I’m Mickie Zada and I lived in abuse…for 34 years…from age 19 until I was 53. I believe we create our realities, and I chose to stay in a damaging relationship for so long because I thought it was my Calling. I was wrong. I changed me. I am now an enthusiastic participant in Life. “The words ‘I am’ are potent words; be careful what you hitch them to. The thing you’re claiming has a way of reaching back and claiming you.” A.L. Kitselman I am a strong woman, a fabulous woman, over 60 years old. I am a Change-agent. I am an encourager. I am uniquely qualified to speak to living in abuse, getting out and surviving to the fullest extent. I know what it takes. I know the fear. I am a survivor. I am a coach. I am happy to have these “I Am” words to reach back and claim me! The actions I teach and share are those that I’ve learned in my Journey from choosing to live in abuse to choosing to create my authentic life; safe, sound, Real. I invite you to read through this web page. Think about who I Am. Read blogs, listen to some podcasts, watch live videos. Do we connect? I am open and exposed. Choose to reach out to me or not. What I know for sure is that I lived the life of abuse, and got out, and I’ve thrived, to serve as a beacon to other women. If you live in abuse, or you’ve recently escaped, it’s my Mission to support and encourage you to choose and live a healthy life. The materials, the tools, the support is here. It’s your responsibility to grab hold and change yourself, from the in-side out. Stories of women who have reinvented themselves for the second half of their lives. You hear where they have come from, what inspired their transformations and you can follow their path to having the life you really want. Figuring It Out After 50 is about taking your life from where you were to WHO you ARE!

Customer Reviews

Go Mickie! Great show!

What a wonderful podcast! Inspirational, motivational, and wildly entertaining at the same time. I love the stories you are sharing, Mickie. Keep up the great work.


When I was a Disc Jockey in high school, I thoroughly enjoyed the shift that included broadcasts from NPR. This included newscasts and story time. Loved listening to the story about Rosie and realized about a third of the way through it, that this seemed to parallel what little I know of you, Mickie. This also reminded me of those years as a disc jockey and just how far I've come and how much further I truly plan on going/reaching. Thank you, Mickie. This was wonderful!


Your words couldn't have helped me more! I'm sure many more are being helped that don't let you know.#SHATTERPROOFPodcast
