are anything like Tara, you are in for a treat. One thing I know is Tara’s friends are ANYTHING but boring!
This trailer was more of a teaser, and I am excited to listen in and hear more of what these ladies are going to share! One of the podcasts I’ve subscribed to that I will actually WANT to tune into every week!
I think this was a good idea for a podcast and the themes seemed interesting. I was out off by the sound quality— it sounded like they were all talking on the phone.
